Giertz has a background in choreography as well as engineering, and her artistic practice emerges from this physical aspects. Today she works with movement of sound in relation to bodies, structures and electronics. She often works with immersive audio and multichannel sound composition.
Since the interaction between the listener and the movements of sound in the threedimentional space is such a vital part of her artistic method, the stereo versions on this website will just give an idea of the music and can not be compared with the acutal physical experience of being a part of the composition.
She has presented works at the Venice Biennale, Intonal, Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Audiorama, MDT, K3 Hamburg, Norrlandsoperan and Norberg amongst others.
She gives lectures in immersive audio, synthesis and composition at the Malmö Arts Academy and Elektronmusikstudion (EMS) in Stockholm. As an audio engineer she is currently supervising the development of the surroundsound studio at the Royal Arts Academy in Stockholm.
Giertz is based in Stockholm since 2019.
