about us

«Sounds of Matter» is a cooperation between the Faculty of Physics of the University of Vienna and the University of Music and Performing Arts. The composition competition is realised under the guidance of University Prof. Mag. Johannes Kretz, Chairman of the Institute for Composition, Electroacoustics and Tonmeister Education

The project is funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) as part of its Science Communication Program, and portraits the findings of the following seven FWF research projects in the field of Material Physics:

Univ.-Prof. Mag. Dr. Thomas Pichler:

[P 27769] Elektron/Spin-korrelationen in Nanokohlenstoffmetallhybriden

               → Nano Carbon-Metal Hybrids

 

Univ.-Prof. Mag. Dr. Christoph Dellago:

[P 24681] Nukleation und Wachstum in kleinen Systemen

               → Nucleation
