Julia Schauerman is an electroacoustic composer, improviser and community artist; she has been involved in over 30 collaborations in the last 2 years and works closely with digital art group Genetic Moo. Her work has been presented internationally, including Mexico, Canada and Norway.  

Julia recently completed a Composition MA, with distinction, at The University of Sheffield and has now begun a practice-led research PhD at University of the Arts London and is a member of Creative Research into Sound Arts Practice (CRiSAP).

Julia’s interests include composing ecologically themed works and exploring the use of electroacoustic techniques within community arts practice. She is currently an artist-in-residence at the Leverhulme Centre for Anthropocene Biodiversity at the University of York, where she is collaborating with LCAB researcher Theo Tomking on a work about sustainable food production. In February 2023, Julia will take part in a knowledge exchange research project with the Music Mind Machine research centre at The University of Sheffield and Sheffcare Ltd, a care provider for people living with dementia.

Twenty-five 2-hour programmes, broadcast on Genetic Moo’s YouTube channel, documenting their digital ecosystem experiments and virtual collaborations.
