Maciek Odrowaz


I am a creative technologist based in Copenhagen. Working in the field of web development and interaction design. Fascinated by human perception since childhood. Focuses on creating engaging and immersive multi-sensory experiences. I have a solid technical background and hands-on experience. Highly skilled in various modern technologies including Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, computer vision and machine learning. I am an original thinker, innovative by nature and interested in pushing the boundaries of design.

I have begun my scholar career from solidifying ground in the field of creative music technology. Developed a keen interest in visual programming languages and innovations in music interfaces. Worked with sound for film, both on set and in post-production (over 70 productions). I have expanded my technical skills by learning scripting and programming. Gained professional experience in frontend development. My further academic research has been focused on human perception and interaction design. I am currently pursuing a career with new media and technology in the creative technical field.

Audio experiments

Alongside the scholar's research and professional career I have spent countless hours experimenting with sound and various new technologies. Carefully following new developments in the field of creative music technology. I have started programming from learning visual languages which offer lower entry threshold and are more immediate to catch on because of the visual aspects. For me programming as an activity offers a unique opportunity to regularly challenge my mind and technical skills for example by recreating software and hardware products released onto the market. Besides exercising my mind on such challenges I am constantly working on creating new and original concepts for sound generating and processing tools.

I find the human ability to perceive sound and visuals fascinating. I enjoy playing with those senses by creating multilateral experiences where those domains intertwine. My goal is to tear down the partition and find a common ground where sound, interaction and visuals can coexist. I am keen on sharing my knowledge, I have successfully conducted talks about audio programming and sound synthesis.
