Forum Artistic Research


Mersid Ramičević

Born in 1981 in Novi Pazar, Yugoslavia, Mersid Ramičević has lived mostly in Sarajevo, studied and performed throughout Europe and is now a doctoral candidate at the Academy of Music and Drama, University of Gothenburg. He’s a composer, media artist and researcher with a focus on notated music and acousmatic composition, sound art practices and improvisation. Mersid has also received several artist residencies and been commissioned to create new works. Using phonography as a research tool, he navigates the fluctuating materialities of musical becoming, attending to obsolescence, deskilling, post-natural listening and states of migration. He is interested in the overlapping of musical and personal identities and the primacy of research concerns over an artistic position through archival research that determines how an aesthetic is conceived.
