Çağrı Erdem is a performer and researcher specializing in improvised electroacoustic music and body–machine instruments. Following training in composition and guitar performance, he earned a Master's degree in Sonic Arts, which focused on the development of a new musical interface for the extraction of body movements in the form of biosignals to be used to expand the player's control space. As a PhD fellow at the RITMO Centre for Interdisciplinary Studies in Rhythm, Time and Motion at the University of Oslo, he is expanding his research on how to define the relationship between the dynamics of motion and sound in digital musical instruments.
