The Institute for Transacoustic Research (iftaf) was founded in 1998 to define and research transacoustics. iftaf is a platform for the art and science of ear training and auditory phenomenology. It explores the borders between acoustics and their tangential realms: science and art, everyday life and research, sound and noise, tone and light, acoustic and other modes of perception. By permanently changing the auditory angle and continual reinterpretation of the manner of hearing, the borders of the acoustic and the audible can be expanded beyond the threshold of perception. Reacquiring the capacity of listening (for the sake of listening) breaks open socially-induced functional deafness and expands the acoustic horizon.
Current members a.o. Ernst Reitermaier, Matthias Meinharter, Joerg Piringer, Nikolaus Gansterer.
