Andreas Pirchner (Stuttgart, 1977) is a musicologist, designer, and programmer engaged in contemporary audiovisual art forms involving intersections of art and science. He is particularly interested in theoretical and practical approaches towards generative and algorithmic music or design. 

In his scientific research, Pirchner investigates empirical methods and aesthetics of audiovisual art. He has published on contemporary electro-acoustic music, the history of film music, Xenakis' stochastic methods, and research of audience perception. He gave lectures about researching gamified audiovisual performances at conferences in New York and Kyoto. 

In his visual work, he is strongly focused on exploring generative, algorithmic, and data-driven forms of design. He is responsible for the visual communication of the Austrian Museums Association.
