  • About Julia

    I'm an avant-garde violinist, artistic director, composer, and visual artist living and working in North Beach in San Francisco. I cross over between the classical and the very computational worlds, drawing from architecture, art, video, electro-acoustic composition, electronic music, science, nature, generative art, and indie music to create experiential art works and performances.

    Enjoy!
    - Julia

    PRISM Series – Gareth Loy & Julia Ogrydziak: “Blood From a Stone”
    Center for New Music, San Francisco


    In September of 2017, I will be performing the revival version of seminal 80s composition Blood from a Stone by Gareth Loy for electronic violin and interactive computer. As part of the PRISM series I am curating at the Center for New Music, we will also talk about the history of interactive computer music in San Francisco, Stanford, and UC Santa Cruz through Gareth’s personal experiences from the 80s to today, the challenges of keeping interactive pieces alive, and the history of the piece itself.
