Angela Brennecke is Professor of „Audio and Interactive Media Technologies/ Directing Audio Processing“ in the Master's program „Creative Technologies“ at the Film University Babelsberg KONRAD WOLF. Angela graduated as an Engineer in Computational Visualistics (Dipl.-Ing.) in 2004 and completed her doctoral degree program in Computer Graphics (Dr.-Ing.) in 2009. Due to her lifelong passion for music, thereafter she worked as a software developer and technical project manager for „Native Instruments GmbH“ in Berlin from 2009 to 2014. In 2015, Angela took a break from business to pursue personal artistic goals as well as to set new goals in her professional career. The following year, she joined the „Innovation Projects“ team of the German public broadcaster „Rundfunk Berlin-Brandenburg“ as project engineer and participated in several research proposals for H2020 before becoming professor of Film University in August 2017. Her research interests focus on audio-visual mood representation as well as interactions with sound through visuals.
