Roisz has been intensively working with video and sound media since the end of the 1990s. The focus of her work lies in experimenting with the combinations of auditory and visual stimuli. Her work is all about the interaction between sound and image, the interchangeability or unity of image and sound producing electromagnetic signals in the generating machines. The implementation of these experiments usually occurs in the form of live performances in collaboration with musicians from the areas of experimental electronic music and noise, as well as composed new and old music.

 

Another field of work is the production of single-screen works for films. Recently, music production has become an increasingly important part of her work.
