VOLKMAR KLIEN: Haltung
Growing up in Vienna Volkmar Klien spent his childhood engulfed in the city's rich musical life with all its glorious traditions and engrained rituals. Working from this background Volkmar Klien today strives to extend traditional practices of composing, producing and listening far beyond the established settings of concert music. He works in various areas of the audible and occasionally inaudible arts navigating the manifold links in-between the different modes of human perception, the spheres of presentation and the roles these play in the communal generation of meaning. He is a professor of composition at the Anton Bruckner University in Linz.
SZELY: In A Split Second
Szely studied at the Institute for Electro-acustic and Electronic Music, Vienna. He works in the fields of sound-architecture and -installation, intermedia art, composition, radio art, sound environments for theatre, concerts and performances, and acoustic interventions in public space. He is a curator and responsible for the sound architecture and design at TONSPUR for a public space, Q21 MuseumsQuartier Wien (since 2003).
