CLEMENS PICHLER musician / composer / programmer / concept developer / curator

is a sound artist & composer based in Berlin/Germany. He started his musical studies as a child in the field of jazz, playing guitar and bass. Becoming a fully trained bass-player he played in several projects in Austria and Germany.
In order to finance his studies in philosophy at the university of Vienna/Austria he worked for film productions and so it happened – somehow incidentally – that he began to work as a composer for moving images.
While he produced several soundtracks and 7 long-player with different projects until 2009 his interest in experimental and conceptual music began to grow. 2009 he conceived, organized and curated "Radiospotting" – an international exhibition for sound art in public space. Through 13 short-ranged radio stations the visitors were able to listen to the works best on bike equiped with a portable radio.
Together with Enrique Tomás he founded a laptop-orchestra playing Cornelius Cardews "Treatise" in 2011. Enrique and Clemens began to support the local scene for experimental music and started to book artists for the "soundscapes" series in Linz. During the "Ars Electronica" Festival they organized and produced "Sonorous Horreum" – a Multichannel-Exhibition.
In 2012 he moved to Berlin but still has strong links to Austria – like doing compostions for theatre plays: "Clockwork Orange", "Heiße Sohlen", "Magic Afternoon", "Plötzlich Monster" and "Nothing" @Landesthater Linz
Since 2010 he is working on his own experimental musical instruments. PureData as the chosen software becomes his everyday tool.
