SITUATE / 7 to 22 August 2016
Johannes Kreidler (1980) has been studying composition, electronic music and music theory from 2000 to 2006 in Freiburg (Germany) and The Hague (Netherlands). Currently he is teaching composition and music theory at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater Hamburg.
Berlin-based composer Johannes Kreidler works in the mode of ‘expanded composition’. His compositions, while musical, are not about music – but rather the systems, economies, and regimes of value that structure music’s place in our world. Pursuing this music/not music approach Kreidler has become a leading figure in ‘conceptualism’, an approach at the intersection of composition and conceptual art. Johannes Kreidler is a guest of RMIT University iAIR and Liquid Architecture supported by the Goethe-Institute.
