Composer – Musicologist – Music Editor


Art


In order to create an individual and independent sound experience I use a balanced but forward-looking musical language. In my compositions I am searching for unusual harmonic structures that are not subject to any cliché, but adapt to the particular context in an organic way.

Research


Dealing with scientific sources of bygone days and the opportunity to gain new insights – exploring something previously unknown – seems important and meaningful to me. I mainly deal with topics in the fields of historical and systematical musicology.

Craft


In my opinion, the two mentioned components art and research provide the foundation for publishing. Working as a music editor for the music publisher Doblinger, I also benefit from the intense interaction with renowned composers on an artistic level.

„Meisterlich pulsieren die Klangfolgen, wie der ‚Heimat‘-Boden nach unzähligen Bomben.“ (zum Artikel)


„Schubert goss seinen Schmerz in Melodien-Kontraste, der 1993 geborene Wiener Komponist Philipp Manuel Gutmann vertraute seine Empörung heute, 200 Jahre später, dem Rhythmus an. Immer disharmonischer wird der Orchesterklang, schreiende Melodiefetzen nehmen Marschcharakter an; man fühlt sich an Strawinski und Schostakowitsch erinnert.“ (zum Artikel)


„Seine ‚Szenen für symphonisches Orchester‘ sind harmonisch und wuchtig, lassen Fanfaren toben und übernehmen Zitate aus Schuberts ‚Unvollendeter‘ als Beleg für propagandistisch-respektlosen Mißbrauch selbst großer Kunst.“ (zum Artikel)
