Lutz Glandien Vita
East Berlin composer Lutz Glandien started working in music in the
1980's in the tradition of Experimental Song-Theatre. After studying classical
contemporary composition (1979 - 1983) he produced a range of works for
chamber ensembles, small groups, solo instruments and symphony orchestras.
Soon his drive to experiment led to a break with conventional musical
formats and he began to design and build his own musical instruments for
new compositions. At the same time he completed a number of internationally
acclaimed electro-acoustic compositions (Scenes from no Marriage,
ReR London 1994; Solo-CD, WERGO Mainz 1995). Also during this period
collaborations with Chris Cutler inspired him to work with improvisers
and musicians from an avant-garde rock background, both on recordings
and in performances (Domestic Stories, ReR London 1992; p53,
ReR London 1995).
In his lecture Lutz Glandien will give some insight into the wide range of his experimental musical activities and especially his work in the field of Sound Art.
