Volkmar Klien

Growing up in Vienna (Austria) 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 he today strives to extend traditional practices of composing, producing and listening far beyond the established settings of concert music. In his practice he navigates 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.
