Peter Androsch is active not only as a composer, but also as a musician, an artist with space and writing, a researcher, a writer, and as an international lecturer. His extensive work is shown here within the four categories of composing, playing, phonography and the Hörstadt.

Androsch is a philosopher and a jack of all trades at the same time, a conceptual carnival artist. He knows his way around silence.

Composing

Ever since the 1980s composing has played a central part in the creative work of Peter Androsch. Particularly in the area of musical theatre his particular fortitude in artistic creation can be seen, a strength that combines theatre, sound, and space: “Peter Androsch composes in the same way that Man Ray created his first Dada piece”, says Wolfgang Schlag in the Pasticcio in the cultural program of OE1 in 2007.

Playing

After extensive touring in his younger days (tours through Austria, East- and West Germany, Switzerland, Spain, Yugoslavia, Hungary, Belgium, Italy, Portugal, USA, and Africa) actively playing has become an integral part in Peter Androsch’s work once again. Together with his colleagues Didi Bruckmayr and Bernd Preinfalk he regularly plays contemporary chamber music as “Dr. Didi”.

Phonography

Peter Androsch has dubbed his sound-writings Phonographies. What originally began as the creation of more or less dense landscapes of writing by layering his own musical manuscripts, has developed into creating sound-paintings based on the musical scores, manuscripts, sketches, and typescripts of other artists.

Hörstadt

The concept for the Hörstadt was developed in 2006 as a central piece in the musical department of the cultural capital of Europe of 2009 in Linz, of which Peter Androsch was the head. It was conceived as a laboratory for acoustics, space, and society, and so the Hörstadt was able to develop new methods such as  anthropological acoustics and inclusive acoustics. Its central concern is designing the acoustic surroundings as humanely as possible.
