Peter Androsch is a sound artist: shaping sound, understanding sound, holding onto sound. Sound is not just sound rather sound waves. 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.

Peter Androsch received the AUSTRIAN STATE PRIZE FOR MUSIC 2023. // THE WET COAT It’s only my second movie, and then it’s already a B-movie. On the 200th birthday of Bruckner – actually a BB movie, because it’s about the relationship between Anton Bruckner and Ludwig Boltzmann, whose name is immortal in physics. The film lasts 24:05, is mainly in English and can be viewed or downloaded here: THE WET COAT on vimeo // KLANGWALD – Only accessible on foot, Anton Bruckner’s mysterious sound forest is hidden in a fairytale-like clearing in the Kürnberg Forest. Radical deceleration: all of Bruckner’s symphonies sound through stretching and repetition as a continuum over 272 times 24 hours, i.e. from 13.2. to 10.11.2024. Google Maps coordinates: 862J+P49, Wilhering – A project of the Upper Austrian KulturEXPO Anton Bruckner 2024 // The GUSEN CONVOLUTE, an independent artistic research project by Peter Androsch and his team on the creation of songs composed in the Gusen concentration camp, primarily by Polish composers, will run until 2026.


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.



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”.

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.
