Gerhard Krammer (b. 1965 in Oberwart, Austria) grew up in Jabing. In 1979, he studied organ at the Institute of Oberschutzen of the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz, Austria, and proceeded to study music theory and German literature at the University of Graz (completing a diploma thesis on Douze Notations by Pierre Boulez). He is currently teaching music theory at the Institute of Oberschutzen. Gerhard Krammer has composed pieces for solo, chamber, and orchestral ensembles, and for two decades has explored electronic and computer-based composition, including several pieces for solo electronics. Recently, he developed “sound-frames,” wherein he combines acoustic and electronic sounds. He also works on interdisciplinary projects with painters, actors, dancers, and light/video performers. His pieces have been performed in Austria, Germany, Italy, Belgium, France, Poland, Italy, Slovakia, and the Philippines.
