Peter Ablinger





Peter Ablinger (b. 1959 in Austria) completed his studies in composition with Gösta Neuwirth and Roman Haubenstock-Ramati in Graz and Vienna. He has lived in Berlin since 1982, where he has initiated and conducted numerous festivals and concerts. Peter Ablinger is one of few artists today who uses noise without any kind of symbolism - not as a signifier for chaos, energy, entropy, disorder, or uproar; not for opposing something, or being disobedient or destructive. As in all these cases of music deliberately involving noise, noise is the case, but for Ablinger it is noise alone. Peter Ablinger has also come a long way in questioning the nature of sound, time, and space (the components usually thought central to music), and his findings have jeopardized and made dubious conventions usually thought irrefutable. These insights pertain to repetition and monotony, reduction and redundancy, density and entropy.
