Matthias Kranebitter ///
Matthias Kranebitter, born 1980 in Vienna, studied composition, electro-acoustic music, film and media composition as well as piano at the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna, at the Conservatory van Amsterdam and the University of Graz.
His music is characterized by aspects of our media society, a dense accumulation and mash-up from everyday life’s trash sounds to a flittering-colourful and hyper-heterogenic sound flood, a comic-like, grotesque distortion of clichéd musical gestures with an ironic ambivalence, aiming for an Art Brut in music.
He is founder of the ensemble Black Page Orchestra as well as one of the initiators of UNSAFE+SOUNDS FESTIVAL - antidisciplinary Festival / Media Arts Music in Vienna.
For 2015 he was awarded the Berlin Scholarship and invited to the Akademie der Künste Berlin.
