Klement, Katharina 




The composer, pianist and improvisor was born 1963 in Graz, Austria.
She studied piano, composition and electroacoustic music at the Vienna Music University, she also did private studies in dance improvisation and sculpture.

Her work is based both on electronic and instrumental music, as well as notated and improvised. A focal point lays on spatial conceptions, multichannel pieces in combination with instruments and/or voice, also explicitly on music for loudspeakers - „acousmatic music“. The interpenetration of instrumental and (live)-electronic access is the subject of many works. Also crossover projects in the areas music-text-video-performance and sound installtion are represented. A special interest lays on the piano and extended playing techniques for it. She is a founder and member of several ensembles for improvised and collective composed music.
