New Concept Pieces realised by the concept authors together with musicians of the PPCM-Ensemble

With Peter Ablinger one of the most profiled composers is tutoring at the impuls Academy. His artistic work is diverse. It includes the visual, installations, texts, conceptual, performative and situational works – and hereby and beyond of course music, including a lot of music on music. It involves research and statements - philosophical, perceptual-psychological, last, but least political ones. It questions common topoi, conventions, role attributions. And it aims at fundamental questions: what is hearing, what is sound, what is music, what is time and space, what is the here and now?


Together with Dimitrios Polisoidis, member of Klangforum Wien and in charge of the PPCM-program* at the Kunstuniversität Graz, Peter Ablinger is leading and coaching the Special Program KonzeptMusik at the impuls Academy this year – with its results being presented now. The presentation hereby holds several selected concepts handed in by impuls Academy participants, having been triggered by a Call for Scores for this Special Workshop. The final realisation of the work will result from a balanced collaboration between the PPCM-instrumentalists and the concept authors.
