Hans Tutschku

Hans Tutschku (Weimar, Germany, 1966) began to study music at an early age. In 1982 he joined the Ensemble für Intuitive Musik Weimar, playing synthesizer and live electronics. He studied electroacoustic composition in Dresden, and accompanied Karlheinz Stockhausen on several concert tours during 1989-91 for the purpose of studying sound diffusion. In 1991-92 he took part in the international yearlong course in sonology at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague, working primarily in the field of digital sound processing. With the Ensemble für Intuitive Musik Weimar he has realized several multimedia productions, conceiving projected images and choreography for dance as well as the music. Together they have given numerous concerts in Europe, Latin America and Asia. Hans Tutschku has composed instrumental works, works for tape, works for musicians and electronics, and music for theatre, film and ballet (including several collaborations with the German choreographer Joachim Schlömer). In 1989, together with Michael von Hintzenstern, he set up the Klang Projekte Weimar, a foundation for contemporary music, which includes an annual festival as well as a concert series. He was selected to attend the yearlong composition course at IRCAM (in Paris) in 1994. He taught at the Liszt Conservatory in Weimar in 1995-6 as professor of electroacoustic composition and also set up a studio. He attended the 1996 Royaumont composition workshop with Klaus Huber and Brian Ferneyhough. Since 1997 he has been teaching at IRCAM, and has given master classes at the University of São Paulo, the University of Singapore and the Music Academy in Budapest.
