Profile:
Born in Vienna, Austria. A musician of mainly the clarinet and computer, he wanders between electropop, improvisation and "new music". He is occasionally a soloist though prefers to be part of a collective or working group. Kurzmann has performed on every continent but Australia.

Owns and runs the label Charhizma (right spelling charhizma with "c" instead of "C"), which currently functions as a platform to present musicians from around the world in various live settings. Under that program, he organizes various events in the music- and media-genres. Kurzmann also works as a sound engineer, mixes and masters audio: mainly for releases on charihizma.

A conscientious objector of military and civil service, he currently lives in Vienna and Buenos Aires.
