Johannes Maria STAUD
An Austrian composer born August 17, 1974 in Innsbrück (Austria).
Johannes Maria Staud studied composition at the Musikhochschule in Vienna and in Berlin, with Michael Jarrell and Hanspeter Kyburz. He trained in electroacoustic composition with Dieter Kaufmann before becoming acquainted with the compositional techniques of Brian Ferneyhough in his masterclasses. He also followed a course in philosophy and musicology.
Johannes Maria Staud draws his inspiration principally from literature (Hans Arps, Durs Grüben, Charles Baudelaire, Friedrich Nietzsche, etc.) and the visual arts. He composes works that are virtuosic, showing both great attention to minutiae and precision in orchestration, with a care for detail and an acute sense of form.

A German composer born September 23, 1964 in Dassau (Germany).
Annette Schlünz studied composition at the Musikhochschule in Dresden (1983-1987) and at the University of Berlin (1988-1991). Often finding inspiration in literature and poetry, she develops material that is limited at first, and she renounces any outbursts of virtuosity. She works on time, on its dilatation and contraction in a sound continuum, yet also on the modes of instrumental and vocal play, finding unusual ways of applying sounds, and tone-colours seemingly unrelated to the instrument in question.
