Bernhard Gál

Austrian artist, composer and musicologist Bernhard Gál is equally at home within the domains of contemporary music, installation art and media art. He has created sound installations and intermedia art projects, combining sound, light, objects, spatial concepts and video projections into intense and often site-specific, multidimensional art works. He also composes music for acoustic instruments and electro-acoustic music, as well as performing live as a (laptop) musician. Gál runs the record label Gromoga Records and is director of the Austrian art organization ‘sp ce’. Together with Belma Beslic-Gál, he curates the Viennese Festival ‘shut up and listen!’. Between 2006 and 2007 he taught sound art at the University of Arts in Berlin. Between 2010-2013 Gál held a research position at the Paris Lodron University Salzburg, in conjunction with the interdisciplinary doctoral college ‘Art and the Public’. His work has been presented in concerts, sound installations, exhibitions, and radio portraits around the world, and made available on ca. 30 audio publications as well as various catalogue books and DVDs.
