1954 (age 63)
The East Berlin composer Lutz Glandien (born 1954, in Öbisfelde, Germany) built his musical career on a background of Experimental Song Theatre tradition in the 80's.
After studying classical contemporary composition at the Berliner Musikhochschule and studied the master class of Georg Katzer between 1985 and 1987, he wrote pieces for chamber ensemble, small group, solo instruments and symphony orchestra. But his experimental nature soon required a break with conventional musical formats. He started to build musical instruments for his compositions and produced numerous internationally acclaimed electro-acoustic works. In the 1990's he shifted his ground again, establishing up his own studio and creating the soundtracks for over 60 radiophonic pieces, documentary films, video performances, exhibitions and sound installations. His acquaintance with Chris Cutler inspired him to work with improvisers and musicians coming from an avant-garde rock background. This found its expression in trio performances with Cutler and Michael Vogt, in the CD "Domestic Stories" and the P53 project. He has developed a concept about "Composing by Ear", and is currently engaged in studies of the tonal center in primat voices and of 'virtual' and 'recycled' music.
