Clemens von Reusner, born in 1957, is a composer and sound artist. At the center of not only his electroacoustic music, but also his radio plays are sounds that are generated electronically and those discovered at particular places. The latter are mostly derived from atypical situations, such as the soundscape of an industrial port, places with special technical equipment or nocturnal soundscapes of a large city. In the late 1980s he developed the KANDINSKY MUSIC PAINTER music software.
He has been commissioned to compose works for radio and his works have been frequently performed in Asia, Europe and North and South America. He has been invited to the World New Music Days in Zagreb in 2011 and in Vancouver in 2017.
Clemens von Reusner is a member of the German Composers’ Association (Deutscher Komponistenverband, DKV) and the Society for New Music (Gesellschaft für Neue Musik, GNM), as well as of the German Society for Electroacoustic Music (Deutsche Gesellschaft für elektroakustische Musik, DEGEM). He has also worked as a curator and served as a jury member at international electroacoustic music festivals.
