Peter Ablinger
According to Peter Ablinger “Sounds are not sounds! They are here to distract the intellect and to soothe the senses. Not once is hearing 'hearing': hearing is that which creates me.” The composer is, as Christian Scheib once put it, a “mystic of enlightenment” whose “calls and litanies are aimed at cognition”. At the same time, the composer who - after studying graphic arts - studied with Gösta Neuwirth and Roman Haubenstock-Ramati and since 1982 lives in Berlin, is also a skeptic who understands the cultural rules and (destructive) habits enforced by tradition. “So let us play further and say: sounds are here to hear (-but not to be heard. That's something else). And that hearing is here to be ceased (“Das Hören ist da um aufzuhören”). More I can't say.” (after Christian Baier, translated by Bill Dietz)
