Johannes Kreidler (musician)
From 2000 to 2006 Kreidler studied composition with Mathias Spahlinger , electronic music with Orm Finnendahl and Mesias Maiguashca, and music theory with Eckehard Kiem at the Freiburg University of Music and at the Institute for Sonology ( computer music ) of the Koninklijk Conservatorium The Hague . He also studied philosophy and art history at the Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg .
He worked as a lecturer at the University of Music and Theater in Rostock , the Detmold Academy of Music and the Academy of Music and Theater in Hanover . Since 2019 he has been teaching as a professor for composition and music theory at the Basel Music Academy.
In September 2008, his product placements campaign , with which he contributed to the discussion about copyright law and the height of creativity in music, received wide press coverage. In a 33-second piece of music, he processed 70,200 quotations from other works, all of which he registered individually with GEMA . For this purpose, accompanied by numerous press representatives, he drove to the GEMA General Directorate in Berlin in a small truck full of completed applications. The work is deliberately located in a legal gray area, which has been greatly enlarged by digital technologies, so that it has so far been impossible to finally clarify the case.
In December 2008, he again attracted attention through the Call Wolfgang campaign , in which he had two computers telephone each other via VoIP and automatically generated terrorist agreements that could be relevant for the BKA . With the action he turned against the intentions of the federal government to operate data retention on a larger scale .
In January 2009, Kreidler published the video Charts Music , in which he used the stock prices of various companies to derive pitches from them. In addition to share prices, some statistics were also used, for example the number of US soldiers killed in Iraq. This piece also alludes to the border areas of copyright law by listing the respective companies in the credits as composers and copyright holders instead of Kreidler himself. The work was later shown in the exhibition A House full of Music at Mathildenhöhe in Darmstadt.
In October 2009 he announced that he was hiring composers from low-wage countries for a commissioned composition for the Klangwerkstatt Berlin festival in order to plagiarize his own music. For much less money than Kreidler himself received for the commission, he had pieces made for concerts in China and India. According to their own information, the action with the title Foreign Work serves to draw attention to the topics of exploitation and authorship.
Kreidler's orchestral work Minusbolero , which premiered in Stuttgart in 2015, consists of Maurice Ravel's Boléro , whereby Kreidler has removed all melodic elements from the score; so you can only hear the accompaniment. Kreidler says that it represents the inversion of the orchestra hierarchy, since almost only the second consoles played in his piece.
Kreidler mostly works with algorithmic composition methods and also uses media such as video and performance. His artistic vision is the concept of music attributed. With his sometimes provocative works and writings, he has sparked controversies, which have also appeared in book form and which he, in turn, processed through music theater.
