PETER PICHLER from Munich is one of the few musicians today, who masters the Trautonium or Mixture-Trautonium. Due to his classical musical education he is able to use this fore-farther of the synthesizer in various musical genres.
PICHLER plays the contemporary literature by Paul Hindemith, Harald Genzmer and others. Many works have been composed especially for this instrument. As it is extremely complex this music is only playable with Trautonium.
Very special performances can be experienced with the Trautonium at live film soundtrack events, as this instrument can generate innumerable special sound effects as well as melody. E.g. "Salomé" by Charles Bryant (1923); "The Birds" by Alfred Hitchcock (1963); "A Voyage to the Moon" by Manfred Durniok (1975).
For modern art installations Peter Pichler also uses the Trautonium in cooperation with other artistic genres such as video art, graphic or dance. Pichler also accompanies live with the Trautonium opening events of exhibitions or other events that ask for somewhat extraordinary music. (We are very happy to develop an individual concept for your event.)
