PETER PICHLER from Munich is one of the few musicians today, who masters the Trautonium and Mixture-Trautonium.
Due to his classical musical education he is able to present this fore-father of the synthesizer live in various musical genres.
Peter 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. Also young composers re-discover the Trautonium and create works for the theater or new music (e.g. Manuela Kerer, Sebastian Vogel / Thomas Kürstner)
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. "Metropolis" (1927); "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. Peter 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.)
We are happy to inform you via e-mail of upcoming appearances / projects etc. if you like.
