Austrian double bassist and sound artist Bernd Klug, based in New York and Vienna,works in the dynamic field of contemporary music with a focus on improvisation. His solo work focuses on the world inside the double bass: the bow, the body, and room frequencies lay the groundwork for a radical reduction of both the composer-performer’s role and the traditional musical narrative.
His solo double bass concerts "a cupreous donkey" uses electronic feedback and spectral playing techniques as a means for self-reflection and seeks parallels to personal emotional states and human communication in acoustic phenomena.
In his recent sound installations "Leave the Bass Alone", Klug takes this concept a step further and uses modular concepts to investigate sound as sculpture and content to design social spaces. He creates an autonomous auditory cosmos where basses and other frequencies evolve into their own music as a consequence of interacting with spaces and exhibition visitors.
Klug is also a member of the Viennese improvisation collective “snim”. Together with New Yorker cellist Meaghan Burke, he is an organizer of the Transit Festival, which provides a platform for connecting improvised music with different musical genres, audiences, places and countries.
Additionally, Bernd Klug was recently selected for the long-term sponsorship programm „The New Austrian Sound of Music“ for young musicians run by the Austrian Federal Ministry for European and International Affairs (BMeiA) for the 2014/15 biennium.
