Rupert Huber

musical director, composition, musician on stage/piano/live electronics | Vienna

Durch Einbeziehung des Raumes und der elektronischen bzw. psychologischen Projektion eines musikalischen bzw. klanglichen Inhalts in die Komposition hat Rupert Huber dimensional music als musikalisches Format entwickelt, das allen seinen musikalischen Werken zugrundeliegt. Werke dieses Formats wurden beispielsweise von Wiener Festwochen (private exile, 2004), Centre Pompidou (sonic process, 2002) und Ars Electronica (radiotopia, 2002) in Auftrag gegeben.

In der Folge konnte Huber seine Ideen auch angewandt umsetzen - Musik für Film (food design, Berggasse 19), tv (C.S.I. Miami, Sex and the city) und signations für den ORF (Ö1 Kunstradio) das 1994 gegründete Duo Tosca - Richard Dorfmeister und Rupert Huber- hat in den 16 Jahren seines Bestehens 5 CD-Alben und 7 Remix-Alben veröffentlicht, die weltweit über eine halbe Million Tonträger verkauft haben. In den letzten Jahren hat Tosca live-shows in den USA, Südamerika und Europa gespielt, darunter so prominente Festivals wie coachella in palm springs, oder das ars electronica festival.

In the world of electronic music Richard Dorfmeister has left countless traces. Since the mid 1990s,  the Vienna born artist, flute player, producer and DJ has released classic tracks and remixes with his co-partner Peter Kruder as Kruder and Dorfmeister. Records by Kruder and Dorfmeister such as the "G-Stoned EP" (on their own G-Stone Label, 1994), as well as the seminal "DJ Kicks" mix-compilation for K7! (1996), and the "K & D Sessions" remix compilation (1998) are considered timeless masterpieces.

amateur  choir | Judenburg

Hervorgegangen aus einem Projekt der Musikschule Judenburg die Chorszene der Region zu beleben und die Menschen wieder vermehrt zum Singen zu bewegen, gibt es die Gesangsfabrik Judenburg seit September 2013. An die 50 Hobby-SängerInnen haben sich dabei zu einem der größten Chöre im Bezirk formiert, um ihrer Leidenschaft dem Singen zu frönen. Gesungen wird quer durch den 'modernen' Gemüsegarten, sodass sich von Stücken der 'Real Group' und Gospels der 'Brooklyn Tabernacle Singers' noch so einiges mehr aus der Sparte Pop, Rock, Gospel im Repertoire des mittlerweile als Verein agierenden Chors befindet. Geleitet wird der Chor, der sich aus Mitgliedern aller Alters- und Berufsschichten zusammensetzt, von Joanne Kocher, der an der örtlichen Musikschule tätigen Lehrerin für Stimmbildung & Popular-Gesang.
