Volkmar Klien y Weiping Lin : Volkmar está comprometido con extender las prácticas tradicionales de composición, producción y escucha lejos de los formatos de música de concierto establecidos. Trabaja en temas vinculados a lo audible e inaudible transitando por la diversidad de vínculos entre distintos modos de percepción, las esferas de representación y los roles que juegan en la generación de significado.Wei-Ping es Concertino asociado de la Orquesta de la Radio de Viena. Ha interpretado numerosos estrenos de música contemporánea incluyendo trabajos escritos para ella.


Growing up in Vienna Volkmar Klien (*1971, hollabrunn) spent his childhood engulfed in the city's rich musical life with all its glorious traditions and engrained rituals. Working from this background Volkmar Klien today strives to extend traditional practices of composing, producing and listening far beyond the established settings of concert music. He works in various areas of the audible and occasionally inaudible arts navigating the manifold links in-between the different modes of human perception, the spheres of presentation and the roles these play in the communal generation of meaning.


His works have been widely recognized, exhibited, performed and presented. he has received commissions from institutions truly varied in nature. For the Volksoper Wien (Vienna, Austria) he composed music to a full evening ballet, the Curtis R. Priem Experimental Media & Performing Arts Center (EMPAC, Troy, NY) invited him to produce multi-channel electronic sound works and for Transitio MX (Mexico City) he produced a mixed media installation acoustically surveying landscapes. In his installation 'aural codes', funded by the Arts Council England, he turned the radio sphere over London into his exhibition space inviting residents to tune in and also interact.


Throughout his career he has collaborated with his choreographer brother Michael on numerous performative projects exploring relationships between sound, bodily movement and human communication. Works stemming from this ongoing collaboration have been produced and presented at the ZKM Karlsruhe, Ballet Frankfurt, the Hayward Gallery London, and - most recently - by the ps122 (NY).


Volkmar Klien's work has been awarded numerous prizes and awards, amongst these an Honorary Mention at the Prix Ars Electronica, the State Scholarship for Composition of the Republic of Austria, the Max Brand Prize for Electronic Music, the Scholarship of the Vienna Symphonic Orchestra and the Gustav Mahler Prize for Composition.


In his artistic work Volkmar Klien can draw on experience gained in academic research. Having received a PhD in electroacoustic composition from City University London he has held research positions at the Royal College of Arts in London, the Austrian Research Institute for Artificial Intelligence (OFAI) and the University for Music and Performing Arts Vienna, where he currently holds the position of senior lecturer in electronic music and media.


Weiping Lin is an Associate Concertmaster (Stimmführerin 1.Violinen) of the Austrian Broadcasting Corporation Radio Symphony Orchestra Vienna (RSO-Wien).


She is a well-respected violinist for contemporary music in Austria. Not only has Wei-Ping Lin performed numerous premieres, including several new works dedicated to her, she has premiered works by the composers Luna Alcalay, Christoph Herndler, Volkmar Klien, Gerd Kühr and Ming Wang.


As a chamber musician and soloist Wei-Ping Lin has performed numerous concerts in countries throughout Europe and Asia, playing with ensembles such as Ensemble Modern, die reihe, Ensemble 20.Jahrhundert and Zur Eisernen Zeit.


Wei-Ping Lin won several national violin competitions in her native country Taiwan. She moved to Austria at the age of fifteen to continue her music studies at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna with Josef Sivo, Dora Schwarzberg and Yair Kless.


In the following years Wei-Ping Lin received scholarships from the Alban Berg Foundation Vienna; the Aspen, and the Schleswig-Holstein, Music Festival; as well as the Sommerakademie Salzburg. These scholarships allowed her to attend master classes with violinists such as Zakhar Bron, Klara Flieder, Valery Klimov, Philippe Hirschhorn, Igor Oistrach, Igor Ozim, Gerhard Schulz, Abram Shtern and Edward Zienkowski. These studies lead to prizes at international violin competitions e.g. the Lipinski-Wieniawski in Poland or the Johannes Brahms in Austria.
