ERNSTALBRECHT STIEBLER is a composer of minimalist and reductionist contemporary music. Having attended the Darmstadt International Summer Courses for New Music from 1958 onwards, Stiebler decided in 1963 to leave serial music behind and instead opt for his own reductionist style built on minimalist structures and repetitions, not in any way related to the so-called Minimal Music but rather influenced by Minimalism in visual art. In terms of composers of his time, the closest stylistic relationship that could be drawn is to Morton Feldman. Stiebler's approach is best summarized in his own words: "Music is too important to burden it with emotions."

Mr. Stiebler also served as director of new music for Hessischer Rundfunk from 1969-95 and founded the concert series Forum Neue Musik there in 1989. He co-produced numerous CDs for Hessischer Rundfunk in collaboration with the Hat Hut label, including the series devoted to the New York School (John Cage, Morton Feldman and Christian Wolff). In addition, he has written numerous essays for Musik-Konzepte, MusikTexte, and other music journals, as well as booklet notes for the Montaigne Auvidis CD of Words and Music by Morton Feldman.

TILMAN KANITZ studied music at the Lübeck, Freiburg and Cologne Universities and finished his studies at USC in Los Angeles. From 2015 to 2018 he was the Artistic Director of the Berlin music theater group Solistenensemble Kaleidoskop. In his productions, Tilman Kanitz builds sound collages from classical and experimental music, collaborating with musicians, dancers and performers. He builds his room settings as light spaces and installations, presented in theater halls as well as in museums, galleries and urban off-spaces.

In recent time he collaborated with the choreographers Laurent Chétouane and Lyllie Rouvière, the composers Sebastian Claren and Chiyoko Szlavnics, the theatre directors Susanne Kennedy and Ludger Engels, the fashion designer Pam Hogg, the artist Dirk Bell and others.
