Welcome to the Homepage of Composer and Music Theorist Adrian Kleinlosen.


03/21/2024: I am looking forward to giving a talk in Vienna in April. Here is the announcement: https://www.mdw.ac.at/1656/?v=3028153&g=59931
Incidentally, I'm currently working on a string quartet (entitled "Stufen"): 15 systems per player (I wonder if that's enough?), 60 pages in DIN A1 format. Stay tuned! It should be ready by the end of the year.

06/26/2023: Do not confuse the one year of silence at this point with one year of inaction!

To the first: I have recently finished the score to my electroacoustic work "mv2:k". I have now decided to publish it via the Research Catalogue. It can be viewed via the following link: https://www.researchcatalogue.net/profile/show-exposition?exposition=2218531
Second: I wrote. Among other things, a review that will be published in the July issue of Musik & Ästhetik (note the menu item "Words" on this page). And a text on the composer Horacio Vaggione, to be published in October. (More details at a later date, also under "Words").
Third: A new piece for bass clarinet and live electronics is ready since the beginning of the year. It is dedicated to the Gewandhaus bass clarinettist Volker Hemken, who will give the premiere, about which I will provide information here in due course.
To the fourth: Work now begins on a large-scale orchestral work. Here I will work for the first time with the superimposition of different tempi. (LilyPond makes it possible!) But this might take some time... More about this at a later time.

06/21/2022: You can listen to my new electronic piece »mv2:k« on Soundcloud: 


It is recommended to listen with headphones. The material of the piece consists solely of voice recordings of the Biblical Creation Story, read by seven people in seven different languages: Nina Barzegar (Farsi), Bianca Bongers (Dutch), Sean Keenan (English), Adrian Kleinlosen (German), Asaf Ophir (Hebrew), Jacques Zafra (Spanish), Rita Zhang (Chinese).
The piece was composed with OpenMusic, Csound, EmissionControl2, ProTools, dearVR PRO, and various other plugins.

03/15/2022: My dissertation on the topic of musical morphology has been published by Wolke Verlag:  https://www.wolke-verlag.de/musikbuecher/adrian-kleinlosen-morphologie-in-der-musik/
