Hauke Harder (DE)

German composer and experimental physicist. He studied physics at the University of Kiel and until 2000 devoted himself to the research of molecular physics. He began composing alongside his scientific work in the late 1980s. The main part of his work is devoted to the study of intervals in intonation. He is the author of sound installations and environments. His work is characterized by extreme minimalism and follows the work of American composers Morton Feldman and Alvin Lucier. He has worked with Lucier as an assistant since the 1990s. He will perform at JAMA as a speaker with a lecture on the creation of minimalist sound installations and will contribute to the premiere performance of Alvin Lucier’s I Am Sitting In A Room (1970).
