Christoph Herndler is considered one of the most prominent graphic designers in domestic contemporary music. Born in 1964 in Upper Austria, for the presentation of his musical ideas he primarily uses a notation method that is not typical and was used in earlier decades in this country by exponents such as Anestis Logothetis and Roman Haubenstock- Ramati.
His work includes graphic and intermedia scores , which can also be realized in extra-musical representations, as well as notation objects, music installations, video works and public art.
