Paul Hertel had his first music lesson at the age of five (violin) and later learned how to play the guitar and the piano. Afterwards he was to receive a doctorate in dramatics, a diploma in composition, complete training in jazz harmony and electro-acoustics, and choir conducting. In 1982 he composed his first film music piece for an ORF/ZDF co-production: "Steinbichler Geschichten". Numerous compositions followed for ORF, SWR, ZDF, as well as for various international television and film production companies, for which he received international awards. His strength lies in being able to compose and produce music of almost any style and corresponding to any epoch. Since 1983 he has also worked as a musical director for theaters in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, and since 1988, he composes for music theater productions. Pieces of his contemporary music have been performed in Austria and also internationally in concerts and at important festivals such as: Huddersfield, Ville d'Avray, Aspekte Salzburg, Steirischer Herbst, Österreich Heute 1-5, Wien Modern, Cité Internationale des Arts, etc. He has been a member of the Independent Academy of Arts in Mannheim since 1988. In addition there have been publications and guest lectures at the Music University in Graz, etc.

 

Paul Hertel, 2006

 

The major points of his work include his work for numerous theatres in German-speaking countries, as well as his work for international film and TV companies. One of his film scores enabled him to become a member of the Freie Akademie der Künste Mannheim. Alongside his theatre, film and TV scores, Paul Hertel dedicates himself to 'free' composition - his works in the realm of contemporary "E-Musik" are frequently found in concert programs throughout the world, as well as during important international festivals.
