Network is his favourite word. The Tyrollean composer Günther Zechberger uses it frequently and consciously. He is convinced that without networks, many of his projects would never have been realised. It's also part of the name of an association he founded together with Alexander Zimmerman in 2009: "Gegen:Klang - Neue Musik und Netzwerke". This groups goal is to make music of the 20th and 21st century perceptible, audible, and visible in an imaginative way. Internationalism, interdisciplinary cooperation from musicians, architects, and writers, mobility and modern forms of communication or some of the defining aspects of these projects. Their most prominent to date has been "Drau/Drava - KlangMobil".

Description of Style

Sound compositions instead of tone pitch compositions - the interest lies less in the absolute level of the acoustic material, but rather in the color, direction, response to space, mobility - response of the room on the material. Zechberger maintains a preference for complex structures in the tension between strictly organized order and chaos. The arc of his compositional output ranges from music for solo instruments, chamber music, choral and orchestral works to computer compositions, installations and action music.
