Martin DASKE
Composition studies in the USA at Dartmouth College with Christian Wolff, in Krakow and at the Salzburg Mozarteum with Prof. Boguslaw Schaeffer.
Alongside his more traditional compositions (most recently: wohin: gegen: wenn (2016) for Ensemble, 4 Singers and Live-Elektronikl), Daske developed a form of three-dimensional notation (“Foliants“) and another in 2010 ("Notensetzen" (setting notes)). In 2002 he founded the duo “Die Klangschürfer“ (“The Sound Diggers”) with the vocal artist, Rainer Rudloff.
Daske has created countless Hörspiele and other works for radio (most recently: „Thinking of something I don't know“ (2015)), sound installations („Heim@klingt“ (2015)), childrens’ Hörspiele, music for theater and film (most recently: “Lunik“ (2006/2007) and "Je voudrais être légère" (Dance theater, Marseille 2008/2009)).
Since 1989 he has been one of the artistic directors of the concert series "Unerhörte Musik" in Berlin.
Daske has been running his own production studio since 1993: tribord studio.

CD productions with WERGO, edel-records, Hörverlag,, Hörcompany and Klangscheiben Verlag. Daske lives as a freelance author, director, producer and composer in Berlin and Venice.
