Mitterer is much in demand as a composer of operas, concertos, film scores, and theatre music (including music for the Salzburg Festival’s Jedermann), for which he has been commissioned by renowned orchestras, ensembles, and opera houses around the world. Here the two-time recipient of the Austrian Film Music Award is releasing terrific “temp tracks”, which is music that serves as the preliminary soundtrack to film sequences until the ‘proper’ music arrives. Wolfgang Mitterer studied organ, composition and electroacoustics in Vienna and Stockholm. He is not only one of the Austrian specialists for electronics as well as being equally brilliant on the keyboard and on the slide controls, but is also one of the most innovative composers. His work oscillates between composition and open form. Apart from music for organ and orchestra, a piano concerto and an opera he has produced electronic pieces, conceptualized sound installations, and engaged in collective improvisation with diverse groups, developing a language of extremes, tension and complexity. The pleasure he takes in experimenting leads him to combine contrasting elements in the creation of unpredictable musical events. In one major composition, for instance, he juxtaposes musical bands and children’s choirs with specialized instrumentalists and singers, while filling the hall with surround sound created by live electronics. But his work transcends the merely spectacular, precisely because of his musical presence and the high – deeply moving – intensity and complexity of his compositions.
