Bernd Asmus

Bernd Asmus, born in Marburg/Lahn (Germany), has studied classical guitar, music theory and composition (with Klaus Huber) in Essen and Freiburg. He has attended composition courses in Darmstadt and in Dartington.

He has taught at the Musikhochschule of Freiburg, Karlsruhe and (since 2001) Stuttgart. He has also taught composition in music institutions all-over south-east Asia (Medan, Jakarta, Manila, Hanoi, Bangkok). His music articles have been published by the review Musik & Ästhetik.

He has received composition prizes at competitions in Graz (for MALAIISCHE LIEBESLIEDER) and in Guéret (for KNELL).

As a composer, he prefers the intimate climate of chamber music formations. He favours rarely used instruments as equal chamber music partners (singing saw, thunder sheet...) and enjoys working with ethnic instruments (biwa, ethnic percussion...). He has created several works in collaboration with dance groups. His musical interests for the future are microtonal convolutions, ethnic musical contexts and areas which are hopefully still to come as a surprise.
