The duo Die Audiotapete was formed by Barbara Kaiser und Ernst Reitermaier in 2005 to explore our acoustic surroundings by means of art and use these sounds in radio programmes, sound installations, DJ sets and live performances. Ernst Reitermaier studied philosophy, music and cultural management in Vienna, and works as a musician and music co-ordinator. He is a member of the Institute for Transacoustic Research, the Reheat festival team, and organises various projects in the field of experimental music. Barbara Kaiser studied transmedia art in Vienna and works as an artist, curator and musician. Like Reitermaier, she is one of the founding members of the Vegetable Orchestra. She is involved in the Radia network, curates exhibitions and creates sound and video works.
