Pia Palme was born in Vienna and is a composer, musician and experimentalist. Her works open up fields between composition and improvisation, between acoustic and electronic music and range in size from solo pieces to operas. She sees her precise and well-conceived compositional concepts as political scores that draw on the conditions of modern times. Since October 2011 Pia Palme has been doing research for her dissertation entitled “Composing the Noise of Mind” to earn her doctorate in composition at the University of Huddersfield. She has received several commissions to write compositions that were performed at the Klangspuren Festival and Wien modern, for instance.
