Martin Hiendl (b. 1986 in Berlin) is a composer and performer. His work takes place in concert formats as well as performances, installations and inter-disciplinary spaces with instruments mostly in close interplay with electronics. Duration and installative temporality are an important aspect of his work in order to work against the synchronisation of worlds of aesthetic experience and to explore the performativity of the space-time-body relationship in music. He has been in close collaborations for many years with various artists including writer Göksu Kunak, video artist Monica Duncan, stage designer Claudia Doderer, choreographer Julian Weber and ensembles such as the Zafraan Ensemble, the International Contemporary Ensemble or the Ensemble KNM Berlin. Martin Hiendl studied Composition in Frankfurt am Main with Beat Furrer and in San Diego with Roger Reynolds. He is currently working on his doctoral thesis at Columbia University New York with George E. Lewis. His installation opera Paradise was premièred at the 2016 Steirischer Herbst festival and was the inaugural winner of the Johann-Joseph Fux Opera Composition Competition.
