From Quellgeister #3

Stefan Fraunberger is a composer and sound performer with a distinct interest in transformation. Engaging in an electroacoustic dialogue with unconventional instruments such as dulcimers or decaying baroque church organs, his music reshapes the liminal conditions of culture and perception, while evoking images of sonic ambiguity. He has previously lived and worked in cities such as Aleppo, Sana’a, London, Tehran, Sibiu, Benares, Brussels and Istanbul, and he is now based in Vienna.
