KATHARINA KLEMENT is an Austrian composer, pianist and improviser who has earned her reputation as an active personality in the pulse of the independent new music and experimental scene in Vienna and abroad. She has a wealth of instrumental and electronic compositions, installations, crossover projects combining music and text, language and video. Her exemplary willingness to push the boundaries of exploration often contain a systematic rigour which precedes the indirect result of her improvisations and compositions, being a true voice in the pursuit of independent art. Within this, her ability to create an atmosphere of openness for interpretation, where musical creativity can thrive, plays a central role in her creative ethos.  She has numerous awards, grants and commissions and is heavily involved in international performances and concerts, including Festival Kaleidophon Ulrichsberg, “Hörgänge” Wien, Tage für Neue Musik Zürich, Festival Hörgänge Wien, Porgy & Bess Wien, Radiokulturhaus Wien, Festival Inventionen Berlin, Hotel Pupik Schrattenberg, Festival Midi-Alternativa Moskau, Donaufestival Krems, Festival Wien Modern, Artoteca Milano, “Roulette” New York.
