Alexander Schubert

Residence: Hamburg, Germany

Alexander Schubert studied bioinformatics and composition. Schubert’s interest explores cross-genre interfaces between acoustic and electronic music, and combining different musical styles (like hardcore, free jazz, popular electronic music, techno) with contemporary classical concepts. Schubert has participated in his youth and early career in these various genres both in groups and as a solo artist. Furthermore, performance pieces are a major focus in his work. The use of the body in electronic music and the transportation of additional content through gestures are key features in his pieces, which aim to empower the performer and achieve a maximum of energy. This is done both through the use of sensors and visual media. Apart from working as a composer and solo musician, Schubert is also a founding member of ensembles such as Decoder. Since 2011, he teaches live electronics at the Musikhochschule Lübeck. His works have been performed more than 400 times in the last few years by numerous ensembles in over 25 countries.
