Alexander Schubert studied computer science and biology in Leipzig focusing on neuroinformatics and cognitive science. During his studies he has worked as a musician and composer in a variety of different environments. In addition to this, Schubert worked for one year at the ZKM (Centre for Art and Media) in Karlsruhe at the Institute for Music and Acoustics. In 2007 he started a degree in multimedia composition at the Hamburg Academy for Music and Drama which he finished with a concert exam at the end of 2009.
Schubert’s research interest explores cross-genre interfaces between acoustic and electronic music. Musical pieces for audio tapes and the formal notation of compositions for live electronics belong just as much to his work as the design of software-setups and manipulation / design of instruments for an intuitive handling in an improvised context. A permanent focus of his work is the combination of notated and improvised music – both in aesthetics and structure.
Apart from working as a composer and solo musician Schubert is also playing in the ensembles Schubert-Kettlitz-Schwerdt, Trnn and Ember. Schubert curates the music festival contemporary electronic music in Leipzig and runs the publishing company Ahornfelder-Verlag for experimental audio and book releases.
