Andreas Eduardo Frank is a composer, media artist and performer whose work explores the interface of real and virtual, of music, performance, video and theatre. His pieces are typically borne out of an overarching poetic idea, which is then contextualized in the music in a manner that may range from comical to nihilistic. He enjoys playing with absurdity and humor, trying to sparkle with what does not shine in a virtuoso manner, building castles in the air with his music, without fear of tearing them down again, deriving from their debris a genuine notion of music which courageously flirts with other disciplines.
Mr. Frank has won many awards for this work, including a fellowship of the Academy Musiktheater heute, Gargonza Arts Award interdisciplinary residency fellowship, New York City’s MATA Festival, Ensemble Proton Bern’s Protonwerk No. 6, Progetto Positano Scholarship of the EVS Foundation (in cooperation with Ensemble Mosaik), SWR Experimental Studio residency for 2020, and the Composition Award of the City of Stuttgart. His music has been performed across Europe, Asia and North America. Andreas Eduardo Frank studied at the Würzburg Music Academy and at the Electronic Studio of the Basel Music Academy. He is currently Artistic Director of Ensemble Lemniscate.
