Ole Lützow-Holm

Ole Lützow-Holm studied composition with Klaus Huber and Brian Ferneyhough. Coming from a central European, avantgarde mode of expression, he has created works for a great variety of ensembles and contexts, early receiving international recognition for his music. Lützow-Holm is a professor of composition at the Academy of Music and Drama, University of Gothenburg.

2012 he completed the artistic research project Towards an Expanded Field of Art Music. There, the topic was to experimentally intro­duce ideas and hands-on procedures that promoted unorthodox ways of responding to historic as well as contemporary classical music. The applied research methods aimed at facilitating practice-based musical dialogues, inviting a wide scope of trans­disciplinary discourses to participate in the quest for a potentially broader range of per­formative strate­gies and conceptual protocols. In recent years, Lützow-Holm has explored generative approaches, elaborating on short-term, transient musical practices that, inspired by perceptions of ambiguity and incomplete­ness, would integrate elements of improvisation and open form, recur­rently in collaboration with other artists.
