Werner Dafeldecker was born in Vienna in 1964 and studied the double bass. As a musician, he moves between improvises and composed music and takes advantage of the manifold possibilities offered by electro-acoustics. His works often follow the principles of reductive music that is based on thinned-out, concentrated material, subjecting it to subtle modifications. Werner Dafeldecker also focuses intensively on field recording, or capturing natural and environmental sounds on recording equipment. He has built up an extensive sound archive and realised several works for radio.
