Schubert’s interest explores the border between the acoustic and electronic world. In music composition, immersive installation and staged pieces he examines the interplay between the digital and the analogue. He creates pieces that realize test settings or interaction spaces that question modes of perception and representation. Continuing topics in this field are authenticity and virtuality. The influence and framing of digital media on aesthetic views and communication is researched in a post-digital perspective. Recent research topics in his works were virtual reality, artificial intelligence and online-mediated artworks.
Schubert is a founding member of ensembles such as “Decoder“. His works have been performed more than 900 times in the last few years by numerous ensembles in over 40 countries.
Alexander Schubert studied neuro-informatics and multimedia composition. He is a freelance composer and professor at the HfMT Hamburg. His work focuses on post-digital performance concepts, which take place at the junction of the digital and analog world. He explores the friction between immersive physical settings and their artificially virtual counterparts. His multimedia compositions use sound, video and light. They address the subjective and social confrontation of humans with a technical reality and future.
