A conductor becoming blurry, an actor removing make-up, passages from James Joyce's Ulysses, or lay musicians in YouTube videos: in Brigitta Muntendorf's compositions, material is by no means limited to the purely musical. In each of her works she poses the question anew: what is the aesthetic foundation of a sonic artwork, and what can it achieve?

She thereby doesn't rely on conventions and accustomed rituals; from her perspective, the demands of an artistic engagement with the present cannot be met within the limitations of familiar systems and models.

Therefore she seeks to revise the supposedly pre-defined metier. The central question is always as follows: under what circumstances and by what means can music be presented as a valid contemporary art form?
