Multi channel computer music concert hall Sonic Lab and CMS production studio



The Computer Music Studio
offers lectures and courses in the field of music and media technology, media composition and computer music, and the range of subjects it offers is closely integrated with those of the Institute DKM – Composition, Conducting and the Theory of Music – and JIM, the Institute for Jazz and Improvised Music. The CMS can be seen as an interface and competence centre spanning several institutes of the Anton Bruckner Private University, active in the region through numerous co-operations and internationally networked with exchanges and a lively conference scene.

The Computer Music Studio organizes numerous concert and lecture series: list

The Computer Music Studio was founded in 1995 as the SAMT - Studio for Advanced Music And Media Technology by DI Adelhard Roidinger and the Rector of the Bruckner Conservatory, Hans Maria Kneihs in the buildings of the Software Park Hagenberg. Since 2008 the University Studio, as it became, has been under the direction of  Ao.Univ.Prof. Mag. Andreas Weixler. At the same time an institute directive changed the name of the studio to the CMS - Computer Music Studio.
