    Laure M. Hiendl (*1986, pronouns: they/he) is a composer and curator based in Berlin. Their work is concerned with music as a spatial art, and is situated between concert music, performance, music theater, installation and other interdisciplinary realms, exploring the performativity of the space-time-body relationship in music as a live act — as a shared space in time between bodies for an event that is inherently political. Hiendl earned their Doctorate at Columbia University New York and is currently Assistant Professor at the University Mozarteum Salzburg. They co-founded the festival Music Installations Nuremberg.
