An atypical composer with multiple influences, Bernhard Lang's music reflects a true philosophy of the world. His musical thinking has been influenced by the media—cinema, literature, dance—by microtonal music, and by the practice of improvisation and computer composition. His musical thinking was shaken up by Gilles Deleuze's reflections (Difference and Repetition, 1968), giving rise, in particular, to the Differenz/Wiederholung series.
From then on, his work was largely based on the principle of loops by the Austrian director Martin Arnold and on the cut-up technique created by William S. Burroughs.
An eclectic artist, he has created numerous sound installations, performed as an improviser and, for the past fifteen years, has been mainly interested in live music.
