Lukas Lauermann (AT)

“I belong, however, to that species of man that is always on the edge of the thing they belong to, that sees not only the crowd they form a part of but also the great spaces all around.” (Fernando Pessoa)

Lukas Lauermann, born in Vienna in 1985, works as a live and studio musician, arranger and composer, collaborating with bands and artists such as e. g. Donauwellenreiter, Ritornell, Soap&Skin, ALASAC, Mimu Merz and Der Nino aus Wien. The range of his activities also includes theater and performance projects with Gelatin, Saint Genet, etc. and music for audio drama and film productions. His collaborations have so far resulted in an output of more than forty releases. The “probably most versatile and productive cellist in Austria” (Der Standard) has been playing live solo shows for some time, and now he finally steps outside his manifold previous musical contexts by presenting his first solo recording.
On his concert tours Lukas Lauermann frequently performs at renowned venues all over the world, such as La Cigale Paris, Royal Festival Hall London, National Concert Hall Taipei, Burgtheater Wien, Philharmonie Köln, or at festivals e. g. in Kazakhstan, Malaysia and Canada.
Art in general and music in particular are of essential importance for Lukas Lauermann and he has learned how to deal with his responsibility as an artist in this regard through his studies at the Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst in Vienna and the Anton Bruckner Privatuniversität in Linz, but first and foremost also through his many encounters and experiences with other people both in an artistic and in a personal context.
