Boris Hauf

Multi-Instrumentalist, composer, producer and performer Boris Hauf has released approximately 50 albums, composed music for 40 performance and dance pieces, 12 ensembles and 7 films. As curator he has developed festivals and concert-series formats, record releases and large scale orchestral events. He is active in the educational field since 2010.
Haufs current musical practice oscillates between the free jazz and avant-garde new music of his early professional years, reductionist experimental electric-acoustic-improvisation, postindustrial-sci-fi-space-techno-electronica, film music, sound design and contemporary new music.
A significant part of his work are longstanding collaborations within the performing arts, with which he continuously explores interdisciplinary practices. Developing generative tools for creative processes has been the core of his educational practice at UdK Berlin and other institutions. His curatorial work expands personal musical research interests into larger formats: investigating the dualism of improvisation and composition throughout various geographical locations (“Chicago Sound Map”); exposing audiences of all ages and abilities to a wide range of musical styles (“Playdate”); establishing innovative concert formats transcending traditional concert situations (“Cinesthesia”). Together with Vancouver based designer Julian Lars Gosper he started the record label Shameless in 2015.Boris Hauf plays worldwide with a variety of bands and ensembles including Clark, Owl & Mack, Next Delusion, The Peeled Eye. As performer and composer he collaborates closely with choreographers Christina Ciupke, Martin Nachbar, Karen Christopher and many others within the performance context. Boris is the keyboarder/multi-instrumentalist of legendary Austrian rock band Naked Lunch. He owns and runs the label Shameless and lives in Berlin, Germany.
