- Vienna Austria
Daniel Kohlmeigner is based in Vienna, travelled the world as an electronic musician, performed live and released music as one half of the duo Ogris Debris. From radio singles to experimental club music, his productions and personal taste covers very different ways of musical expression.
"Never stop listening to the songs that made you fall in love with music in the first place!“ is one of Daniel’s principles to make sure he remains passionate about his work. Loud and quiet, funny and serious, wild and relaxed, rich and fine are only some of the contrasts to keep life and music interesting.
After lecturing at the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna (MDW/ipop) and a public technical college (Graphische) he experienced the joy of sharing his knowledge and the demand for comprehensive education in the creative and technical aspects of making electronic music. He consequently teamed up with the Vienna Music Institute (VMI) to create their three-year study program for electronic music and sound design. The program is created and led by Daniel and is running since 2019 with new students starting and graduating every year. He has also become a Senior Lecturer at the University of Music and Performing Arts and writing curricula for modern artistic pop music studies which will be public from 2025.
Feel free to contact Daniel for private lessons or interesting collabs.
