Tobias Fandel’s artistic works address perception and sensuality as well as the philosophy and psychology of both urban and technological changes. In doing so, they create macroscopical »pixels« yielding fragmented aesthetic experiences which allow the listener to subjectively position himself.
Numerous international engagements with festivals, concerts series and ensembles in Taipei (Soochow University), Tel Aviv (CEME Festival: Ensemble Meitar), Sochi (XII Sochi Winter Arts Festival: Yuri Bashmet), Moscow (Russian States Philharmony Moscow: Moscow Soloists), New York (Mise-En Music Festival: Ensemble Mise-En), Lugano (Ticino Musica: Ensemble Modern), Bangkok (TICF Festival, Hong Kong New Music Ensemble), St. Petersburg (reMusik May 2020: Moscow Contemporary Music Ensemble) and Chengdu (XV Chengdu Sun River Composition Prize: 3rd prize) attest to his culturally open artistic vision.
In addition, Fandel has collaborated with artists from different disciplines, such as Bobbi Chen (acting, dance), Ma Haijiao (film) and Silvan Schmid (jazz trumpet) within the scope of the Transcultural Collaboration and the Shanghai Biennale.
After studying in Frankfurt am Main (music and mathematics), Munich (Markus Bellheim, piano), Zurich (Isabel Mundry, composition) and Helsinki (Tuija Hakkila, piano), Fandel completed his post-graduate studies (Meisterklasse) with honors under Claus-Steffen Mahnkopf in Leipzig. He is currently pursuing a Doctor of Music degree at The Chinese University of Hong Kong.
