In addition to his work as a composer and installation artist, Bernhard Gál also performs live, using a laptop computer along with additional electronic devices. Gálís solo concerts are comprised of elements from recent music and art projects as well as new field recordings, which he takes apart and reassembles in a quasi-improvised, live context. In many cases, the performances also reflect the respective concert venue, with its distinctive acoustic and sociocultural characteristics. Since 2002, Gál has given around 200 concerts on five continents and has worked in ongoing collaborations with other musicians, e.g. with clarinettist Kai Fagaschinski, vocalist/composer Jennifer Walshe and and composer Tung Chao-Ming. In 2008, the audio CD relive was released on Gromoga Records, being the first published audio documentation of Galís laptop performances. Recently, he has also started using audio fragments from his latest cd release same difference in a live context. Furthermore, Gal continues to work on textur, a series of audio-visual perfomances combining phonography and photography.
