Alongside his concerts and exhibitions, Bernhard Gál gives lectures, artist talks and workshops, concerning his own work as well as general subjects of the contemporary music and art practice (sound installation, music & architecture, music & language, soundscape composition, etc.). ‘Sound installation art’ was also the subject of Gal’s lecturing at the University of Arts in Berlin in 2006-07. Currently, Gal works as a scientific researcher at the Paris Lodron University Salzburg, as part of the interdisciplinary doctoral college ‘Art and the Public’, in conjunction with his PhD studies at the University Mozarteum Salzburg.

Gal gives insights into his creative process and introduces selected intermedia art projects / sound installations, electro-acoustic or instrumental compositions. Topics and perspectives of his presentations vary with the audience (i.e. art and music professionals, university students, school classes, exhibition and concert visitors). ...
