Notes and Editorial Reviews

This autumn Gerhard Ruhm, the inventor and most important representative of what is known as experimental poetry and an artist who traverses boundaries between different genres, is not only devoting an impressive show of his work in the Bank Austria Kunstforum, but also this box set consisting of three albums of spoken texts, melodramas and chansons never previously published as sound documents. Gerhard Ruhm was born in Vienna in 1930. He came from a family of musicians. Ruhm studied piano and composition at the Academy of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna and took private lessons with Josef Matthias Hauer, the founder of twelve-tone music, between 1949 and 1954.
