Peter Pichler in seinem Studio am Trautonium


Peter Pichler from Munich is a cross-border commuter between different art forms.

Today he is one of the few musicians who masters the Trautonium or Mixturtrautonium and the only one who performs live with it.

With the Trautonium, he has a long-standing fascination for the extraordinary sounds and the extensive musical possibilities of the instrument. He plays contemporary, classical literature for Trautonium and Mixturtrautonium as well as film music and his own compositions.

When he was barely 14, Pichler and his punk band CONDOM found the possibility of expressing his attitude musically. The ban on the first single and the subsequent arrest for “offensive to lyrics for the authorities” followed immediately.

Pichler studied classical guitar and renaissance lute at the Mozarteum Salzburg, the Leopold Mozart Conservatory Augsburg and the State University of Music in Karlsruhe.
He is a laureate of the Bavarian funding award of the state capital Munich and other competitions. He composes for film, television and theater (eg Munich Kammerspiele) and is involved as a musician, musical director and arranger with Peter Licht, Funny van Dannen and Hans Söllner productions; also as a composer, musical dramaturge and musician in various free and public theater productions.

In the 90s he toured Europe with his avant-garde pop band NO GOODS.

In April 2019, he led the Trautonium out of Europe for the first time in its 90-year history on a concert tour through Australia.
