Stefan Pohlit
Stefan Pohlit, born in Heidelberg in 1976, studied musical composition and theory of music in Saarbrücken, Basel, Lyon, Karlsruhe and Istanbul. He has been teaching theory of music at the Karlsruhe International Academy for musical Education and partly at the Karlsruhe University of Music since 2005. Private oriental and ethno-musicological studies, motivated by an approach to Islam, have been complemented by numerous sojourns and studies in the Middle-East. The study of the Ottoman court tradition, based on an active exchange with contemporary Turkish musical life, has been of greatest influence for his artistic development. As an expression of his own cultural double identity, his works aim at reuniting Occidental and Middle-Eastern traditions that both refer to Greek antiquity.
