Dominik Johannes Dieterle (born 1989) is currently (2016) studying music education with a special focus on music theory with Michael Polth at the University of Music and Performing Arts, Mannheim (GER). He attended instrumentation classes with Andreas N. Tarkmann and composition classes with Sidney Corbett, as well as additional classes with Simon Steen-Andersen and Niels Rønsholdt during a term abroad at the Royal Academy of Music, Aarhus (DK). Besides that, he attended master classes with John Høybye, NikolausBrass and Alexander Müllenbach. In 2015, he received a scholarship from the Austrian Arts Sessions and a further scholarship from the European Forum for Young Choral Composers in 2016. Since 2013, he is working as a freelance composer and arranger for both choir and instrumental music. His works often include the fundamental question of „What is silence?“ and are trying to evoke a contemplative mood, which enables the listener to concentrate on every singular musical sound event.
