Dominik Johannes Dieterle (born 1989) graduated in both audio engineering and music education and is currently enrolled in the music theory master's program under 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, Nikolaus Brass and Alexander Müllenbach.
Dieterle has won prestigious scholarships with the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity (Canada, 2019), the European Forum for Young Choral Composers (Germany, 2016) and the Austrian Arts Sessions (2015). Since 2013, he has worked as a freelance composer and arranger for both choir and instrumental ensembles. In his words, his works often approach the fundamental question “what is silence?” and strive to evoke a contemplative mood, which enables the listener to concentrate on each individual musical sound event.
