Wolfgang Müller is an author, musician and fine artist. He was born 1957 in Wolfsburg, Germany and has been living in Berlin since 1979. Wolfgang was founder of the post-punk Band Die Tödliche Doris (1980 – 1987) which had concerts in Eastern- and Western Europe, Japan, and the USA. In 1987, Die Tödliche Doris was artist of Documenta 8 in Kassel. In 1982 Müller published “Geniale Dilletanten” (Ingenious Dilletants), a manifesto of the West-Berlin music and multia-media underground scene. With his project “Die Tödliche Doris” he explores unmusical, nonmusical and extramusical spaces. In 1987 the Tödliche Doris disbanded into white vine. In 1990, Wolfgang Müller was invited to the Island of Iceland, to the Reykjavik Art Festival for an exhibition and performance. From that point on he has visited Iceland more than 30 times and has written about its culture, country, nature, and people for newspapers, radio and television: he also organized exhibitions in Iceland and Germany. Iceland became a “material” for Wolfgang Müller’s art work, which he realizes in different media: sound, music, objects, text, film, video, drawing, and painting. 1994, he reconstructed the voice of the Great Auk, a bird, which extinct 1844 in Iceland. From 2002-2003 Wolfgang Müller was professor at Hochschule der bildenden Künste in Hamburg and taught “experimental sculpture.“ He has written and directed nine radioplays for the national German radio. For the audioplay “Seancé Vocibus Avium”, with the reconstructed voices of eleven extinct birds, he received the Karl Sczuka-Award 2008.
