noid /aka Arnold Haberl *1970, studied cello and mathematics. He is teaching at the Multimedia-Art department of the University for Applied Science in Salzburg. The composer, sound-artist, cello player and improvisor understands his work as fundamental research, leading to a wide range of contradictory outcome, spanning from cello-solo and tape-pieces to compositions for ensembles, improvisation scores or performances with electronic or hybrid instruments, from sound-installations to videos and imaginary music. Also his contributions as a programmer for the freeware ppooll can be seen in this context. The construction of new instruments is considered a process of composition.
Coming from the practice of field recording, he considers sounds as facts. His lifetime occupation with the historical artefact also known as cello is never confined to the purely musical field. He is part of the organizing team of the monthly concert series der bloede dritte mittwoch and he is curating the soundart exhibition in Nickelsdorf in the frame of the konfrontationen festival. From 2007 to 2015 he was part of the organizing team of the reheat festival kleylehof13. Based in Vienna, he is a member of the collective. He performs with individuals such as Angelica Castello, Klaus Filip, Ryu Hankil, Axel Doerner, Susanna Gartmayer, Christian Weber, Elisabeth Schimana, dieb13, Kazuhisa Uchihashi, Matija Schellander, Hans Koch and many more.
