Johannes Kreidler (1980) studied from 2000 to 2006 at the Musikhochschule in Freiburg, Germany where teachers included Mathias Spahlinger (composition), Mesias Maiguashca and Orm Finnendahl (electronic music), and Eckehard Kiem (music theory). During this time he was also a Fellow of the European Union from 2004 to 2005 and a visiting student at the Institute of Sonology at the Koninklijk Conservatorium at The Hague in the Netherlands. He also attended seminars in philosophy and art history at the University of Freiburg. In 2008 he received broad attention for an art performance action in which he delivered 70,200 forms by truck to the GEMA head office (the German performance rights authority) in order to officially register his recent 33-second electronic piece comprised of 70,200 samples of other artists' work.
