Peter Rehberg died
The Holland Festival is shocked by the death of musician, maker and performer Peter Rehberg (1968, a.k.a. Pita).
Rehberg performed both solo and in collaboration throughout Europe, North and South America, Japan and Australia. He was among the first group of artists to use mobile computers to present live audio performances in the mid-nineties. He has worked with major artists such as Jim O'Rourke, Stephen O'Malley, Meg Stuart, and Gisèle Vienne (associate artist Holland Festival 2021).
His collaboration with Gisèle Vienne involved creating music for her performances (together with Stephen O'Malley), including The Pyre (Holland Festival 2013), Crowd (Holland Festival 2018) and Kindertotenlieder (Holland Festival 2021). The performance Kindertotenlieder made a big impression on audiences and the press last June. Cultuurpers said about the performance: "Unheimlich and intriguing (...) KTL, the band of Peter Rehberg and Stephen O'Malley is inspired by black metal (...) KTL plays a noisy, abstract score, a kind of loud in but intriguing soundscape that defines the atmosphere of the performance."
Our thoughts are with his loved ones, family and friends.
