ueber mich - about me
Guenter Johannes Kalina
sound investigator, composer, musician. 
                                                        In 1952 at the age of 8 years I started to learn the zither at a music school. I was enormously ambitious. After one year I was allowed to play for the first time with a school music group at a public concert in the ballroom of a paper mill and a few years later perform duets. Over the next few years I also learnt tenor horn, euphonium, trombone and drums. I was on duty four years in  military music  in the headquarter of the region Burgenland under its music director, Colonel Josef Kotay and as a military musician I was able to study bassoon and graduated from an evening grammar school. As a trombone player and drummer I then played with various jazz combos and swing big bands and as bassoon player in several orchestras. I then switched career direction to computers and spent my professional life in many different areas of computer science until I retired. As a result of my life, since my studies in the USA, I research with experimental music, jazz and 'digital music design'.
