Martijn Padding

Martijn Padding (*1956) has a fascination for transparency and contradictions between the  logical and the illogical. In his work he looks for subtlety rather than the grand gesture.  Although his pieces often take their cue from a technical musical starting point, his work increasingly contains a theatrical element. In his recent work, his characteristic angularity and concise harmonically structured language are less prominent. His aesthetic recognises no hierarchy among modernist elements, influences from pop culture or historical classical principles, for example. Padding is also the coordinator for the Composition department.
