To say Denovaire is an accomplished composer feels like an understatement. Having graduated in composition in Graz, Austria, Denovaire then travelled to Delhi and Benares to study traditional Indian music. He now combines his passions for non-European sounds and experimental techniques with Western influences: jazz, rock and orchestral music. Testament to his dedication and talent, in 2012 Denovaire was awarded the State stipendium by the Austrian Government and in the same year also won the 1st prize in the Gustav Mahler composition competition.
