Pirchner began his musical career in jazz, but dealt with early on the contemporary music and its theorists (Theodor W. Adorno, Arnold Schoenberg, Olivier Messiaen, etc.). From 1963 he was a vibraphonist of the Oscar Klein Quartet; He plays marimba on the first record of the Vienna Art Orchestra. In the last 15 years of his life he worked mostly as a composer. In 1973, he released his first LP with a self-drawn cover, "half a double album", which triggered a positive to enthusiastic media response in the German-speaking world. He then plays a large number of different instruments in the playback, sings self-texted songs, alienates familiar templates and mixes, almost always provocative, styles and sounds. This has earned him his reputation as a representative of the new folk music and as the author of "critical Heimatmusik".




He later used some of the songs of the "half double album" in a film that he produced together with Christian Berger in 1974: "The Fall of the Alpine Country". He not only wrote the music, but also the lyrics and appeared in the film as a singer and actor. He ironically uses Tyrolean folklore stereotypes, which earned him fierce criticism from conservative circles. In 1975, Bert Breit invited him to compose music for a film about Tyrol, which Breit planned with Otto Grünmandl. The result was the "String Quartet for wind quintet", PWV 15.

Werner Pirchner became known throughout Austria for his sound design for the ORF cultural channel Ö1 in 1994. In 1995 he composed the incidental music for Hofmannsthal's Jedermann at the Salzburg Festival. Another commissioned by a large public was the music for the television break film of the New Year's Concert of the Vienna Philharmonic on January 1, 2000.




Werner Pirchner's multi-layered music uniquely combines elements of jazz, entertainment and so-called serious music. From the electronically processed Yodler to the obliquely harmonized Schubert, from a tribute to John Cage to the persiflage of the adolescent Indian pilgrims and drug users, from the parodied language of advertising to today still valid sociocritical texts spans a wide arc. His works often alternate between direct vitality and a kind of meta-music, which deals analytically with many-used music models. As a self-taught Werner Pirchner had begun to classify idiosyncratic and in no style stereotype until his death.

Anyone who deals with Austrian artists (of whatever genre) will find again and again that this is a particularly oblique genre. As authors, I come to mind for example Thomas Bernhard.

Werner Pirchner is the musical counterpart. So, watch out: Here is strong Tobak offered, only something for die-hard!

.... "Weird, weird, the weirdest" ... Werner Pirchner!

Note:
For the sake of protecting my photographs, I deliberately in Artwork made the reverse in a couple montages, which of course does not affect the quality of the original design.
