The works of german composer Clemens von Reusner are characterised by purely electronically generated sounds and those found in special places and processed in the studio. The work on the sound itself, its arrangement and movement on individual paths in the virtual acoustic spaces of multi-channel loudspeaker configurations are at the centre of his compositional work.

At the end of the 1980s, Clemens von Reusner developed the music software KANDINSKY MUSIC PAINTER, which uses graphic tool to generate musical structures via MIDI. He composes commissioned works for radio and festivals and repeatedly refers to contemporary and historical works from music, literature and the visual arts in his musical language. Clemens von Reusner is also active as a curator and reviewer at international festivals for electroacoustic music.

His works have been awarded national and international prizes. He received the Thomas-Seelig-Fixed-Media Prize 2024 from the German Society for Electroacoustic Music (DEGEM) for his entire oeuvre. His compositions are performed at renowned international festivals for contemporary music in Asia, Europe, North and South America. Clemens von Reusner was invited to the World Music Days for New Music 2011 in Zagreb, 2017 in Vancouver and 2019 in Tallinn. In 2023 he was nominated for the GEMA German Music Author's Prize.
