Hans Tutschku is a composer of instrumental and electroacoustic music.

In 1982 he joined the Ensemble für Intuitive Musik Weimar and later studied theatre and composition in Berlin and Dresden (Germany), The Hague (Netherlands), Paris (France), and Birmingham (England, UK). Since 2004 he has directed the electroacoustic studios at Harvard University (Cambridge, MA, USA).

Improvisation with electronics has been a core activity over the past 35 years. He also collaborates in film, theatre, and dance productions and has participated in concert cycles with Karlheinz Stockhausen.

He is the winner of several international competitions, among others: Bourges International Electroacoustic Music Awards (France), Concurso de Composición Electroacústica Destellos (Argentina), Concurso Internacional de Música Eletroacústica de São Paulo (CIMESP, Brazil), Giga-Hertz-Preis (Germany), Hanns-Eisler-Preis für Komposition und Interpretation zeitgenössischer Musik (Germany), Klang! (France), Prix Ars Electronica (Austria), Prix CIME, Prix Noroit-Léonce Petitot (France), and Musica Nova (Czech Republic). In 2005 he received the City of Weimar Culture Prize (Germany).

Besides his regular courses at the university, he has taught international workshops for musicians and non-musicians on aspects of art appreciation, listening, creativity, composition, improvisation, live electronics, and sound spatialization in more than 20 countries.
