Otto Sidharta (Jakarta)
Born in Bandung, Indonesia, 1955. Lives and works in Jakarta, Indonesia. He finished his post-graduate study in composition and electronic music composition at Sweelinck Conservatorium (Amsterdam, the Netherlands) under the guidance of Professor Ton de Leeuw (1926-1996).
Sidharta's interest in using environmental sounds to express his musical ideas developed when he was a student at the Jakarta Institute of Arts (Institut Kesenian Jakarta). He performed his first electronic music piece, Kemelut, based on water sounds in the First Indonesian Young Composer Festival (Pekan Komponis Indonesia) in 1979. In 1982 he collected some nature and animal sounds on Nias Island, in the Borneo (Kalimantan) jungle, and other remote places in Indonesia. These sounds were used as material for some of his works such as "Ngendau", "Hutan Plastik", and "East Wind".
For supplement/upstream, Sidharta had created "Wind of Trade", a soundscape based on the sounds and voices associated with Dutch and Indonesian culture, such as sounds from nature, markets, street vendors, trains, ships and children playing.
Besides being a composer, Sidharta is Chairman of both the Music Committee of Jakarta Art Council (Komite Musik Dewan Kesenian Jakarta) and Indonesian Composer's Association (Asosiasi Komponis Indonesia). He teaches at Jakarta Institute of Arts (Institut Kesenian Jakarta) and in Cantus (Music Education and Information Center, Jakarta). Furthermore, he is the Music Director for the National Symphony Orchestra (Orkes Simfoni Nasional).
At present he teaches at Jakarta Institute of Arts (Institut Kesenian Jakarta) and Universitas Pelita Harapan (UPH) for composition and other related subject.
