Peter Brötzmann (b.1941) is a German composer, musician, visual artist and graphic designer. After studying painting and graphic design at the Werkkunstschule in Wuppertal and applying his trade at an advertising agency, Brötzmann established himself as a leading exponent of improvised music. As a musician he has been influenced both by free jazz, as well as by the conceptual interventions of the Fluxus movement, with which he was associated in the mid-1960s. Dissatisfied with the agenda of commercial art galleries, Brötzmann has maintained a mostly private, but prolific output of visual work along with creating graphic work to accompany his musical recordings.
