Adrian Kleinlosen studied jazz trombone at the University of Arts in Graz from 2007 to 2011, attended theory and composition courses and received several scholarships and prizes. He gave concerts and toured through Germany, Europe, and Asia. From 2011 to 2013 he studied composition at the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts. His piece for music theatre Zurück, zwei Dialoge was performed 15 times at the Lucerne Theatre in 2013. From 2013 to 2015, he studied composition at the University of Music and Theatre in Leipzig, where since 2018 Kleinlosen is now doing a doctorate in musicology. The artistic work of Adrian Kleinlosen is focused on his compositional work, which has been honored with various scholarships.

The fellowship provides him the possibility to work on two pieces: First, he seeks to complete mv1:ia work for bassoon, piano and electronics which, as the first in a series of works, deals with the theory of an inflationary multiverse. Second, he will continue to work on mv2:k, a 20-minute piece of electronic music. This piece, which thematically refers to the Kabbalah, the mystical tradition of Judaism, involves recordings of Hebrew texts from the book Sefer ha-Temuna, published around 1250.
