Biography

Regina Irman was born on 22 March 1957 in Winterthur near Zurich, Switzerland, where she has spent
most of her life including her youth. After high school graduation (1976), Regina Irman studied at the local
conservatoire where she obtained a guitar teaching (1982) and a percussion concert diploma (1995,
passed with distinction).
Regina Irman composed her first pieces of music already at an early stage of her studies. Consequently,
she dedicated much time to composition that has become her principal professional activity over the
years. Focused on from the start, music theatre, experimental performance situations, micro tonality, and
strict classification systems that are often linked to language continue to be of particular interest. Currently,
the emphasis lies on electronic music.
Since 1983, Regina Irman has received numerous contracts. Her catalogue raisonné includes solo pieces,
chamber music, choral works, music theatre pieces, two operas, and electronic music.
Regina Irman received various scholarships and awards, including a scholarship from the City of Zurich that
allowed her to take a year-long sabbatical to exclusively concentrate on composition work. In 2007, the
Landis+Gyr company-owned culture foundation offered her a scholarship to spend 12 months in a studio
on the foundation’s estate in London.
Parts of Regina Irman’s oeuvre have been performed in Switzerland, Germany, Italy, France, Spain, and the
Ukraine. At present, she works as a freelance composer and percussionist as well as a professor at the
Teacher’s College of the Canton of Thurgau in Kreuzlingen at Lake Constance, Switzerland
