Vladimír Hirsch (born July 3, 1954) is a Czech composer, instrumentalist, and sound experimenter, integrating industrial and dark ambient music with modern classical composition with a genre overlap conception. His compositional style is characterized by polymodal architectonics, polymictrotonality and the usage of digital technique to enhance sonic means of expression, where modern classical elements fuse within experimental soundscapes. Besides creating solo works, he is the co-founder of band Skrol, the duo Aghiatrias and various other projects (e.g. Zygote, Luminar Ax, Subpop Squeeze and Tiria). His music is marked by a dark, tense and tempestuous atmosphere. Between 1986 and 1995 he was member of experimental post-punk group Der Marabu.
