Born 1980 in Maribor. Composer and sound artist currently studying at the University of Music and Dramatic Arts in Graz. Now lives and works in Western Europe. Since 2001 he has performed his own compositions for saxophone, guitar, vibraphone, double bass, electro-acoustical performances, interactive dance performances, computer music and audiovisual installations at many art festivals all around the world.

His work has strong conceptual fundaments and points away from expressive values of common aesthetic ideals. A subject of high concern and priority is the problem of absolute awareness of sonic perception which is directly connected with the question of existential legitimacy of sound art. Ciglar's compositional approach and attitude towards technological solutions are very similar and rooted in a revaluation of existent "material", resulting in its preliminary decomposition, in order to absorb its originally suggestive character for an employment in the further process of creation.
