Peter Rehberg (b. 1968, London), (aka Pita) is the founder of Editions Mego, and a composer and performer of electronic music.

Rehberg, for decades residing in Vienna, began his career 25 years ago when the aesthetic possibilities of so-called Laptop music were just about to be discovered. He started working with computers since then and is internationally perceived as one of the pioneers of synthetic music. His musical background is to be found in Noise, Ambient, and Techno, as well as early electroacoustics. He currently explores the possibilities of audio experimentation using a modular synthesizer set up.

Over the last years he has made many collaborations such Fenn’O’Berg (w/ Jim O’Rourke and Christian Fennesz), KTL (w/ Sunn O)))s Stephen O’Malley), R/S (w/ Marcus Schmickler), Shampoo Boy (w/ Christina Nemec and Christian Schachinger) and more recently NPVR (w/ Nik Void). These musical collaborations are completed by his cooperation with the French theatre director Giséle Vienne, Icelandic born/Berlin-based choreographer Margrét Sara Guðjónsdóttir and Ballet de Lorraine in Nancy.

He has produced over a dozen albums, covering an astonishing variety of experimental electronic styles, LPs like the Get Out / Get Down / Get Off / Get In quartet have received broad international critical acclaim and were released on such labels as Editions Mego, Touch, Häpna, etc. He played various international festivals, like SONAR, All Tomorrows Parties, CTM Berlin, MUTEK, Donaufestival, and won the Prix Ars Electronica for Digital Musics & Sound Art in 1999.
