His teachers include Georg Kröll, Johannes Fritsch, Krzysztof Meyer, Clarence Barlow, Andrew Imbrie, Jorge Liderman and David Wessel. He also audited classes with György Ligeti in Hamburg. In 2002, his Internet performance environment was employed in a Munich Biennale opera (Orpheus Kristall) performance and in the same year Georg Hajdu became professor of multimedia composition at the Hamburg University of Music and Drama (HfMT).
