About the project

A project of the Bad Goisern Music School in Cooperation with the 2024 European Capital of Culture Salzkammergut Region

With the newly conceived seven-day Goisern Music days festival, the state music school, which successfully conducted master classes and workshops for three decades, is placing a focus on contemporary music for the first time.

Within this, a focus will be placed on the topics of ecology, sustainability and music. Young musicians, composers and mediators are increasingly confronted with aspects of climate change. On the one hand, these are practical questions that come up within the music industry. What does a “green event” mean? How do I shape my work as a musician in a more sustainable manner, e.g., in reference to traveling?

In terms of content, however, as well, the areas of ecology and sustainability offer new opportunities for the shaping of programming or also new starting points for compositions. Experts from music universities and professional orchestras teach woodwind, brass, and percussion instruments, as well as ensemble conducting, performance practice, and contemporary music programming.

A prominent composer-in-residence works with students to develop performances in the region. On offer are 60 to 100 study places with course fees of about 490, – euro.

The Goiserer Musiktage will be accompanied by a symposium and workshops on music, ecology and digitalization. As part of the Goiserer Musiktage. As part of the Goiserer Musiktage, artist Bill Fontana develops an artistic statement on the consequences of climate change with the sound sculpture *Silent Echoes: Dachstein*.
