A focus will be placed on the topics of ecology, sustainability and music. Young musicians, composers and mediators are increasingly confronted by 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, such as in collaboration with scholars or visual artists, as well as new starting points for compositions. The composer in residence for the year 2024 is the Icelandic composer and bassist Bára Gísladóttir. She will develop performances in the region with the students. There will be space for between 60 and 100 students to study with course fees amounting to approximately 490 EUR.
