The design of music – this is the task that QuerKlang places on the students. What sounds simple, though, is actually a big challenge. Because: Who has composed before? What is composing? What do I need to do this? What musical material do I use as the basis? What is the idea or theme for the common composition?

When a collective of students composes it is "a continuous negotiation process." There are so many ideas, proposals, possibilities, discussions and questions, everyone should and wants to participate, to be heard. "Some people think it's easy to compose such a mess, but it was hard work and we had to try and discuss a lot to get to our piece, but now it's gotten really good and we're proud we did it," said the 10-year-old Tim on experimental composing.
