Friday, 25.3.2022 - 18:00 - Gropius Bau, Cinema - admission free

As part of QuerKlang, students explore sounds, relate them to each other, and make their discoveries audible to others. They are accompanied by teams consisting of educators, composers, and students. The world of the school, the world of university education, and the world of musicians and composers are brought into an exciting and inspiring context.

These concerts are premieres of group compositions.

The students come from the Carl-von-Ossietzky-Oberschule, the Schulfarm Insel Scharfenberg, the Parzifal-Schule Berlin and the Musikgymnasium C.Ph.E. Bach. They work together with the composers Andrei Cucu, Sabine Vogel, Tomoya Yokokawa and Anais-Nour Benlachhab.

What does our city of Berlin sound like today and what should its future sound be like tomorrow?

Together with others, you will be on the trail of the sound of the future in sound walks, discussion and composition processes!

As a participant in the sound walk, you will need a smartphone to record and send sounds!
