Like the Institute for Music and Acoustics (IMA) before, the Hertz Lab is especially committed to the promotion and presentation of electronic music and, generally, to the further technological development of electronic and digital musical components. To this end, and as part of its Guest Composer Program, each year the ZKM | IMA awards several work scholarships to composers, musicians, sound artists and music program.
