The University of Music Karlsruhe as Guest at the ZKM
Wed, January 18, 2006 – Fri, January 20, 2006, Concert
For several years now the Karlsruhe University of Music has been a welcome guest, presenting concerts of a high standard every January here at ZKM. The Institute of New Music and Media (InMM), whose musical director is Wolfgang Rihm, continues to attract students from all over the world. It is not only the tutelage from such distinguished composers that brings them here, but also the chance to study electronic music. The ComputerStudio (led by Thomas A.Troge) offers exceptional equipment and a thorough course program. The percussion class, led by Prof. Isao Nakamura, present a concert of works written for percussion and electronics, and will be performing for the second time at ZKM already. Over three evenings you can listen to music written for loudspeakers or for acoustic instruments as well as interpretations of works which have established themselves as “classics” of new music.
