As the largest meeting of university studios for electronic music, »next_generation« offers young composers a platform to present their new compositional developments.

From Wednesday, June 22 to Saturday, June 25, 2022, the ninth edition of the festival »next_generation« will take place at ZKM. Over the course of four days, an exciting and dense program will cover the latest positions on the topics of »fixed media«, »spatial music«, and »live electronics«. Thus, next_generation 9.0 guarantees a representative overview of the current creative work of the upcoming generation of composers in the context of technology and art.

This year, students of electronic university studios from Germany, Austria, France and Switzerland will have the opportunity to present their work in concerts and numerous installations at various locations in the ZKM, or to exchange ideas about their own areas of interest in lectures and discussions. In addition, professors and lecturers will report on current developments in the individual studios and departments.
