Klaus Reiber

Klaus Reiber (D) is a self-educated musician and has been working as a drama pedagogue since the end of the 1980s on »Phänomenen« – phenomena that promote conscious listening and the development of the ability to resonate as a basis for choral, solo or dialogue stage-performances within the act of movement, speech, song and action. His cultural-pedagogic work and teaching activities in school and university contexts resulted in the development of the project or installation »besinnen und aufmerken« that included Wirkstatt des Hörens and Hörraumkonzerte für Jedermann. Experiencing resonance and the willingness to resonate as well as hearing in connection with other senses are the topics. The focus is on the human being and his or her ability to »relate«. »It’s not the ear that hears, but the human being as a whole.«

Denise Ritter

The often multi-channel electro-acoustic compositions used in the sound-installations, -sculptures and -objects of artist and geography graduate Denise Ritter are always derived from real sound situations – such as the sounds of a rolling mill in Lorraine, the scratching sound of plant leaves on masonry or of radio contact between the Earth and the International Space Station (ISS). In addition to the precise and differentiated elaboration of her compositions, Ritter convinces with her artistic treatment of space and form.

Erwin Stache

Erwin Stache studied mathematics and physics and soon also worked as a pianist and organist.
Since 1983, he has been combining these two sides – technology and music – in his work as a builder of sound objects. His objects are mostly based on the defamiliarization of everyday objects, both of the acoustic and electronic kind. His approach is based on the fact that often material procurement was difficult in the GDR. Erwin Stache’s artistic activity today encompasses the fields of installation, concert, film and workshops.

Erwin Stache could be seen and heard:

Franziska Windisch

Positioned in both sound art and visual art, the works of Franziska Windisch (D) move between the fields of performance, text, composition and installation. She develops scores for performances and actions that explore concepts such as trace, medium, finiteness and the unknown. Setups that produce unpredictable or irreversible results and thereby make transformational processes visible and audible are a central aspect of her artistic practice.

WIO – Wuppertaler Improvisationsorchester

Under the title »WIO – Ein Orchester dirigiert sich selbst«, the Wuppertaler Improvisationsorchester, WIO, was founded in cooperation with the Peter Kowald Gesellschaft in August 2007. The ensemble is inspired by the „Conductions“ approach applied by the London Improvisers Orchestra. Each member of the ensemble may take the lead by giving a hand signal and create musical structures out of the moment. In doing so, the WIO also makes reference to existing models: the Globe Unity Orchestra, in which Peter Kowald played, or the Sun Ra Arkestra, for example. The WIO is composed of a pool of 30 musicians whose musical backgrounds range from classical music to jazz and free improvisation.

The WIO could be seen and heard:
