To experience contemporary music more intensely, to listen to it with greater differentiation and learn to understand it through the experience of composing oneself: such are the goals of the Response Project. Approximately 100 teenagers will explore the composition »Migrants« by Georges Aperghis between February and June 2023. The students will form small groups to compose together, offering their musical responses to the work in question. The composer Thomas Taxus Beck will instruct and accompany them on their creative and compositional pathway. The students will then perform their own works in a concert dedicated to this purpose at ACHT BRÜCKEN | Music for Cologne. On June 12, 2023 the Ensemble Resonanz will perform Georges Aperghis’ composition »Migrants« under the baton of Emilio Pomàrico at the Philharmonie in Cologne.
