During a project phase of several weeks, students were guided by the composer Thomas Taxus Beck in writing contemporary music which is now performed in a special concert. Participants respond to works and techniques used by Janes Tenney, Iannis Xenakis and Chaya Czernowin.

James Tenney’s Form 3 (1993), Iannis Xenakis’ Terretektorh (1966) and Chaya Czernowin’s The Fabrication of Light (2019) will be performed at Cologne’s Philharmonie on May 7 at 8 pm by the Ensemble Musikfabrik and the NDR Youth Symphony Orchestra.
