Where is the music coming from?
The sound impression for the musician in the orchestra is clearly different from the sound impression of the audience. Not only the instruments, but the entire body of sound is designed to resonate with the concert hall and enter into a symbiotic connection with the room.

I wanted to make this process tangible in a poetic way.

Lecture: The audience doesn't listen to you? Get to know ways of thinking and strategies that lead to an event conception in which your audience likes to listen. Through a discussion of the phenomenon of listening itself, we approach the themes of 'sound as identity' and 'musical dramaturgy' before concluding the lecture with reflections on how to include the sense of hearing as an equal partner in a holistic production. By listening you will reach your audience deeper and the contents will have a long lasting effect.
