Trickster Sound Group


Immerse yourself in a world of sounds and colours. Ambient music, live acrylic animation.

Beyond the city walls, there is the sky above our heads and a world of fantasy and dreams that lives in each of us. Our multi-genre art project aims to convey a sense of who we really are.
Our musical performance is a magical collage created by electronic and live instruments. At the same time, the music is transformed into colourful images under the hands of an animation artist.

Resonance Art Trio


The “Resonance Art Trio” consists of the members Marc Kopitzki on viola, Franziska Aller on double bass and Moritz Ebert on cello. The three musicians got to know each other at the summer course of Resonance Teaching in 2018. Since spring 2019, they have been playing together regularly and continue to be trained in various forms of improvisation (free improvisation, jazz and folkloristic music) by the founder of the Resonance Teaching Thomas Lange. In the process, the “Resonance Art Trio” is constantly expanding its repertoire and is incessantly on the lookout for new musical influences.

The three members are also active outside of their formation in other bands and ensembles that are in contact with free improvisation and improvised music (including “Stegreif, “Ebert & Meyerhöfer”, “Conic Rose”, etc.). Exposed to these diverse and unique influences, the trio continues to develop the possibilities of improvised music.

Hybrid Sonic Biotopes für Field Recordings & Konstruktion#4


Peter Cusack (Field Recordings) / Annette Krebs (Konstruktion#4)

Konstruktion#4 is a electro-acoustic live assemblage of metal pieces, strings, objects, microphones, tablets and sensors. Like through a microscope, microphones make audible the finest, otherwise inaudible sound shades and colours of the sound objects. Particles of sound and noise are transformed into neo-systopian organisms, sonic biotopes and hybrid sonic landscapes.

Peter Cusack is “DJ ing“ field recordings that he has recorded in many different places, live via a tablet (Lemur) to abstract soundscapes that sometimes remind of electronic music.

In Duo, the sounds of Fieldrecordings, Konstruktion#4 and Werkhalle Wiesenburg itself are transformed into abstract, surreal and hybrid-organic resonating sonic landscapes.

Guilherme Rodrigues

Improvisierte Musik


This ensemble explores the concepts of acoustic improvisation.
Made up of viola, flute and cello, the music produced by the trio creates intimate atmospheres with special attention to detail in textures and sounds in a small chamber ensemble setup.
Silence and acoustic space are two important factors in the match between acoustic materials.
The sound breaks out of the silence to dive back into it.

Wiesenburg in my Life – 7 Fragments


For 7 years, the Werkhalle Wiesenburg has been an artistic laboratory for me with the best acoustics and the greatest freedom and at the same time a family with outstanding personalities and blatant freaks. On my birthday, I invite you to a feast for your ears, eyes and not least your palate.

Ensemble Treffen Um Die Ecke
spielen Musik von Philip Corner


Set 1:
Hilary Jeffery
presents a sequence of pieces taken from Philip Corner’s recent collection of compositions:

“The Art of No-Art” (2022), Los Angeles: Recital Program 

Philip Corner recently sold his old Swiss alphorn to Hilary Jeffery and subsequently sent this book for him to explore and play from, suggesting that some pages should work on 3 or 4 octaves of the instrument, with glissandos interpreted as sweeps through the harmonic series. Although the compositions in this book are originally conceived for piano exploring multiples of one key on several octaves, many lend themselves to other instrumentations. Hilary has selected a sequence of these pieces, combined together for a complete programme of solo alphorn with trombone interjections. Hilary originally recorded a series of trombone pieces by Corner together with his teacher James Fulkerson which was released on the CD “Extreme Positions” (2007), New World Records.

Set 2:
The first ever performance by a new ensemble dedicated to performing  the music of Philip Corner – Ensemble Treffen Um Die Ecke (ETUDE). Corner’s music present creative challenges to musicians in a playful and immediate way. His compositions dive deep into the material of music and its transcendental qualities.To play his music is to take music very seriously, in a lighthearted and fun way. This new ensemble will also play pieces from “The Art of No-Art” and more. This is their first musical meeting, and a pilot for future long term projects. 

Hilary Jeffery – alphorn, trumpet, trombone
Theresa Patzschke – flute

Wiesenburg Quartett

“The art of thinking and performing music simultaneously“.
With these few words, the Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians described the musical phenomenon of improvisation in 1954. It’s as simple as that!
Improvisation thrives on the moment, but also on understanding each other and exchanging ideas. The constant search for new musical partners is part of this process. This creates new colours on the palette of individual expression. Here is a fresh quartet from the marvellously creative pool of this city.
Lina Allemano – trumpet
Beat Keller – feedbacker electric guitar
Matthias Bauer – double bass

Udo Mader  – Einmannorchester


Everyone as strange as he can.”

Udo Mader grabs every tradition by the collar and shakes it until something decent comes out of it again – like the old song, for example. (Wilfried Happel)

The love of the thing, which is noticeable among other things in a due measure of curiosity, but also in an unwillingness to compromise, has made Udo Mader grow over the years into an amazing performer, whose presence at live performances releases real energies. (number)

Cattle jazz or something like that. (taz)

Leize Jenius – Faces and Voices


Our self-perception in image and sound has experienced a radical intensification in recent decades through the conquest of all kinds of mobile communication machines. Video calls have become part of everyday life. Never before have we been exposed to so many faces of others and especially our own. We have become accustomed to studying our face at leisure, finding a perfect position of the head just before we want to capture a selfie. Voice messages make us hear our voice more and more often, most of the time we don’t like it.
Has this changed our social appearance, especially facial expressions and voice? Are we trying to present ourselves more favourably, nicer, smarter and cooler?
