sound experiments and musical radio plays with students from the elementary school next door
Seeking encounters with the local population, Klangforum Wien gladly took the chance to make contact with the elementary school Am Hundsturm, which is only a few meters from the ensemble's rehearsal space. In the autumn of 2012, the first workshop with students from this school was realised; it was hugely successful for both sides and laid the foundation for a more long-term cooperation between these two institutions, which is currently planned to last two years.
Sound experiments and musical audio dramas have encouraged the children consciously to listen and to sharpen their understanding. By actively making music and developing simple compositions, creativity, the capacity for independent thinking and powers of judgement were cultivated.
