The workshop is set up as an open session, which means just come along. If you have your own electronic, self-made or bought instruments (Walkman, SP, all electronically amplifiable instruments) just bring them along. If you don't have and instrument and still want to participate, that's fine too. Become part of the collective yourself and help shape the venture of spontaneous improvisation. No pre-registration needed. For free and open for all ages!
The workshop is led by the open artist collective "Elektrische Leiter" from Cologne. The collective acts as a flexible band body and re-forms depending on the occasion. The participants react musically to each other as if in an amorphous body, thus constantly forming new and improvised structures and connections with their electronic instruments. All signals converge at a separate mixing console and only this mixing and processing of the sounds - processed by the electrical conductors - can be heard in the room. The collective Elektrische Leiter acts as a network node of artists of different focus and provenance; electronic and acoustic music, contemporary music and light music, amateurs and professionals, nerds and daredevils.
