Get ready to immerse yourself in the mesmerizing world of Minimal Music like never before!

Mark your calendars for an unforgettable evening on the 30th of September, where lovers of Minimal Music and newcomers alike are cordially invited to a spectacular concert in the heart of Kassel.

Prepare to be enchanted by the captivating sounds of in process, an ensemble specializing in the enthralling realm of Minimal Music.

The spotlight of the evening will shine brightly on none other than Steve Reich‘s masterpiece, “Music for 18 Musicians.” This iconic composition will transport you to a musical dimension like no other, with its intricate rhythms and rich textures drawing inspiration from musical traditions spanning the globe.

But that’s not all! We’re thrilled to announce a special treat for your intellectual curiosity. Join us for an illuminating introduction and lecture by Christoph Schuller, a distinguished Musicologist hailing from the University of Munich.

Christoph will delve deep into the heart of Minimal Music, sharing his expertise and insights on the theme of “Minimal Music: New Music Inclusive.”

At its very core, Minimal Music is all about inclusion, and Christoph’s lecture will reveal this powerful truth in two fascinating ways.

Firstly, Minimal Music is a genre that draws inspiration from diverse musical cultures across the globe. Steve Reich’s “Music for 18 Musicians” takes its form from the ethereal Organa of the Middle Ages, while its intricate polyrhythmic structures are inspired by the vibrant rhythms of West African patterns.

Secondly, Minimal Music is music for everyone! Unlike many other genres, it doesn’t require you to bring any prerequisites or prior knowledge to the table. Minimal Music simplifies complex musical elements into something universally comprehensible, allowing you to dive into the experience with your heart and soul.

So, what are you waiting for? You are cordially invited to join us on the 30th of September for a night of musical enchantment, intellectual exploration, and pure, unadulterated joy.

Don’t miss this chance to be a part of something extraordinary. Let the waves of Minimal Music wash over you, and let your spirit soar as you become a part of the musical tapestry!

See you there!
