Between primeval noise and harmony of the spheres: the music of Hermann Nitsch

28. - 30.09.2018

The roots of Hermann Nitsch’s Theatre of Orgies and Mysteries are primarily philosophical and musical. Nitsch’s musical oeuvre, which is an interesting blend of Anton Bruckner and John Cage, comprises not only “performance music” but also symphonies, ensemble and organ works. Based on selected audio samples, those present at this seminar will be able to become immersed in Nitsch’s cosmic/ tragic world of sound. 

The workshop is run by Dr. Leopoldo Siano, musicologist and lecturer at the University of Cologne.
