What radical changes in music will characterize the 21st century? On the occasion of the 250th birthday of Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827), one of the most innovative and influential composers of his epoch, the #bebeethoven project invites twelve young artists to explore such questions by developing, testing and presenting artistic experiments and projects. Together with project lead PODIUM Esslingen and six renowned partners – CTM Festival, Ensemble Resonance, Rotterdam Opera, Radialsystem V, Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich, and ZKM Karlsruhe – these six fellows will experiment with new technologies and develop aesthetic innovations. A Berlin Kick-off event will take place Friday 6 October at Silent Green starting with an afternoon symposium that culminates with a concert in the evening.
