For the impuls Academy 2019 Simon Løffler offers a Special Program not only for composers, but also musicians, performers, sound- and multimedia-artists, organized as Workshop and Laboratory for experimentation as well as realization of individual (and possibly also group-) projects. Artistic approaches integrating aspects such as visual, performative, installative, … , or also electronically driven ones, will be paid particular attention and open up new perspectives also for the core of the composition process itself. Besides, the role-model of a composer in a traditional sense might be questioned and composers find themselves again as part of a collegue's work and its realization. Thus also the topic of collaboration and teamworking will be touched, last but not least by sharing time, space, infrastructure, ideas and know-how amongst others.
The program is designed as group activity leading towards a final presentation of the process and works developed.
