Ein Traum von Weltmusik

With works by Karlheinz Stockhausen, Hans Otte, Peter Michael Hamel, Simeon ten Holt, Grete von Zieritz / Concerts and lectures with Ensemble Heimatlieder aus Deutschland, François Tusques, Jutta Koether and David Toop

“World Music” was actually a West German idea – the term turns up for the first time in the framework of the art exhibition at the Olympic Games of 1972. At the time, many electronic musicians were getting interested in Eastern sounds and  wanted to expand their understanding of art by turning back to folklore, by opening up to amateurs. What do these compositions mean today, where the world has arrived into the immigration republic of Germany? How are they understood by musicians who now make World Music? Musicians from the project Heimatlieder aus Deutschland deal with these compositions of German and European minimal music from the 1970s. Another model of World Music was being developed at the same time by the French free jazz pianist François Tusques. He will talk about it and perform solo improvisations. The British music writer David Toop and the artist and critic Jutta Koether will make a fresh examination of the topic World Music in lectures.
