Accompanied by teams each consisting of a teacher, a composer and a university student, they investigate sounds, arrange them into compositions and share their discoveries with the public. Thereby, QuerKlang brings together three different working environments, the world of the school, of university education and that of professional musicians and composers and thrives on the tensions between those worlds.

Further information:
