Since 1993, the Maulwerker ensemble has concentrated on works for experimental vocal music and bordering artistic fields, especially different types of music theatre. The ensemble evolved from Dieter Schnebel’s experimental music courses at the University of the Arts, with the name stemming from Schnebel’s work Maulwerke. With their extensive repertoire, the Maulwerker are frequently guests at international contemporary music festivals. All ensemble members are also active as soloists.
