*** Open Call *** DEADLINE DEC 5

guterstoff is a festival for experimental music and performance. Our acts range from performative installations and concerts to interactive formats in digital space and guided, collective experiences. Our focus is on the interweaving of disciplines and the joint discovery of new work processes in artistic collaboration. Each year, we thus develop works with artists that are led by the spirit of experimental, boundary-breaking formats.

For the next edition of the festival that will take place in Cologne in autumn of 2023, we are currently looking for artists from all disciplines who would like to participate in our interdisciplinary projects.
We offer a young, professional team to work with, an artist fee and travel/lodging costs for the duration of the work and festival phases.

Please keep in mind that we are a platform for emerging artists who are interested in interdisciplinary collaboration. We do not aim to present individual artistic positions, but we are focusing on the process of collective creation across disciplines.

WHO are we looking for:

Artists of any discipline (fine arts, music, performance, drama, dance, game design ..) There is no age limit, however we do consider the festival to be a platform for emerging professional artists. We cannot invite already existing groups or collectives.

WHAT do you need to apply:

Please send us work samples of yours (max. 3 links to online material), and a short letter of motivation in which you describe your views on interdisciplinary collaboration, if and what kind of experience you have in that field and how you could imagine to work with a group of people (max. 2000 characters) via email (address below).

HOW will we work with you:

All invited artists will take part in a residency (10 days in autumn 2023), in which they will create a new work in collaboration with an interdisciplinary group of other guterstoff artists. This work will be presented at the guterstoff festival in autumn 2023 in Cologne.

DEADLINE for submissions: 5th of December 2022

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions!

Tristan Braun works as a director, musician and performer after having studied stage directing at Hochschule für Musik „Hanns Eisler“ Berlin. The variety of tools and contexts he works with find their foundation in his aim to transform and blend historical, traditional with contemporary material into new forms. In his main work as a stage director he applies these principles both in classical opera at places like Staatsoper Hamburg or Bayreuth Festival as well as in free productions, e.d. at radialsystem Berlin. As a baroque violinist, he plays with ensembles such as Concerto Köln, lautten compagney or La Banda among persuing contemporary and chamber music projects. Not only since he worked with choreographer and director Sasha Waltz, contemporary dance plays a big part in his approach to the stage. His goal to connect different art forms, finding a new understanding of contemporary culture and the role of the audience in a live performance led to projects such as the well-received music theatre installation MEMBRA which he produced, directed and presented at Kühlhaus Berlin as a multi-layered response to the first experiences of the pandemic.

Anna van Eck is a sculptural designer exploring the boundaries of functionality within products. The human mind tends to respond to problems or challenges when they are right in front. In an age of climate change and many other challenges, this is life-threatening. Design is her tool to deal with social matters. Trained in applied Arts and Design as well as in crafts (goldsmith) her interactive products irritate at first sight but lead to an emotional learning experience.

For the sound artist and architect Nathalie Brum (Atelier Brum) sound and space form a unit. Nathalie sees her site-specific installation as an instrument for new forms of spatial perception and appropriation. She transforms the noises of hidden infrastructures into acousmatic compositions: two-dimensional, flowing and merging with the space. She is currently based in Cologne.

Benjamin Grau is a musician and composer. In his own music, he draws inspiration from his earlier musical socialization, which took place primarily in the realm of popular music. In his creative process, he isolates specific sounds, structures and processes that evoke a strong, visceral reaction in him and explores them, extends them, pushes them to extremes that bear little resemblance to their original context. Benni is currently based in Cologne.

Happy to announce that I’ll be giving a workshop this Saturday (29 May) on the occasion of the Guterstoff Festival. It starts at 6pm, will be held in English and participation is FREE (however pre-registration via their website is necessary:)! Link to Facebook event below:

https://fb.me/e/KrlMRzO9

Originally I should have played at the after party but due to the ongoing sanitary crisis we ended up converting my performance into a workshop. The title is “Walk the line - approaching techno from a composer’s point of view and composition as a techno DJ”. It will touch on topics such as composition principles of techno music and practical music production tips. I’ll also analyse some of my own tracks (at least I’ll try to haha). Furthermore, l’ll give an outline of my musical background and education and how my composition studies influence my productions and compositions. Participants are welcome to present their own techno tracks for feedback. (If you would like to present a track of yours, please send it to [email protected] until 29.05, 12am. Thank you:)
