Unrest 62/22

Goethe-Institut Tokyo’s 60th Anniversary

Unrest 62|22: Grenzfrequenz & Telemusicking

As part of the unrest 62|22 series to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Goethe-Institut Tokyo, a creative musical encounter took place in late May: bidirectional electronic live concerts were held at the OAG-Haus in Tokyo and the Japanese-German Center in Berlin. Telemusik, a 1966 electronic composition by Karlheinz Stockhausen, was played first in Tokyo, then streamed to Berlin: the musical material was sent back and forth as a mutual source of modulation and fused into a shared piece of music in an experimental finale. The concerts were planned and curated by the Teichmann Brothers and Makoto Oshiro to serve as a new interpretation of the electronic music scene of the 1960s, when the Goethe-Institut Tokyo was founded.

Musical Youth Exchange

EU-Projekt You(Th) Can Sing!

Music as a language of understanding, overcoming prejudices and exchange on the subject of European values: In this spirit, an EU project called You(th) can sing! seeks to promote a trilateral youth exchange between members of the Egyptian PASCH Choir with their partner choir at the Wolfratshausen Music School in Germany and the Hermann Sudermann Gymnasium choir in Klaipeda, Lithuania. After the final concert of this first youth exchange in Germany in early June, the music project will be continued in Cairo in 2023.
