Kosmos Percussion

For Children Aged 6 and Above, Teenagers and Adults

In this workshop, curious kids, teenagers and adults alike embark on a sound expedition around the world, from the Caribbean to India and beyond. Music is played everywhere and it always sounds different.

And because trying out is known to be more fun than mere listening, all featured percussion instruments that have travelled here from lands far away may be played by participants – under the guidance of professionals, of course. Previous knowledge is welcome, but not a requirement. After all, it’s about the rhythm played by all participants together developed along the journey, step by step, stroke by stroke.

Kosmos Gamelan

For Children Aged 10 and Above, Teenagers and Adults

Gamelan music originated many centuries ago on the Indonesian islands of Bali and Java. It is always played in a group, on gongs, metallophones, drums, xylophones, flutes and stringed instruments. The unique sound of a gamelan ensemble fascinated the composer Claude Debussy, and still has many fans in Europe. The Elbphilharmonie owns a particularly beautiful ensemble of gamelan instruments, which participants can explore in a one-day workshop.

Kreativ Composition

For Children Aged 8+, Teenagers and Adults

It's not that difficult to compose your own piece of music – and it's a lot of fun. In this workshop the participants are given a playful introduction to the art of composition. Everyday objects and various ways of producing sound are on hand for experimentation and improvisation. This yields the first ideas, which soon evolve into an original piece of music with a little professional help.

Duration: 2 hours & 30 minutes
Venue: Elbphilharmonie Kaistudios

Kreativ Modular Synthesizer

For Teenagers Aged 16+ and Adults

Analogue synthesizers changed the face of pop music in the 20th century – and they are very much in vogue again today. Under the guidance of a genuine synthesizer specialist, the workshop participants learn how to produce interesting sounds, noises and melodies using electricity. No fewer than twelve analogue, modular synthesizers are on hand for people to experiment and improvise on, gradually creating a composition of their own.
