Treating each component as an equal partner, Dirk Rothbrust has curated a diverse programme of chamber music for electronic percussion and keyboard instruments. Karlheinz Stockhausen's compositions for percussion instruments from the 1950s and 60s are ground-breaking, trend-setting and still highly topical. From a simple 'crack' Stockhausen created in ›Kontakte‹ (1958-60) a completely new universe of sounds, frequencies, tones and structures - the first trio in music history for percussion, piano and tape. In John Cage's "Child of Tree", on the other hand, plants are used to produce sound. And in Steffen Krebber's duo for Moog synthesizer and drum set, the instruments filter each other electronically. 


Karlheinz Stockhausen - REFRAIN (1959) for 3 players

Steffen Krebber - Amphiference (2019) for drum set, minimoog and two amplifiers

John Cage – Child of Tree (1975) for percussion solo (with amplified plants)
