Together with students from the Jazz Institute of the University of Music and Performing Arts Munich as well as other guests, the renowned jazz musicians and lecturers Andreas Kissenbeck and Michael Keul will take you on a trip into the world of jazz. Colourful, exciting and varied – for beginners, experts and enthusiasts alike.
Jazz and the Universe
What do gravitational waves sound like? Can you make music with them? How do musicians deal with phenomena like time, chaos, aesthetics, symmetry and so on? Do stars and planets have a sound? And if so, what sensations does it evoke in us? Thinking about questions like these, one discovers surprising similarities between jazz and the universe. Among the jazz standards the students will perform are Crescent, Equinox and Stardust.
