Association


Klangnetz e.V. is an association founded in 2003 with the aim of supporting
young composers who work in Berlin. Klangnetz has built up a network of
composers, musicians, multidisciplinary artists, musicologists and public-
relation-managers from Germany, Iceland, Switzerland, Israel, Spain, Sweden,
the Netherlands, Japan, China, the USA, Brazil, and Argentina as well as with
other artists like painters, writers, dancers and designers.
Since 2005 Klangnetz and adapter started their close cooperation with very
successful concerts introducing new ensemble pieces, composition for singers,
and solo-pieces. Klangnetz prepares every concert with a distinctive concept
that attempts to broaden the traditional form of classical concerts and
experiment with unusual modes of presenting contemporary music among
other arts. In particular, a close aesthetic junction between artists, designers,
dancers, writers, musicians and composers is a main feature of the association’s
identity. In addition, Klangnetz has already invited musicians and composers
from Argentina, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Poland, the Czech Republic,
Belarus, Sweden, Israel, Austria, the United States and Iceland to Berlin and
other German cities to get their pieces performed by adapter or other ensembles
like Kwartludium, Curious Chamber Players or Konvergence and to enter
a productive discussion with young German composers and musicians.
In its interdisciplinary and international projects Klangnetz and adapter care for
a as much precise as passionate interpretation of the pieces which are treated
in respect to their individual structure and aesthetic quality.
A main interest of the institution is to support profoundly a close, deeply
motivated and excellent network of young composers and musicians around
the globe.

Since 2004 Klangnetz has been supported – amongst others – by the
Karl-Hofer-Society, the Institute for New Music Berlin, the Hauptstadtkulturfonds,

Landschaft, the Fondation Nestlé pour l’Art, the Artephilia-Foundation, the
