Program description

Experimental tape music in the classroom: Pupils of two primary school classes in Allschwil were together with musicians of EPhB on the hunt for sounds  and recorded their findings on tape. Framed by several solo pieces, interpreted by musicians of the EPhB, the eight small sound etudes, which the students composed in groups, were performed in the concert.
