Art and music in interaction.

The films originate from the four film-making universities in the network of the Hessian Film and Media Academy (see below) and are performed live with newly composed and improvised music in several concerts . Artist tandems of film and music students present their films in combination with composed or improvised music. Since the filmmakers themselves sometimes even participate in the live scoring, both experimental-performative and partially improvised results are created, which interweave the arts in innovative ways. Also from the  MfSCreativeLab, a cooperation between the Kunsthochschule Kassel and the Institute for Music of the University of Kassel, there are again contributions.

After the restrictions due to the Corona pandemic, this concert is the first in the concert hall of the Institute of Music.
