for contemporary and experimental music
Trying out new concepts. Playing with the connections between space, time, the artists and the audience. As an integral part of the work of art. But also reaching a new, young audience – by taking them seriously;
Understanding that team work between all participants is fundamental. Discussing, arguing, holding one’s ground, learning from one another, appreciating personalities and bringing them together in the artistic process;
Going out on the search to find playable places and understanding these places as living components: with their specific demands, qualities and weaknesses – discovering and utilizing them. Confronting ourselves and the audience with questions, for which new answers still need to be found; This is what we do and what we strive for with great joy.
We are Kollektiv3:6Koeln for contemporary and experimental music, founded in 2017. The collective is consists of nine permanent members – instrumentalists and composers – all of which received their degree at the Cologne University of Music. Our focus is not on performing a repertoire, but on realizing new compositions and projects.
The Kollektiv3:6Koeln is supported and sponsored by Deutscher Musikrat.
