Event Details

Welcome to our monthly meeting for makam-based improvisation!
Once a month on Sunday, we will meet at noon to play and improvise together in a given makam or two for two full hours. The improvisation will be lead by Tayfun Guttstadt on the Ney. Theoretical aspects will be worked on, too, but the focus is on playing together and feel the mood of the respective makam. Typical forms of oriental music will also be introduced, everything by playing and feeling.

All instruments including voice and all levels welcome.  

Dates until January 2021:
 29.3. | 19.4. | 17.5. | 14.6. | 16.8. | 13.9. | 18.10. | 15.11. | 13.12. | 17.1.2021

Can take place again from 17.5. (for the time being only as a small group)!

Event Details

Experience yourself dancing! Reinvent yourself! Discover the immense power of your gestures and steps!

Janine Schneiders self-created method no thrills is a technique of multidimensional awareness using the direct effect of one’s physical action on spirit and soul. Just by taking a basic position you get in touch with the essential leaving complications of everyday life far behind.


Art of Reduction
unpretentious yet beautiful
I look at the body in motion without rating it.

Playing this place
every single gesture turns into dance
Constant revision of the entire musculoskeletal system.

Breathtaking art of movement of art
exemplary expressiveness
the classical grand adage makes it clear: sensing creates radiation.

Never ending arms and legs
stretching, reaching into space
once literally meant
for figure and room were not one.

Janine Schneider, 2019

Can take place as a small group – despite Corona!

Why Improvisation?

Improvisation offers the opportunity to invent music, and to do so without notation. Moreover, this form of creativity is special because it takes place in a group setting. Like in a good conversation, the players develop ideas, which they would not have been able to find otherwise, by inspiring each other.

In the exploratorium we focus on so-called free improvisation, which needs neither scales nor harmony or rhythm schemes. The sound as such is the basis of music invention.

Lerning improvising and improvising learning is about collecting experiences in forming music, understanding music „from the inside out“ and getting involved in the musical flow. That requires alertness in every moment and intense listening to the other players as well as to the collective musical process.

Free improvisation means taking responsibility and contributing your own impulses while simultaneously adapting to a collective at any moment. Learning this is learning for life. To experience this in concert means to participate in a special adventure.
