Stella Louise Göke studied classical singing in the Netherlands and graduated with a Bachelor of Music in 2014. Since graduating, she has lived in her adopted city of Cologne and works as a freelance singer and actress in a wide range of projects across Europe. She has been studying music education in the Master of Arts programme at the University of Music and Dance in Cologne since 2019. Artistic research allows the young soprano to combine two passions of her artistic work: performing on stage as a singer, experiencing music, and scientifically penetrating these processes and discovering new, previously unimagined things. 

The week in Oslo was so special for me because although everything went on Zoom (what can be very exhausting) we had a lot of time. There was space to breath, to let impressions sink and to give room to own thoughts. There were lectures from people and very interesting projects to talk about. But there were also experiments with funny things to do. Although I was in my room I started to sing and to explore my instrument in different ways. How do you reflect? Of course you can think about stuff but what else can you do? What material can you use? How can you tell somebody that you reflect without using your voice? And especially for me as a singer it was very interesting to start reflecting without my voice. Because I am used to use my voice all the time. They talked about and taught me to be open to use different materials. So I started to use a tomato. I reflected on the fact when I walk around I sometimes do not feel secure and I feel vulnerable. Especially on stage. And so I choose a tomato: It seems to be very strong, but it is soft and when you smash it, it exploses in every direction. And I kind of reflected on my thoughts of precarity by smashing tomatoes.

A rich learning experience to further develop and apply valuable critical thinking skills, counterpoint knowledge and programming to artistic research!

Laurenz Gemmer’s artistic focus lies on piano improvisation, in which he has cultivated a unique, intuitive style of playing that is characterized by a crossing of stylistic borders while constantly striving for authentic musical quality. His studies with Paulo Álvares, Florian Weber and Hubert Nuß at the music colleges in Cologne and Osnabrück provided a thorough musical foundation in the areas of New Music, Jazz and “classical music”, thereby creating tensions among which Gemmer’s particular artistic expression evolves. He performs in and works for various band formations, dance and theatre productions, all of which are striving for unique musical expression through innovative sound timbres, custom-made compositions and improvisational spaces on the cross roads between musical genres. In a second musical identity, Gemmer is working on the fusion with a prepared semi-acoustic vintage grand piano (CP70) and software.
Gemmer teaches at the music colleges in Freiburg and Cologne.

Jonathan Impett is Director of Research at the Orpheus Institute and Associate Professor at Middlesex University (London, UK). Jonathan’s professional and research activities cover many aspects of contemporary musical practice, as trumpet player, composer and theorist. He also leads the research cluster “Music, Thought and Technology” at the Orpheus Institute. His research is concerned with the discourses and practices of contemporary musical creativity, particularly the nature of the contemporary technologically-situated musical artefact. In the field of historical performance, he is a long-standing member of both The Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century and The Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra. He is also a member of the experimental chamber ensemble Apartment House. As a soloist he has given premieres of works by composers including Scelsi, Berio, Harvey and Finnissy.

As an improviser he has played with musicians as divers as Paul Dunmall and Amit Chaudhuri. Work in the space between composition and improvisation has led to continuous research in the areas of interactive systems and interfaces. The current ‘active sound space’ project uses ALife populations of wave models to create interactive works combining aspects of composition and sound art. A monograph on the music of Luigi Nono has recently been published by Routledge, and Jonathan is currently working on a project considering the nature of the contemporary musical object, ‘The work without content’.
