Cooperation with Festival Junger Künstler Bayreuth [Bayreuth Young Artists Festival]
The aim of the Bayreuth Young Artists Festival is to bring young musicians together from many parts of the world and offer them artistic training in various master classes as well as chamber music, choral and orchestral projects. In 2006 the festival signed a cooperation agreement with the Robert Schumann Hochschule Düsseldorf. Ever since, students in the Audio and Video and Music and Mediabachelor's programs have regularly taken part in the festival by attending 3- to 4-day audio engineering workshops. Not only do these workshops bring musicians together from a wide range of countries, the exchange of experience in all areas of popular music production is also a key area of focus.
Once again in 2014, twelve IMM students were able to gain experience running projects and recording classical music at the Bayreuth Young Artists Festival. The IMM team was coordinated by two Music and Media majors, Jeff Schiltz and Kai Detlefsen. Matthias Kulow, an Audio and Video major, was responsible for completing an image film about the broad variety of work by IMM students at the festival.
