Collaboration between European Spallation Source (Weisend) and the Malmö Academy of Music (Edgerton)

Project: Network

Project Details


Since pre-covid times John Weisend of the European Spallation Source (ESS) and Mike Edgerton of the Malmö Academy of Music have begun a cooperation to explore artistic, scientific and educational connections.

The composition, ‘Der Rufer’, written for and performed by the Bremer Schlagzeugensemble is the first tangible result from this cooperation. This composition was influenced and generated from information gleaned from cryogenic engineering work conducted at ESS.

In this panel discussion Weisend and Edgerton will be joined by the Professor of percussion at Hochschule für Künste Bremen, Olaf Tzschoppe to engage in dialogue regarding artistic and scientific methods and the potential for crossdisciplinary inspiration.
