BORIS HAUF
All that nothing causing all that thing

Music is often used in various fields of creative work, but rarely is it reflected upon as a tool in itself. Through exemplary case studies my masterclasses / seminars / workshops investigate music as a generative and compositional tool and begin exploring the role it can play in other fields of creative work.
Engaging with music not only emotionally, but analytically and critically can inform and encourage further inquiry. The many things that are used in our work have multiple inherent layers which can all be exposed. Once we’ve developed an inquisitive relationship to these things we can apply their structure and form as well as derive techniques for our compositional and creative process.
