2004


Installation of our internet platform


In only one year we constructed our until this day very successful internet platform. We still count several thousand visitors every month. The reason for this is certainly the very high value of our links, the editions and the essays in the internet academy.


2005


First slow listening concerts


In spring of 2005 the ensemble Amarcord performed our first slow listening project De plus en plus, based on a mass of Johannes Ockeghem. The concerts took place during the presentation of our foundation in the Anatomiesaal of the Charité in Berlin and during the festival of ancient music in Quedlinburg.


DNA in concert


The foundation funded a presentation of Thilo Krigar's DNA put into music...


Slow listening concerts in the Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler, Berlin 


Since 2005 the foundation sponsors a series of lunch time concerts presenting one composition first explained and then performed once again.

Performances of this project in Berlin (Heilig-Kreuz-Kirche) and during the A-capella-festival in Leipzig

2007


This year we concentrated on expanding our internet platform and prepared some projects for 2008.

2010


Et ecce terrae motus during MaerzMusik (Berliner Festspiele)


On March 27 and 28 our until now biggest project based on a mass of Antoine Brumel was performed during the festival MaerzMusik (Berliner Festspiele), supported by Hauptstadtkulturfonds with 30.000 Euros. This project undelines our interdisciplinary approach and shows how very old music can still have an impact today. The concert was registered by Kulturradio RBB and a film was produced. 


Second Renaissance Music festival in Reutlingen


 We funded a concert with improvised music "Super librum cantare".


2011 


New editions and installation of an online player


There are a lot of new and very important editons plublished online. In a very short time we were able to make available most important sources of secular music which have not been available for decades.
Also, we have installed a player so that it is possible to listen to the music online.


2012


Et Ecce Terrae Motus


The biggest project of our foundatione has been performed three times this year:


September: Festival Les Ephémères, Rennes
November: 3rd Renaissance Festival, Reutlingen
                Festival surround! 
Concertgebouw Brugge


Editions and Library


Once again we have enlarged our editions online. There is now the major part of the secular repertory of the second half of te 15th century available.
Moreover, we have enlarged our library considerably.


Viol project


The foundation has ordered a set of three viols in the style of the 15th century by Richard Earle, Basel. The instruments will be lent to interested musicians for concerts and used for our own recording of chansons by Antoine Busnois (Ensemble Leones).


 


 2013


Dance project Lully dansé - Lully (ge)tanzt


We will develop a new big project connecting the principles of slow listening to dance. Lully's opera Acis et Galatée will be the basis for a theatrical research of movement, rhythm and expression. Our partners will be Radialsystem V and Institut für Bewegungsforschung of Prof. Brandstetter from FU Berlin. We work on a chamber version to prepare basic elements for this huge project. We are still looking for more partners as the budget with orchestra, dancers and singers will be quite important.


Viol project


Unfortunately, our lute maker Richard Earle had to interrupt the work on our instruments due to illness. We will have to postpone this project to 2016. 


Editions


The foundation has published a heretofore unknown 6 voice mass of Antoine Brumel. We try to improve the software of the editing program - it's very hard to find a knew software expert!


2014-2015


Many more editions, facsimile sources, essays of the founder etc. in our Academy section




2016


Josquin's Im-Mortality


Our fourth project is created during the ION Festival in Nürnberg. More concerts will take place in Berlin and Brugge.
