WATCH THE TRAILER

The Cottbusser Chor is a vocal ensemble and performance group. It has been in existence since the beginning of 2014. The singers of the ensemble speak 13 languages and come from different musical contexts. The algorithm-based compositions in which the choir specializes preserve this diversity. It is precisely this audibility of languages, gestures, accents and accentuations that is the choir’s strength. Since its foundation with the premiere of “The News Blues”, the choir has given concerts at Maerzmusik Berlin 2016, Hangar Bicocca Milan 2016, for documenta14 Radio 2017, SAVVY Contemporary & Zeitzone in 2019, among others. 

The group was also involved in film scores for “Miete essen Seele auf” by Angelika Levi (Arte 2016), Weitermachen Sanssouci by Max Linz (Berlinale 2018).
