Christian Klinkenberg

Delighted to announce that I successfully defended my PhD-thesis on the 29 may 2020!

My thanks go to all the people who supported me and contributed to my projects during the last five years. Without you all this would not have been possible!



The live recording of the opera "The Glacier" was completely mixed at the Bauer Studios (Ludwigsburg, Germany) by Philipp Heck and will be released on 29 May 2020 at Neuklang.

Painter Marc Kirschvink has now completed all 119 pictures of the graphic score of the opera "The Glacier". The pitch is notated exclusively by note heads and accidentals on the lower quarter of the screen, sometimes supplemented by short written explanations or pictograms. These note heads are linked to a corresponding graphic element on the upper part of the screen by using the same color.

Do you want to know what these pictures sound like? The world premiere will take place on October 25. This will be followed by 6 more performances.
