ONpaper: How do I become more creative?

»music management & economy«

A muscle training for creativity from work to chance

The term creativity is on everyone’s lips again these days. Our fast-moving times challenge
us all to keep coming up with new ideas in order to remain surprising and fresh. Creativity
is an unwieldy word, says director Christoph Marthaler.

How does it work not to stumble over one’s own well-tried solutions again and again, but to
find new ones with relish, for the dramaturgy of a concert, a meeting, the design of a
speech or an announcement or the choice of a venue… It’s not so hard! We have to put
ourselves on and into the game and exercise our creactive muscles. Norbert Trawöger
wants to bring some strategies and ideas into play in a fun way!

Norbert Trawöger categorically eludes any category. “You don’t look like a classical classical musician!” said the Belgian journalist Philippe Manche about the multifaceted flute flute player, who comes from a family where Franz Schubert was already “most unabashedly “most uninhibitedly, as if at home” (quotation from Schubert’s letter to his parents) in Gmunden in 1825. was a guest in Gmunden. Trawöger is Artistic Director of the Bruckner Orchestra Linz, artistic director of the Kepler Salon and, as Bruckner Ambassador of the Province of Upper Austria, the artistic coordinator of the 200th anniversary year of Anton Bruckner’s birth in 2024. Most recently, his book “Spiel” was published in the essay series “übermorgen” by the Viennese publishing house Kremayr & Scheriau publishing house. The “sought-after instigator of creative thinking and action” (A-list) lives “ingeniously obliquely” (OÖN) in constantly changing artistic states of being, always restlessly speaking out on society, art and culture, playing the flute and culture, plays the flute and with his children. www.eNTe.me

About ONpaper
digital workshop series by inm berlin / field notes and ON Cologne

In this year’s online workshop series ONpaper, which we are again organizing together with the initiative neue musik / field notes experts will teach basic skills for working in the independent scene.

Under the heading »Project Funding« we will get you ready for grant applications in autumn with introductions to the funding landscapes of Berlin and Cologne, application writing, or accounting.

In a second block of workshops, topics such as time management, ensemble management, as well as insights into the music business, will direct our attention to the world around the music stands. Even if terms such as »business« and »time management« can seem daunting at first, the modules will be designed to be vivd and interactive so that both experienced musicians and newcomers can feel at ease.

The workshops are aimed at artists from the independent contemporary music scene in Cologne and Berlin and are free of charge. We ask for binding registrations.
