"BREATH – a concertante installation” is based on the correspondent piece by Mauricio Kagel and aims at challenging and extending the traditional relationship between audience and artist. The program aims at exploring breath in its different forms of appearance. - the selected works deal in an intense and directly physical way with the breath of the musician.
Caroline Hausen studied recorder from 2007 until 2011 with Jeremias Schwarzer at the academy of music in Nuremberg. Besides her studies she took master classes with Karel van Steenhoven, Lucia Mense, Dorothee Oberlinger and Maurice Steger.
From 2011 until 2013 she passed the master degree course for Contemporary Music at the academy of music in Nuremberg.
In the context of her master theses, she began to be concerned with the interaction of contemporary music and other art forms (visual arts, video, dance); this resulted – cooperating with the choreographer Barbara Bess an the visual artist Elli Velliou – in the concertante installation Ophelia’s ruin, which was performed first in July 2013 in the exhibition hall of the academy of fine arts in Nuremberg; the commissioned composition Dialogues Sauvages by Ansgar Beste originated as part of this project.
She gave concerts in Israel and Switzeland.
