A project with Pulsar Festival 2019 where composers at the Royal Danish Academy of Music travelled to schools around Denmark to talk about new music - the techniques, thought processes and rehearsals. We spoke about the festival at large, focusing on the specific concerts that each group of students would attend. After the presentation, the students were able to listen to pose their own questions and talk about present and past developments in new music.

This was a really wonderful project that opened up a whole new audience to the diversity that new music presents. A small group of students was asked to stay at the end of the concert and talk about what they heard in the music.
