Carola Bauckholt's imaginative further development of “New Music Theatre” – founded by her teacher Mauricio Kagel – occupies a very special aesthetic position in contemporary music. The boundaries between visual arts, musical theatre and concert music are often dissolving, the everyday and the incidental are brought into focus, comic elements, the bizarre and unexpected as well as noisy sounds from the environment and nature are not excluded, perception and understanding are questioned. During her workshop at impuls, musical, intermedial and music-theatrical ideas will be developed for open-air sites, followed by collective realization and reflection of site-specific short „instant“ compositions.

In 2021 impuls welcomes not only Schallfeld Ensemble, but also Black Page Orchestra as Ensemble in Residency and Junior Tutor at its Academy. Both with individual musicians and the entire formation, several special programs or calls were developed for impuls Academy participants, workshops, readings, rehearsals, presentations and two concerts of the Black Page Orchestra at the impuls Festival are realized at impuls. In the present concert, which is also the closing event of this year's festival, it not only realizes three world premieres by impuls participants, but also presents the world premiere of a part of François Sarhan's 2020 Log Books with the participation of the composer and impuls tutor.

Black Page Orchestra, founded 2014 in Vienna, is an ensemble for radical and uncompromising music of current times. The name derives from Frank Zappa’s composition „the black page“, a piece which score is due to the high density of notes and musical events nearly a black paper. Beside this clear aesthetical approach the ensemble focuses on compositions using electronics, video and different technologies in an artistic context as well as pieces with performative character.
