Ultima Academy 2013

Contemporary music is a complex field in constant transformation: increasingly, new media and other art forms are integrated into musical practice, changing the way we make music, the way we perceive it and how we talk about it. This year, we will present new ways of staging music and give a retro-/prospective look into instrument design.
