Berlin composes – your personality counts.

Due to an illness in the team, today’s LAB 2 unfortunately has to be cancelled at short notice. We will keep you informed about the follow-up events in November and December on our website and in the newsletter, for which you can register here.
Thank you for your understanding!

What would it sound like if you were a modern Beethoven? What melody would your composition have? Which beat would be your trademark?

Whether INFJ, ENTP or ENFJ, whether musical or not: In LAB2 of the project you will learn how the Beethoven personality test, the Trickster Orchestra and kling klang klong can be used to create your very own compositions.
Come by and discover the music theater of the future with us!


As part of the project, Neuköllner Oper, the trans-traditional Trickster Orchestra and kling klang klong, one of the leading studios for sound research, are developing a new tool with which anyone can become a composer! You don’t need a degree in composition or musical talent, you just need a personality. By answering a personality test, whose answers are linked to musical modules, a unique one-of-a-kind composition is created. This crowd composing tool will be activated in the third LAB of in November. Your resulting compositions will be exhibited in the form of scores at the Neuköllner Oper in December, as well as heard in the music theater production DER MANN DER SICH BEETHOVEN NANNTE in December.

Free admission. Please make a reservation in advance via our Ticketshop.

New music, jazz, electronica and free improvisation, classical music traditions from around the world – Trickster Orchestra weaves these diverse genres into a new, radically contemporary music with jazz at its heart. Under the direction of Cymin Samawatie and Ketan Bhatti, the orchestra uses traditional European, Asian as well as electronic instruments to create its unique musical language. The collective, which performs in changing lineups, includes some 40 outstanding musicians and singers from almost all genres, and its music transcends traditional demarcations between genres and cultures that are now prevalent across geographical, “ethnic” and temporal orders.Trickster Orchestra was founded in 2013 and has performed in Europe and West Asia, including at the Festival für Modernes Hören Düsseldorf, Jazzfest Berlin, Silk Road Festival Baku and Modara Fest für Zeitgenössische Musik.
