New Music in Church

Buddhist temples and Christian churches are often venues for interesting art events. Composers of contemporary music increasingly benefit from these opportunities. St. Peter is the art station, a place of a unique dialogue between faith and liturgy and contemporary art and new music. This late-Gothic church space, remodeled again and again over the centuries, is now largely free of both artworks and pews – an empty space of spirituality. Contemporary artists utilize this emptiness to design their new ideas, again and again. Theirs works, given over to the congregation for a time, confront us with existential questions, and inspire the life of the faithful during service. (From the church’s information page)
