city sound artist bonn 2024

For this year’s project, artists Miki Yui and Stefan Schneider, who live and work in Düsseldorf, have been appointed City Sound Artists Bonn 2024 by the Beethoven Foundation. In close collaboration with researchers from the Institute of Linguistics, Media and Musicology at the University of Bonn and the University of Cape Coast (Ghana), the two will focus on the West African country of Ghana, partly because of the central role of communal thinking and action in the local traditional music cultures there. After two research residencies in Ghana, Miki Yui and Stefan Schneider will first present their artistic results in Cape Coast, Bonn’s project partner city. After that, they will  develop a larger artistic project, which they will present in September 2024 at the Beethovenfest in Bonn.
