÷ George Gruntz Octet : »Magic of the Flute«, Sat, 05/07/2005 :: In The Magic of the Flute, composer George Gruntz and librettist Peter O. Chotjewitz have created a new jazz opera. Title and cast might be based on Mozartís famous work, but this new opera makes no other reference to it. For this is an entirely autonomous work, with elements of twelve-tone, jazz, calypso, and funk, which unlike many other attempts at jazz opera, really does deserve the name. As well as the written parts, the instrumentalists have plenty of opportunities to play solos.

÷ The Picture's Image : »Scientific Visualisation as a Composite«, Sat-Sun, 05/07/-05/08/2005 :: Medicine and the natural sciences have recently witnessed the emergence of a new version of the iconoclastic controversy. Not only has talk of an image-based medicine or of the imaging of the natural sciences provoked fierce dispute in these fields, but the humanities and social sciences too are increasingly engaging with the function of images in the production and organisation of knowledge. The conference, »The Picture's Image. Scientific Visualisation as a Composite« examines the role of images in the formation of knowledge. The panel includes Olaf Breidbach, Manfred Faßler, Hans Ulrich Reck, Gunnar Schmidt and others.
