Mikroklang is a project by Annette Krebs.

One focus of her musical work is the exploration of new sounds and playing techniques. For this purpose, she develops instruments and arrangements in which quiet sounds and noises are “microscoped”, i.e. highly amplified by microphones and in part digitally transformed. The resulting new sounds form the source material for her compositions and concerts.

The focus of her teaching is on helping others to find and develop their own musical listening preferences and forms of expression. She uses techniques of improvisation and experimental composition.
 She supports the development of custom electro-acoustic instruments and setups in which sounds are transformed through analog amplification and analog or digital processing. She has been giving workshops in and outside Europe for many years, and advises and teaches composers, musicians and newcomers in the fields of live electronics with computers (including MaxMSP), experimental composition and improvisation.
