Teacher of the course is Anouschka Trocker. She studied literature at the Free University of Berlin where she moved in 1989. Anouschka had the chance to see this city at the beginning of the 90´s when an exciting scene of experimental music started to develop. It was a special time and space to both try and explore new things; to turn daily sound into music, to listen to the environment in a different way, to reconfigure the surroundings. Her interests for literature and noise/sound/music has significantly shaped the way she works today.

Since 1999 Anouschka has worked with text and sound: 
She conceives and direct radio plays for the German Broadcast, 
does sound design for theater, film and performance and
creates sound installations based on field-recordings.

Anouschka likes to transform the meaning of the sounds, to de-contextualize them in order to play with new possibilities, unexpected mistakes, and surprising discoveries.
