KlangHaus. Logo des Festivals mit neuer Musik im Stadthaus Ulm
In 2021, the neue-Musik-Festival (festival for contemporary classical music) will take place at the Stadthaus Ulm, for the first time under its new name: ‘KlangHaus’.

At the beginning of the 20th century, Monte Verità (‘Mountain of Truth’), the legendary hill overlooking Ascona in south-west Tessin, was a Mecca for progressive artists, philosophers and idealists. Within our festival, the mountain is a symbol and synonym for visionary contemporary music. The festival explores the question, in how far artistic creation, music or the planning of a concert can contribute to the change of social consciousness.
