Beethovenfest invited me to join a tweetup (at a tweetup people who use twitter will cover an event by tweeting a lot about it) for the Brandt Brauer Frick concert at the Telekom-Forum in Bonn. Brandt Brauer Frick play techno and electronical music on classical instruments and this concert was splendidly organised by the “Schuelermanager”, a group of high school students who applied to become part of the team, who also held the introduction to the concert. Here are some photos i took at the concert. I chose black and white because it fits the motto of the concert (which also was the official hashtag on twitter and instagram) #becontrast for the contrasts which Brandt Brauer Frick represent due to the mixing of classical instruments with very modern music. (i was not there to take photos but to enjoy the concert and also to tweet)
The Twitter folk apparently tweeted over 800 tweets during the concert here you can see Johannes Mirus @Johannes “at work”

Schuelermanager officially opening the concert which they organised
Not only the people from twitter used their mobile phones quite actively during the concert
The concert had amazing visuals and at the beginning the Brandt Brauer Frick Ensemble (Violinist, Cellist, Drummer, Percussionist, Harp-Player and another Pianist) joined the three musicians
Brandt Brauer Frick uses the Piano not only in the conservative way by hitting the keys, but also new John-Cage-Esque techniques in which they use tools to get different sounds
Sometimes instead of visuals we could see live footage on the wall

At the End of the Concert the Schulermanager joined Brandt Brauer Frick for their very well deserved applause.
The Schuelermanager and the Band also asked the audience to stay for a selfie.

It was a wonderful concert and not quite the typical classical concert experience because of the Act, the tweetup, the location and the great organisation.
