TRANSIENT Junior Fellows

Outstanding professional young musicians are selected as Junior Fellows for participation in the TRANSIENT Academy, who will realize their own artistic ideas on site in addition to their participation in the impulse project.

Maxine Troglauer

Junior Fellow 2023

Classical music, jazz, contemporary music – for Maxine Troglauer these are not genres that can be meticulously separated. They are organically interconnected resonance spaces that give the bass trombonist, who was born in Wiesbaden in 1995, the opportunity to engage in a self-confident dialogue with the past. Troglauer does not think in clichés, but recognises possibilities. Her declared aim is to free her instrument from its niche and help it to develop its own repertoire.

Valerie Fritz

Junior Fellow 2021

Valerie Fritz, an Austrian musician, studies violoncello at the Mozarteum University Salzburg with Clemens Hagen and Giovanni Gnocchi. As a member of the Lucerne Festival Academy Orchestra, the European Union Youth Orchestra and the Vienna Jeunesse Orchestra, as well as a substitute in the Camerata Salzburg and the Liechtenstein Symphony Orchestra, Valerie has participated in several concert tours throughout Europe and worked with conductors such as Bernard Haitink, Manfred Honeck, Gianandrea Noseda, Matthias Pintscher and Péter Eötvös.

Alexandra Vildosola

Junior Fellow 2021

Bold, wild, existential – that’s how I make concerts as a singer and concert designer. I design theme- and location-specific concerts and have already had the pleasure of working with greats such as Folkert Uhde and Jeremias Schwarzer or festivals such as the ION and the intern. A-Cappella-Woche Hannover have worked with me.

Vincent Stange

Composition/Installation / Junior Fellow 2021

Vincent Stange is a transmedia composer. In his work, he pursues an expanded concept of composition that includes curatorial practice in particular. He orchestrates various artistic disciplines into experimental, open formats that go beyond a purely sonic experience.

Vera Seedorf

Artistic production management, head of school projects, percussion

As artistic production manager, Vera Seedorf oversees the interface between artistic and organizational planning and is significantly involved in the development of the workshops and school projects in the Eifel. In the workshops, she also supports the participants from the perspective of a professional percussionist in working sonically with situations and materials found on site in nature.
