Martin Kohlstedt - NIODOM (w/ GewandhausChor)

A while ago something unthinkable and exciting was brewing behind the walls of the Gewandhaus in Leipzig – Gregor Meyer, head of the widely reknown Gewandhaus choir carefully convinced the numerous human voices lead by him to dive into and finally even follow my intuitive improvisations. At first worlds quite alien to one another clashed — but with every iteration of meeting, talking, rehearsing together and the growing trust therefrom not only a mere friendship formed but a big family bearing such an unbelieveable energy that it is now no longer possible – after two years of development including adventurous, public rehearsals and a premiere sold out and full to the brim – to hold back the waves created.

It’s the first single of my new album ‚Ströme‘ which will be with you in May 2019. Feel free to share it with your loved ones!

If you want to support me and my music you can do so by purchasing it on CD, Vinyl, WAV and MP3 directly from my own web shop.


My friend and videographer Patrick Richter has been accompanying me with his camera for several years now. The result is an extraordinary multi-part documentary about the roots of my music.

«Beyond Stage» is a long-term documentary project by my friend and photographer Peter Runkewitz about me and the life behind the scenes, which began in early 2013.

Back in summer I had the opportunity to give a TEDx talk at RWTH Aachen University about my personal way of composing: Over the years I created a variety of modules that I recombine and shuffle into something new — like a musical vocabulary. If you want to have a closer look, check out this video!
