Martin Kohlstedt - Ströme w/ GewandhausChor

If you close your eyes, the space around you begins to pulsate. A choir of 70 people, united, yet physically separated from each other, and Martin Kohlstedt in his pulpit built of keyboard instruments. As the participants engage in a moment of contemplation, they are doing what all human beings do simply to stay alive: they breathe.

Album out now.

I would be very happy if you would share your impressions, memories and thoughts about my past concerts with me here.



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!


From time to time I write a newsletter. For me it’s important to let my thoughts circle around the project and to discuss it with you – to communicate more directly and focused apart from the often unspecific buzz of social media. I would be very happy to welcome you in this inner circle.
