Composers for breakfast

Guest: Neo Hülcker (DE)

Sunday Breakfast and New Music with ensemble courage | Moderation: Alexander Keuk


Neo Hülcker is a composer and interpreter who places music as anthropological research in everyday life worlds at the centre of his work. His compositions develop as situations, performance installations, actions and interventions and deal with digital subculture (like ASMR), childhood, human-animal relations, queer practice and cultural hacking.

Hülcker studied composition with Dieter Mack and Harald Münz at the University of Music Lübeck and with Manos Tsangaris and Franz Martin Olbrisch at the Hochschule für Musik Carl Maria von Weber Dresden.

He is part of the collective Y-E-S, which publishes music that deals with performativity, temporality, sound as physical experience and the cultural framework of concerts (

Neo Hülcker has created compositions and installations such as “ear action” (2016) with Stellan Veloce, “crackles” (2016) and “good dog” (2017) for MOCREP, “gib Pfötchen” (2017) for Maulwerker and “Da war ich noch nie in meinem ganzen Leben” (2017), “Musik für tote Tiere” (since 2017) and “tentaculus ohri” (2018) with Antonia Baehr.

Hülcker’s works have been performed by ensembles such as Ensemble ascolta, Ensemble Radar, mam. Manufaktur für aktuelle Musik, Ensemble Garage, Maulwerker und Decoderensemble, MOCREP and others.
