Formed in 1985, in process represents one of the rare minimalistic orchestras around. Ulli Götte, composer and head of the group, is pushing the limits of serious and light music with his compositions.
in process has always had an affinity for exploring new musical spaces, which resulted in diverse multi media projects. The creative versatility of the ensemble, reflected in the ‚KlangWelten‘ tour 1989 and in joint projects with the dance group ‚Regenbogen‘ from Koblenz, Germany, with a light/music-project from 1994.
In the year 1997, when the documenta presents itself for the tenth time in Kassel, in process will in turn initiate the first German Minimal Music Festival. A contribution to the worldwide most important exhibition of modern art, which hopes to encourage this perhaps unique authentic form of world music to receive more attention.
Today, in process performs in concerts with emphasis on workshops, lectures and discussions. More than 350 concerts not only in Germany. Minimal Music will always be part of their life and the group‘s goal is to contribute to the development of this great music with their own compositions.
