The Cottbusser Chor a small, diverse vocal ensemble, has been in existence since the beginning of 2014. The singers of the ensemble speak 13 languages and come from different musical contexts. The algorithm-based compositions in which the choir specializes preserve this diversity. - It is precisely this audibility of languages, gestures, accents and accentuations that is the choir's strength. Since its foundation with the premiere of "The News Blues", the choir has given concerts at Maerzmusik Berlin 2016, Hangar Bicocca Milan 2016, for documenta14 Radio 2017, among others. "The News Blues" became "The News Trilogy" with further parts "Major News / Minor News" and "Secret News" . We blew up the choir to a band: "Kopiergruppe" is a musical neighbourhood project at SAVVY Contemporary & Zeitzone in 2019, an open structure to process musical donations. In the run-up to the concerts we asked pedestrians for musical donations, This little recordings were being copied by the choir The copies of the donations were meshed into a medley during the show. The choir plays also an important role for the Wandering Dunes as a performance. The choir took part of all three iterations in Innsbruck, Porto & Berlin

.The choir was also involved in three film scores for "Miete essen Seele auf" by Angelika Levi Arte 2016 Weitermachen Sanssouci by Max Linz / Berlinale 2018. and the upcoming film by Max Linz.
T–p records / Austria & Subjam / China have released an album Digital and on Vinyl  on bandcamp
