Mu­sic­al pro­duc­tion in the sculp­ture park

Where art and nature blend to­geth­er with sound

The “Klangart” festival is so much more than “music in the countryside, surrounded by art”. Productions that never previously existed amaze the audience at the Waldfrieden Sculpture Park in Wuppertal. There are sounds in the air that cannot be pigeon-holed. Between the trees of the park stand modern and contemporary sculptures, collected here by sculptor Tony Cragg. Jazz from the north combines with Afro-Cuban sounds, Latin American rhythms harmonise with classical. The artists interlace sounds of nature with their musical fantasies and allow themselves to be inspired by the art that is all around them. They begin by improvising in different corners of the sculpture park, find their way to each other and grow together. The Klangart visitors are also on the move: they follow the concert as they stroll and are amazed, right in the heart of it all.

Brightly coloured street art

Amazing art can be found even outside the natural idyll of the Waldfrieden sculpture park in Wuppertal. Scene quarters with little galleries, innovative gastronomy, and creative people provide surprising meetings in town. Special eye-catchers and photo motives can be found in street-art works, such as the Holsteiner Treppe with its 112 coloured steps or a rainbow-coloured Lego brick bridge. Former train routes offer paths across the town for pedestrians or cyclists as comfortable connections in the otherwise hilly spot in the Bergisches Land.
