“NewOpenForm” is a program for building pieces from acoustic sound samples and video samples (soon photos and text) online; in the process the normally exclusive act of creation is thereby opened up into the creation of a collective work.

Musicians as well as non – musicians can build their pieces and enjoy the opportunity to hear them live as well.

The same musicians who recorded the audio samples used in “NewOpenForm” are all active players in the Berlin experimental/improvisatory music scene.

The pieces created with “NewOpenForm” take the form of a flowchart – symbols representing audio samples that are connected with arrows. The program follows the arrows’ course using greater or lesser degrees of probability as it goes from one sound to another.
