World BEAThoven Project:

On the occasion of the 250th anniversary of nature enthusiast, humanist, visionary and composer genius Ludwig van Beethoven in year 2020, an international network of musicians and electronic music producers under the management and idea of cultural manager Darius Darek Roncoszek (Taxi MunDJal MusiX), produced an extraordinary music album: twenty melodies from Beethoven’s work were recorded by international ethnic instrumentalists (under direction of Hans Zimmer’s sample library developer) and then remixed worldwide by high-level electronic music production means.
Part of these remixes will be arranged for a 35 person brass orchestra.

As Darius Darek Roncoszek’s academic background is geography, he has implemented sustainable, degrowth and minimalism based, fair, green, common-good-oriented and alternative ways of life into this music project. A transdisciplinary designed artivism towards a socio-ecological transformation:

– to promote „cultural diversity“ the project is a collaboration with musicians of diverse music cultures to record a sample databank.
– to promote „cultural heritage“ the project aims to upcycle & remix almost forgotten music by worldwide electronic music producers.
– to promote „creative commons“ the sample databank and the remixes can be used and listened to for free.
– to promote „socio-ecological projects“ the remixes are presented at green, transformational or zero waste festivals, at intergenerational bicycle rides or in „freeboxes“.
– to promote „citizen participation“ a random local youth involvement and a worldwide production contest (in cooperation with Arts Council England) were carried out:
– the project thus supports some of the sustainable development goals (SDGs): reduced inequalities, sustainable cities and communities, quality education, gender equality and climate action.
