The emergence and increase of aerosols is a complex phenomenon and difficult to measure. This is what 26 students along with their teachers from universities in Denmark, Finland and Sweden as well as from universities in Greece, France, Canada, Slovenia, Germany and the USA can learn during the 10 day intensive course. This is an open course but also a part of the master programme, ABS – Atmosphere-Biosphere-Studies, which was developed with support from Nordplus Higher Education Programme. The course is being held at the University of Helsinki’s Hyytiälä forest station.
Continuous intensive courses bring together students of composition and music performers from the Nordic and Baltic countries for training and artistic practice in a multinational environment. Innovative musical ideas and original artistic visions are being developed and implemented by discussing and developing them with renowned composers and professors during individual and group lessons. At the end of the course, pieces composed by students are rehearsed and performed by musicians, and presented to the audience at public concerts. Concerts are recorded, CDs released and distributed among the partner schools and music information centres as a promotional material of the Nordplus Higher Education-project.
