Pia Palme is a composer, musician, festival founder and interdisciplinary project designer. She once casted a 100 person choir for the premiere of an experimental composition. Since 2007 she has been doing internationally pioneering work with a completely newly developed sub-bass. In 2009 she commissioned 4 compositions for this instrument which were financed by the SKE and the Küng Blockflöten GmbH.
