We want to convey a broad understanding of music that has its focus on the present.

our idea

lev is aimed at lear­ners and tea­chers and at edu­ca­tio­nal and cul­tu­ral insti­tu­ti­ons of all kinds. We offer inno­va­ti­ve con­cepts for tea­ching elec­tro­nic music cul­tu­re. In addi­ti­on, we deve­lop free music soft­ware that is desi­gned to con­vey elec­tro­nic music.

contemporary music teaching

With modern and con­tent-wise diver­se didac­tic con­cepts, we deve­lop a con­tem­po­ra­ry music pedago­gy. For us, what sur­rounds young peo­p­le every day should be an essen­ti­al part of lear­ning music. This arou­ses inte­rest and moti­va­ti­on, and what has been lear­ned can be appli­ed to one's own environment.

with an interdisciplinary approach

Elec­tro­nic music is fun­da­men­tal­ly inter­di­sci­pli­na­ry. It has strong sub­stan­ti­ve refe­ren­ces to mathe­ma­tics, phy­sics and com­pu­ter sci­ence. In this way, it enables a crea­ti­ve and artis­tic exami­na­ti­on of tech­ni­cal con­tent, it com­bi­nes aes­the­tic with tech­ni­cal education.

and various instruments

We work with dif­fe­rent musi­cal instru­ments on a topic-spe­ci­fic basis - both new and old. The com­pu­ter is unders­tood and used as a musi­cal instru­ment. Here we work with free­ly acces­si­ble hard­ware and soft­ware, or with very cheap ones. In addi­ti­on, we also deve­lop free­ly acces­si­ble digi­tal instru­ments that are desi­gned to conve

The pro­ject got its name from Lev Ser­ge­evič Ter­men, the phy­si­cist and inven­tor born in 1896 in Saint Peters­burg, Rus­sia. Ter­men beca­me inter­na­tio­nal­ly known around 1920 with the inven­ti­on of the the­re­min, one of the first musi­cal instru­ments that pro­du­ced its sounds elec­tro­ni­cal­ly. The the­re­min works elec­tro­ma­gne­ti­cal­ly, it does not have to be touch­ed when play­ing. It seems to pro­du­ce its sounds out of nowhe­re, which ama­zed the audi­ence then (and still does today). The inven­ti­on of the the­re­min was fol­lo­wed by num­e­rous other inno­va­ti­ve instru­ments and an extre­me­ly eventful life on the inter­na­tio­nal stage. Today Ter­men is con­side­red a pio­neer of ear­ly elec­tro­nic music. The begin­nings of lev lie at the end of 2016 in Mar­ten Seedorf’s master’s the­sis (in col­la­bo­ra­ti­on with Chris­tof Mar­tin Schultz), in which the loop-Ensem­ble was deve­lo­ped. After com­ple­ting his stu­dies, Mar­ten began his music edu­ca­ti­on work under the name "Loop". In mid-2017, the plans for a more com­pre­hen­si­ve media­ti­on pro­ject took on more con­cre­te fea­tures, which was final­ly foun­ded under the new name "lev" at the end of 2017 tog­e­ther with Deniz Dilek, Gis­bert Schü­rig and Simon Stein­haus as a gUG. After the dis­so­lu­ti­on of the gUG, lev has been working as an inde­pen­dent musi­ci­ans' coll­ec­ti­ve with new artists and musi­ci­ans sin­ce 2023. lev has its cen­ter in Ber­lin - a city that is the inter­na­tio­nal cen­ter of diver­se elec­tro­nic music and elec­tro­nic music culture.
