Unger music is a booking and production agency for musicians. My agency offers international
artist booking and tour management services based on a personal vision: to design and initiate innovative projects and productions that integrate different musical genres. The basis of what I do reflects my love of music and deep respect for artists and their work. I am convinced that an
open mind, creativity in management and a personal connection to the artists are the key to success. I believe that music is an indispensible part of every human's happiness.
In addition to the above mentioned activities, unger music offers project and production management for cultural and corporate events, as well as artistic direction.
After receiving my law degree, my career and expertise have been shaped by a wide variety of roles in the music and culture business. In connection with these activities I have worked with artists including Fura dels Baus, Dave Brubeck, Nora Jones, Emir Kusturica, Joe Cocker, Count Basie Orchestra, Eddie Palmieri, Paul Kuhn, Freddy Cole, Hiram Bullock, Mezzoforte and many more.
I have worked for years in the pop and jazz sector and I continue to benefit from my experiences with my worldwide network in both scenes. The spectrum of my activities ranges from booking and tour management for large, internationally renowned open-air theatre productions, to a position as musical programme director for the Limelight Theatre in Cologne. I have been directly involved in designing and coordinating TV programmes and events, including for the major German Network, WDR.
Together with my former agency Montanitz, I organised the open air programme for the Expo 2000 in Hannover and have created and coordinated programs for varied industry events - always with a focus on music. These efforts have been complemented by various managerial roles at the international music festival "c/o pop" in Cologne, (www.c-o-pop.de), where I was responsible for the overall coordination of the "c/o pop festival" and the "business platform c/o pop convention", for the management of international co-operations and the festival network "Europareise", which comprises approximately 100 festivals worldwide.
I have worked as a booking agent and tour manager for jazz bands from the USA and Europe. Since 2014 I worked for the Interactive Cologne Festival and coordinated the edition 2015. (www.interactive-cologne.com)
