2016: New System Dynamics Song
“System Dynamics Song: Close The Loop” was originally written and performed in 1976 at Geilo, Norway Conference by a group of attendees who protected their anonymity under the name of the Transient International Consortium at Geilo (TICAG). The song had an encore performance
at the 2000 Bergen Conference.
This year, there is a new song: “Looking for Feedback Loops
.” Below are the artists’ stories and photos.
Wolfram Reinhard, born on the 6th of June 1990 as Wolfram Pallaske, is a student at the Leibniz University Hannover and is focusing on regional development in his Bachelor’s thesis. In 2009, he graduated high school with music as one of the main courses, but he started learning to play several instruments when he was six. After his brother Georg wouldn’t stop bugging him, he recorded and cut the song “Looking for feedback loops”, of which Georg wrote the text himself. Wolfram Reinhard has already finished several music related projects, which he was realizing outside of the curricula of his temporary education, alongside which he produced one CD. The strong positive feedback on the song “Looking for feedback loops” surprised the artist.
Georg Pallaske, born on the 4th of October 1987, is a current student in the European Masters Programme in System Dynamics (EMSD). After his Bachelor’s degree in Business Administrations, he entered the EMSD because of the potential the he saw in the application of the method with expert-groups (group-model building). After one and a half years of studying SD, and a lot of conversations with peers and experts, he decided to write a song about SD which compiles the things that are still at odds within the field, and put them into a nice message that comes across easily. And thanks to his little brother the song is available in a version that people might even enjoy listening to. Georg Pallaske is currently in the last semester, and will soon start writing his masters’ thesis.
Thanks to Wolfram and Georg!
