Abo 2: Toy Laboratory

28.November 2021 | 20:00

“I work at the piano.” Which musicians would speak of themselves in this way? An instrument is played, reviews offer descriptions of the joy of playing, and a mistake is considered a “misplay” (even if the question remains open as to what is misplayed through imperfection). What does it mean in a professional context to understand music as play? Can an instrument be a toy? In a workshop of playfulness, Ensemble Recherche explores the playful nature of new music. Together with two instrument makers, new instruments have been created in the process: Fedde ten Berge tinkered with a sensor-controlled loop machine for electronic sounds, while L√©o Maurel’s octopus-like organ variant enters into play with the air. In collective workshops with the composers Ricardo Eizirik, Anda Kryeziu, Matthias Kr√ľger and Kristine Tj√łgersen, new pieces for the Ensemble Recherche have been developed. And last but not least, the audience mutates into a player at the concert. At the family concert, we take lessons from the true experts of playing: here, the children are allowed to play the new sound generators.

Two concerts! Family concert at 16.00, Abo concert at 20.00
