REMIX

FORUM Merzhausen Dorfstr.1Merzhausen,

Remix culture has become an integral part of the present and also has had a strong influence on the contemporary music scene. Although only recognized as an art form in its own right since the late 1980s, the idea of the remix has been an essential part of European culture for much longer: Renaissance as […]

Alberto Posadas: Poética del camino (premiere)

WDR Funkhaus, Köln Wallrafplatz 5Köln,

From the lonely paths of the bass clarinet, this new cycle by Alberto Posadas leads into a dense network of wandering sounds. The movements of the voices and instruments make spatial experiences possible that are reminiscent of our moving about.  With the Poética del camino Alberto Posadas creates a treatise, both spiritual and directly sensual, […]

Madsen & Mundry

KLANG Festival, Koncertkirken, Kopenhagen Blågårds Pl. 6AKøbenhavn,

BLODHOV – The Diary of One Who Disappeared

Displacement, escape, deportation, death—the inhumane burdens that people far from their homes must fight against, people who have been violently torn from their surroundings. These burdens are immense—and timeless. We come across descriptions of them already in mythological prehistoric times. An Icelandic legend tells of the abduction of the giantess Gerðdur by the god Freyr […]

Oh, I see

FORUM Merzhausen Dorfstr.1Merzhausen,

The Freiburg composer Carola Bauckholt has a pair of eyes projected onto two balloons. Through these external movements we can draw conclusions about internal processes. The sounds of the clarinet, cello and piano complement the eyes so that we can perceive a kind of composite artificial face in this construct of images and sounds. Thus, […]
