This Thursday you’ve got the chance to experience some very extraordinary contemporary music when Ensemble Mosaik challenges the relation between instrumentalists and machinery. It’s at Kesselhaus, Kulturbrauerei – and we’ve got 2×2 tickets up for grabs – so read along…
This Thursday evening will be special. It’s the fourth edition of Ensemble Mosaik’s Autonomous Music-project – Autonome Musik (4), Schaltungen – and yes, you’ll want to be there.
Ensemble Mosaik is performing no less than four different pieces – surrounded by short compositions for instrumentalists and a sound-machine playing by itself. Guido Henneböhl is the man behind the machinery. His project X_X Transformer examines the role of electronic circuits in contemporary music and the relation between instrumentalist and machine. The instrumentalists and the machinery will be equals – meaning that the audience gets to experience the encounter of two very different and complex systems.
To be completely honest it’s not an easy task explaining exactly what will happen this Thursday – but that is really(!) the beauty of this event. Creative individuality is key when it comes to this ensemble – they enjoy experimenting and doing things differently.
Ensemble Mosaik was founded it 1997; and they’ve come a long way since the beginning – trying out different musical styles, collaborating with other artists, incorporating visual elements, and changing the formats of ‘normal’ concert experiences. They experiment with expression and interpretation; forcing us to see things from different perspectives.
Ensemble Mosaik is well known both nationally and internationally and is often invited to share their great experience within the field of contemporary music-making with young composers and artists all over the world. So it is indeed a unique chance you’ve got this Thursday when they’re playing at Kesselhaus.
