Relevante Musik

19 – 21 July 2013 Villa Elisabeth, St. Elisabeth-Kirche and events in public space Festival of political media art, performance and music In recent years, discussion in the field of contemporary music has been dominated by the question of how to promote it. Dealing with the music itself has seemed secondary to the “goal [of] strengthening the presence of new music in cultural life, so as to increase public awareness and reach a new audience” (New Music Network). With the festival Relevante Musik, we kick the ball back to the artists and ask about the social and political relevance of their works. In comparison to contemporary visual art, with its social-analytic or political-structural focus, contemporary…

Since the early ’90s, classical and pop music have also become part of his reference systems.

From the beginning, music and sound have played a central role in his works, which frequently are based merely on instructions for minimal interventions. The music pieces that he writes for the band “owada”, which he co-founded in 1994, are also reduced to elementary song structures. “Situated somewhere between Steve Reich and the…

The musicians seized the opportunity and the trio was born. Berlin’s resident electronics artist zeitblom reconnects to his avant-rock roots and temporarily exchanges his laptop for a bass guitar. Alex Hacke, whose career began with the founding of Einstürzende Neubauten, discovered his love for American folk and country music while the Neubauten were becoming an international hit, and developed a reputation as an outstanding singer.

She worked with John Cage and the Merce Cunningham Dance Company, among others, realized numerous sound installations and, in recent years, has increasingly been incorporating multimedia elements into her work. In many pieces, she experiments with especially high tones, which elicit in listeners an effect that she describes as “Third Ear Music”.

She did not, however, follow her mentor into the pastures of “musique concrète”, but turned rather to synthesizers as sound sources and went her own way. Her electronic sounds, usually generated on Arp or Moog synthesizers and recorded on tape, have a hypnotic power and are uncompromisingly minimalistic, even ascetic. They change almost imperceptibly and create a continuous flow in which the music seems to be moving around the listener. It could be…

A primordial form of the “canto a tenores” has been preserved in northeastern Sardinia for centuries, one as vital and direct as the untamed nature of the island. The lead singer sings the main melody – usually of ballads, satires,…

And thus, she is the designated and authentic interpreter of Scelsi’s magnificent cycle for solo voice under the sign of Capricorn. Hirayama, who had also studied traditional Japanese singing, came to Rome in the ’60s and soon stood at the center of that city’s musical avant-garde. Over 100 works were dedicated to her and her extraordinary voice. Giacinto Scelsi (1915–1982) was a loner among the composers of…

In his concert “motion picture soundtrack”, zeitblom presents the music for an unmade movie filmed using the anamorphic Cinemascope process.
