:::::: ZKM EVENTS :::

Bang on a Can All-Stars :: Brian Enos "Music for Airports" in 1978 marked the founding of a new music style: Ambient music. The Bang on a Can All-Stars perform the album version by Eno as an instrumental adaptation. In addition, the group presents works by Michael Nyman (including "The Piano"), Julia Wolfe, and Louis Andriessen. The Bang on a Can All-Stars, founded in 1992 and since active as an international ensemble, work within a hybrid musical spectrum with their unusual rock and jazz-related program and various playing techniques ⁄⁄ more

The Performer in Electronic Music :: An electronic music concert is typically characterized by the absence of musicians on the stage and complex, instrumental "unplayable" sound structures a situation in which listeners rely greatly on their own perception and the space because the musicians, as focus of attention and "mediators" of the music, are missing. In the newly conceived concert talk series at ZKM, we speak with musicians and composers and discuss artistic strategies ⁄⁄ more
[The Interpret as Interface | Talk in the ZKM_Lecture Hall, Thurs 15 April 6 p.m. | Barbara Lüneburg and Evan Ziporyn (Bang on a Can All-Stars) in conversation with Julia Gerlach | Admission free]

Flux :: Violinist Barbara Lüneburg is more than an interpreter of contemporary music. Both artistically as well as scientifically, she questions the role of the interpreter as an interface between instrument, composer, and audience in the concert situation. Her multimedia program for violin and e-violin fluctuates between music and video with movement sensors for light and laser projections, among other ways. Program including: Yannis Kyriakides "Re: Mad Masters" (2010) for violin (alternative, viola), video and live electronics, Dai Fujikura (Music), Tomoya Yamaguchi (Video) "Flux" (2010) for violin and live video, Marko Ciciliani "Alias" (2007) for e-violin, live electronics, light, and laser ⁄⁄ more
[Interactive audiovisual performance with the violinist Barbara Lüneburg in the ZKM_Cube | Sat April 17, 2010, 9 p.m. | Admission EUR 9/6]
