A Grand Evening Concert
Mediating between the realm of acoustic instruments and the domain of electronic and digital sounds is the prime mission of the long concert night that has become a fixed feature on Ars Electronica’s lineup. The great Bruckner Orchestra conducted by Dennis Russell Davies and featuring Maki Namekawa on piano will enable us to partake of extraordinary performances that span in virtuoso fashion the entire range bounded by these musical antipodes.
Moreover, the grand evening concert’s program represents not only an encounter of different musical worlds and generations; the music itself as a level of expression will also be provided with a visual augmentation. In conjunction with each of the works to be performed, a different artist has been invited to create a digital visualization that accompanies the composition, plumbs its depths, and even constitutes the artist’s own interpretation of the music.
Some Sounds and Some Fury is a further step in an ongoing collaboration between Brucknerhaus Linz
and Ars Electronica that attempts to create new experimental fusions between music and visual art.
