science? fiction!

Science is a marvellous thing. Unfortunately, it lacks in reason. Intoxicated by its triumphal progress of the last three-hundred years, it blithely oversteps its bounds which, owing to their inherent nature, only allow a limited view of reality. Reduced to the small world of what can be measured and weighed, it dabbles in realms of experience for which its instruments are way too blunt. In doing so, it encroaches – often enough unacknowledged – upon the empires of fantasy, intuition and fiction, where music, a lavish host, gladly welcomes her stern younger sister with her thick horn-rimmed specs.

In seven concerts, Klangforum Wien balances on a razor’s edge between heaven and earth: sciencefiction! – A provocation.
