With SCAN, its young concert project on the fringes between interpretation and improvisation, Klangforum Wien strikes out in a new direction with the aim of shedding a fresh and different light on composed music by means of re-instrumentation, improvisation, electronics, fragmentation and re-constitution of the parts. Expanding the areas for music making, stretching the limits drawn by the musical text and the conductor, freedom instead of security, liberating the musical routine – this is what SCAN is all about. Starting with a composition which is fixed on the page of a score, the ensemble creates a new work by freely treating the defined specifications, thus arriving at a “piece about a piece”, which comes into being live, in front of the audience’s ears at the concert venue.
The interactive composition project SCAN is part of the Klangforum Wien lectures in "Performance Practice in Contemporary Music" (PPCM) at the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz. A concert performed by students and as well their lecturers in the MUMUTH is the highlight of every year's PPCM course.
