POWER-SPACE

New Music creates a field of highly diverse forces. Spiral-shaped, it expands our perceptions and perspective. It allows our sense of space to unfold and release hitherto undreamt-of dynamics. It holds a mirror up to the entertainment-circus, seeks out uncharted realms and ventures into forbidding terrain, before floating away as if it had never existed. Can its inherent powers have some kind of an effect before they dissolve? Can they alter things – perhaps even for the better?

With music by Georg Friedrich Haas, Alberto Posadas, Iannis Xenakis, Sarah Nemtsov, Unsuk Chin, Ragnhild Berstad, Clara Iannotta, Dorian Concept, Bernhard Gander et. al.

To listen in a sphere without boundaries, to feel one’s way towards the depths of what was seemingly submerged or to intuit what is inaudible up there in the firmament – to in a space of sounds.
