INSTRUMENTAL THEATRE AND VISUAL MUSIC

Music but not to see - for voices, gestures, movement | CLOSE UP - music at close quarters | curated by Irene Suchy

New music | Out of the ordinary | Concert | Education | 8+ | Adults | School, primary level | School, secondary level

The concept of “Visible Music” and “Instrumental Theatre” involves treating gestures, movement, text and voices as equals in the musical composition, creating an innovative interface between new music, theatre and artistic movement.

The programme includes works that transform scenic action into sound and expose music-making as a web of relationships. Virtuosity and theatrical scenes merge, based on precise notation and playing from memory.

Highlights include Peter Ablinger’s “Moabiter Chöre” and Otto M. Zykan’s “Verschnitt – Hutszene” as well as “Polemische Arie”, which underlines the innovative spirit of the program with the statement “Ich habe eine Erfindung gemacht…” (I’ve come up with an invention). Other pieces such as John Cage’s “Water Walk” in a film recording, Mauricio Kagel’s “Aus: Der Turm zu Babel”, Carola Bauckholt’s “Langsamer als ich dachte” for cello and projection, and Manos Tsangaris’ “Wiesers Werdetraum” expand the spectrum. Dieter Schnebel’s “Visible music” and Yannis Xenakis’ “Psappha per percussioni” demonstrate the breadth and depth of visual music, while Michael Mautner’s world premiere “Visible between the lines” for cello, percussion and three vocalists rounds off the program.

The concert will also feature Otto M. Zykan’s “Kinderreim” (Nursery rhyme), both signed and unsigned, to highlight the diverse expressive possibilities of new music and instrumental theatre.
