Contemporary concert experience with contact as connecting thread
Thu 21 Nov 2019, 20.00

In Kontakte (1960) cult composer Karlheinz Stockhausen turns his back on traditional classical music. By adding electronics to the usual sound arsenal, he manages to create a single musical universe and extend the contact between performers and listeners.  HERMESensemble radicalise this in their performance of Stockhausen’s Solo: a musician in Bruges has a live dialogue with a colleague on the other side of the world. Season’s composer Daan Janssens and composer Daniela Fantechi formulate a contemporary answer to Stockhausen's enigmas.


Karlheinz Stockhausen (1928-2007)

Daan Janssens (1983)
(…sans rien dire…) (world premiere)

Daniela Fantechi (1984)

HERMESensemble: ensemble
