SOUND PORTRAITS: HYPER-SPECTRAL MUSIC:
Iancu Dumitrescu & Ana Maria Avram
Sonntag 1. November 2015, Doors: 19 / Start time: 20 Uhr
Sound Portraits is a series of listening sessions, curated by Doron Sadja, focusing on the work of iconic composers who have paved the way for contemporary electronic music. After a short introduction of each artist’s life and work, we will listen to a selection of excerpts and complete works from the artist’s repertoire. Besides providing an opportunity to introduce these seminal artists to a new audience, the Sound Portraits series also offers an open forum to engage in group listening in a quiet atmosphere. Each event is free and will last approximately 1.5 hours.
Iancu Dumitrescu and Ana-Maria Avram are the two leading voices of Hyper-Spectral music, a trend in avant-garde classical music that takes its formal model from the very structure of sound. Raw, explosive, impassioned, and disarming, their work explores the aesthetics of noise, dramatically penetrating the very fabric of instruments to articulate entirely new sounds.
