HELLO MILLENNIALS // MIXED ENSEMBLE, LIVE-ELECTRONICS AND VIDEO

HELLO MILLENNIALS // MIXED ENSEMBLE, LIVE-ELECTRONICS AND VIDEO

Hello millennials is a multimedia concert that clearly focuses on the importance of the audiovisual, multimedia or, more generally, dramaturgical approach in recent musical practices.

 

The key point of the show are the compositions of Alexander Schubert, active in Hamburg, who has made multimedia one of the fundamental traits of his poetics.

 

“Hello”, in this program in version 2.0, is a piece for a group of instrumentalists, live-electronics and video, where the author proposes a score generated by the projection itself, in which the relationship between the rhythm of video editing and the gestural rhythm of the instrumentalists assumes a central role in the formal distribution.

In “Scanners II”, placed at the end of the program, the ensemble becomes a real “machine”: the acoustic sounds enter in counterpoint with the electronic track, generating a complex audiovisual perspective, in which the gestural elegance is contrasted by robotic movements, plays of lights and techno-morphic scenarios.

 

Also “Cendres” by Kaija Saariaho, a chamber piece for flute, cello and piano with a spectralist influence, presents in reality, in the accentuated expressiveness, a strong dramaturgical component. The Finnish composer seeks a dialectic relationship between two opposites: the fusion of the individual sounds of the instruments and the expression of the idiomatic potential of each.
