about the festival


Moving Sounds
is a 4-day festival of music, visual media and aesthetic dialogue, produced jointly by the Austrian Cultural Forum, the Musical Information Center of Austria (MICA), and the Argento New Music Project. The festival creates a forum for dialogue about sound. What is the relationship between sound and music? Can new theories of sound transform traditional ideas of “popular” and “classical” music? Through concerts, symposia, and social environments, the festival explores sound and its musical and sociological implications.

As in Moving Sounds 2009, last year’s highly successful festival which received rave reviews and listings in all leading New York periodicals, Moving Sounds 2010 investigates the phenomena of sound by pairing leading contemporary classical music performers with electronic performers. Moving Sounds 2010 features world premiere performances of works by landmark contemporary composers, Austria’s Georg Friedrich Haas and Bernhard Lang. On the side of electronic performers, Moving Sounds 2010 will feature leading Austrian electric guitarist and composer Christian Fennesz, along with Japanese acousmatic composer Steven Takasugi and Austrian alternative singer/songwriter Soap&Skin. To bridge the world between the electronic and acoustic worlds, Moving Sounds will also feature a world premiere performance of American composer Ed Campion. This performance will be the first-ever concerto for Yamaha’s new avant-guard electronic keyboard invention, the AvantGrand.

All events take place at the ACFNY, at Le Poisson Rouge, 158 Bleecker Street, New York, NY 10012, and at the Czech Center, 321 E. 73rd Street, New York, NY 10021. Founded by musicians, Le Poisson Rouge is a multimedia art cabaret on the site of the historic Village Gate. Its mission is to revive the symbiotic relationship between art and revelry, and to establish a creative asylum for both artists and audiences. Concerts at LPR will take maximal advantage of the venue’s state-of-the-art sound system that includes 32 Meyer Sound speakers.
