MOVING SOUNDS festival 2011

“The Moving Sounds Festival means its title to be taken in every possible way. The works performed during this three-day event are meant to be moving, if not always emotionally then viscerally or intellectually.” - Allan Kozinn, The New York Times

about the festival


Moving Sounds
is an annual international festival of music, visual media and aesthetic dialogue that features emerging and pioneering artists who focus on electronically generated music, and who are at the interface between classically-instrumented and electronic music. The Festival is co-produced by the Austrian Cultural Forum, the Musical Information Center of Austria (MICA), and the Argento New Music Project.

In 2011, the festival will once again feature genre-bending premiere performances, offering up a host of new sound experiences to a New York audience. The Austrian band Elektro Guzzi, who “go about as far as anyone has yet in distancing themselves from machine encroachment in dance music production” (Jordan Rothlein, Little White Earbuds) will bring their unique “quasi-unplugged” approach to techno dance music to New York.

2011 will also see a performance with a Reactable, which is an electronic device that uses concepts of modular synthesis, sampling,advanced digital effects processing, and DJing, and combines them with modern human-computer interaction, multi-touch technology and a tangible interface. The musician controls the system by manipulating tangible objects on a translucent and luminous round table. By turning them and connecting them to each other, performers can combine different elements such as synthesizers, effects, sample loops or control elements in order to create a unique and flexible composition. One of the co-creators of the Reactable, Austrian Martin Kaltenbrunner, will perform with New York-based Reactable player, Peter Kirn.

Also slated to appear in the Moving Sounds 2011 festival is Austrian Viola da Gamba-, recorder player, and composer Eva Reiter; her compositional work of recent years represents another exploration of the fine line between acoustic and electronic music. Reiter’s participation in this year’s festival will also include a performance with the Argento Chamber Ensemble, which is the performance arm of the New York-based Argento New Music Project. The Argento Chamber Ensemble and its director Michel Galante have been a driving force behind Moving Sounds, with a host of groundbreaking performances since its inception.

Another highlight of this year’s festival will be a concert entitled Czechsplorations: Members of the fourbythree ensemble and Argento, who have come together to form The Moving Sounds Collaborative, will perform a special concert featuring two Janáček world premieres, the world premiere of a new work by American composer David Fulmer, and a New York premiere of a new arrangement of the Adagio from Gustav Mahler's unfinished Tenth Symphony.

 

All events take place at the ACFNY, at the Czech Center's Bohemian National Hall, 321 E. 73rd Street, New York, NY 10021, and at the Glasslands Gallery, 289 Kent Ave Brooklyn, New York 11211.
