ACFNY SUPPORTED | CONCERT
ANDREAS WEIXLER: DIE GRENZEN DES ZUFALLS
THURSDAY, APR 04 2013, 01:00 PM
The Austrian Cultural Forum is pleased to support this concert by Austrian composer Andreas Weixler at the New York City Electroacoustic Music Festival, where he will be performing his piece for violoncello, interactive score and live electronics, Die Grenzen des Zufalls. He will be joined by Madeleine Shapiro (violoncello, iScore), and Se-Lien Chuang (iScore).
"An interactive score turns the concert into live-event of a very special kind: The score is assembled within an algorithmic realtime process on stage based on mainly graphic notation, performer and composer process an interactive score and exert mutual influence on it. In addition to this a realtime computer system creates a constant stream of ambience in the electro-acoustic space. In this piece a thrilling art work of interactive composition within improvisational concepts and realtime computer processes unfold." - Andreas Weixler
