KLANGSPUREN SCHWAZ

TYROLEAN FESTIVAL OF NEW MUSIC

ENNO POPPE COMPOSER IN RESIDENCE

09/08 – 09/25/2016

YOUNG STARS. COMIC. CARTOON. GRAFFITI.

The 23rd edition of the Tirol new music festival KLANGSPUREN SCHWAZ will pinpoint young stars in the heavens of contemporary music. A new generation of musicians and composers is emerging. They are adressing musical history with fewer prejudices and self-consciousness than their forerunners and are found in diverse schools and movements, including pop and improvisation. Their playful and stubborn attitude and curiousity inspires their mood of open-minded deconstruction and conceptual reflection, a pleasure in irony and humor paired with stunning technical abilities and skillful use of digital media  – delightful urgings to explore musical adaptions of popculture and massmedia codes as they appear in comics, mangas, cartoons, graffiti and other types of quick, concise iconisation. A colorful, lively, as well as boldly striking international program.

 

The detailled festival programm will be released at May 2016
