PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS 2015

The KLANGSPUREN SCHWAZ 2015 festival presents a diverse range of music with unfamiliar tunes, tunings and atmospheres. Alternative harmonic and tuning systems, just intonation, unusual scales and intonation, micro-intervals, otherworldly beats and pulses, unorthodox playing techniques, custom-made musical instruments and subtle musical gestures all characterize this festival edition. In Beat Furrer, this year’s Composer in Residence of the 12th edition of the KLANGSPUREN International Ensemble Modern Academy, we have found yet another extraordinary musical character. In the course of the festival you will hear the unknown alongside the new. With concerts, talks and installations by regional, national and international artists, KLANGSPUREN aims to provide audiences with extensive snapshots of contemporary creativity.
