KLANGSPUREN SCHWAZ

TIROL NEW MUSIC FESTIVAL

ENNO POPPE COMPOSER IN RESIDENCE

YOUNG STARS. COMIC. CARTOON. GRAFFITI.

FESTIVAL-RÜCKBLICK

The 23rd edition of the Tyrolean Festival of new music KLANGSPUREN focuses on the young stars in the contemporary music sky. A new generation of musicians and composers is emerging, and compared to former generations, these young stars take a more unbiased approach to musical history and its avant-gardes. They explore heterogeneous styles, eschewing neither pop culture nor improvisation, and have the highest regard for performance. Their playful and recalcitrant attitude and curiosity inspires their mood of open-minded deconstruction and conceptual reflection, a pleasure in irony and humor paired with stunning musical abilities and the skillful use of digital media. It is clear to see how intriguing it might be to experiment with musical adaptions of the pop culture and mass media codes found in comics, manga, cartoons, graffiti, and other types of terse and fleeting iconography.

 

With the founding of the International Ensemble Modern Academy (IEMA) 13 years ago, the world-famous special formation for new music Ensemble Modern clearly demonstrated its dedication toward promoting and training young professional musicians in the area of new music early on. And from the beginning, the KLANGSPUREN Festival has collaborated as a partner by offering a two-week IEMA Summer Academy – reason enough to present the IEMA in 2016 in its full dimension, range, and depth. The 13th annual KLANGSPUREN IEMA expands its usual core activities to include a big opening concert with the ENSEMBLE MODERN ORCHESTRA consisting of this year’s KLANGSPUREN students, former and current participants of the one-year IEMA Master Class in Frankfurt, and the actual Ensemble Modern members. After the opening weekend these groups of musicians will appear separately, playing a series of concerts in which they will perform works by primarily very young composers – an opportunity for a cosmos of young stars to shine.

 

With Enno Poppe as Composer Conductor in Residence KLANGSPUREN has acquired an internationally acclaimed celebrity artist, a pioneer and figurehead of the generation of young “deconstructionists”. In addition to this, the festival is also presenting a series of a new type of ensemble – musician collectives that collaborate as a network, whose repertoires are built based on conceptual ideas in close cooperation with a few selected composers: ensemble mosaik, Black Page Orchestra, zeitkratzer, Trio Catch, Ensemble Nikel, True Lobster, Duo Enßle-Lamprecht, ensemBle baBel, “A” Trio.

 

In their first coproduction with Kunstraum Innsbruck and in cooperation with the Nationalgalerie at the Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin and Freunde Guter Musik Berlin KLANGSPUREN will be launching two remarkable projects with the internationally renowned artists Jorinde Voigt and Christian Marclay, whose new works will be presented in exhibitions and music performances. A pronounced link between visual art and music is evident in their work: ART AS A MUSICAL SCORE.

 

During the last weekend the theme of “musical” comics, cartoons, and graffiti comes to the fore in surprising programs with musicians active in this field: first, Christian Marclay will be presenting his new graphic score in the form of an ordinary comic book. It will be on display at the Kunstraum Innsbruck along with his visual scores Zoom Zoom and Manga Scroll. In addition, these and other (photo)graphic-filmic scores by Christian Marclay are scheduled to be performed by the well-known American experimental vocalists Shelley Hirsch and David Moss as well as ensemBle baBel from western Switzerland. Finally, Wormholes, the impressive project by the Lebanese illustrator Mazen Kerbaj and e-guitarists Sharif Sehnaoui and Tony Elieh, will round off the program on the last day. Kerbaj will draw abstract animations and comic characters in real time on a glass surface – a film drawn live, accompanied by a massive live soundtrack.

 

Another highlight is the LATE NITE LOUNGE, among the acts in the lineup are the Beirut artists with their experimental, post-Dadaist formation “A” Trio and Denseland, a funny-poetic-laconic trio, somewhere between lyric poetry and electronics, featuring the vocalist and spontaneous poet David Moss, the Tyrolean Hannes Strobl on bass, and Hannes Leichtmann on drums and electronics.

 

In keeping with the festival theme, even the “youngest stars” participating in KLANGSPUREN LOUDER – the composers’ workshop for young people – will get a chance to twinkle when their new compositions are premiered by young professional musicians as part of the pre-concert program. The same goes for the instrument-making workshop and musical cabinet of curiosities offered by the children’s project KLANGSPUREN BAREFEET – the young workshop participants will play instruments they have concocted and built themselves in a performance prior to one of the scheduled festival concerts. Further tried and true special formats, such as the RENT A MUSICIAN living room concerts featuring the international participants of the Klangspuren Academy, are also back by popular demand. The musical pilgrimage, which reached its climax last year on the Arlberg at the western border of Tyrol, sets out in a new direction this year, starting in the east at Strub Pass, and will take participants through a lovely, gently undulating landscape to St. Johann in Tyrol. The short concerts in the churches along the way will be played by various constellations (solos, duos) of young, for the most part Austrian musicians.

 

The final concert of KLANGSPUREN 2016 will take place on 09/24 and be performed by Klangforum Wien – the internationally renowned flagship of Austrian ensembles for new music – an exciting program that thematically sums up the festival with works by Eva Reiter, Johannes Kalitzke, Bernhard Gander, and Ondřej Adámek.
