Questioning usual and past performance practices in live-electronics, re-interpreting pioneer works of electronic music from the 20th Century
The Austrian vocal ensemble Cantando Admont and the Vienna-based composer-performer duo Nimikry join together to present works for voices, solo instruments and electronics.
This collaboration started with a new electronic realization of L. Nono´s monumental piece “Das Atmende Klarsein” for Bass Flute, small choir and live-electronics.
After a successful production and new electronic realisation of L. Nono´s mas- terpiece “Das Atmende Klarsein”, the two collectives engaged on a journey to explore new possibilities for the combination of human voice with instrumental gestures, as well as electronic manipulation. The two collectives also explored the possibilities to re-contextualize ancient music in juxtaposition with electronic music.
The aesthetical focus in this cooperation is set on works dealing with manipulation, diverse processing and the use of live-electronics. Cantando Admont and Nimikry present new works for voices, augmented instruments and electronics in combination with Luigi Nono´s . “Das Atmende Klarsein”.
