Lichtspiel performed in north america

Posted on Aug 7, 2018 in / Serial Events

from 22. June to 3. July my composition Lichtspiel was performed in the context of the Bauhaus-Project „Klingende Utopien“ in USA and Canada. Concerts were given as multimedial program at Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival 2018 (26. June 2018), Toronto Jazz Festival 2018 (27. June 2018) and Ottawa Jazz Festival 2018 (29. June 2018).

The work was commissioned by the Deutsche Musikrat on the occasion of the 100th birthday of Bauhaus in contextualization with Lazlo Moholy-Nagy’s famous movie „Lichtspiel. Schwarz-Weiß-Grau“. The work was performed as a performative installation with the movie by the Bujazzo Ensemble with conductor Niels Klein.
