#bebeethoven: Instrumental Convergence

Bundeskunsthalle | 53113 Bonn

Alexander Schubert fiddles around at the interface between people, music and technology.

The evening offers an excursion into the composer's technoid world of sound: four of his works can be heard, including the new composition "Instrumental Convergence" with the Ensemble Resonanz and "Wikipiano", which can be co-composed online.

People make music with their avatars, artificial intelligence expands the performance practice. What happens when technology takes control of a concert?

#bebeethoven: Vespers and Dreams

Universität Bonn, Aula | 53113 Bonn

The longing for rituals that create identity and community is something prehistoric, even in music.

Claudio Monteverdi's Vespers of Mary - a strictly ordered yet revolutionary work - has fascinated people for 400 years.

Harpsichordist and #bebeethoven Fellow Elina Albach and her ensemble CONTINUUM confront the work with the contemporary cycle Vespers for a New Dark Age, a piece by Missy Mazzoli revolving around rituals from today's time. Intense and beguiling.
