#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.

#bebeethoven: C.R.E.D.O.

Bundeskunsthalle | 53113 Bonn

C.R.E.D.O. is a cosmic radio apparatus for delusional observations. An artificial intelligence trained in human theories, fantasies and speculations about extraterrestrial life is desperately searching for the final proof with the help of a radio telescope: is there someone out there?

Installed on the roof of the Bundeskunsthalle, the signals that C.R.E.D.O. receives are faded away and after dark are visualized from there on the outer skin of the Post Tower.
