klub katarakt 11
International Festival for Experimental Music
Klub katarakt provides a multimedia platform for new music. Over four days we go on a musical and audio-visual journey through the disciplines, via all listening and viewing habits. And it’s not just the audio experience that’s unconventional – the forms of presentation are too. For klub katarakt is consciously not a festival simply for new music, rather it is for experimental music. It explores and exploits new dimensions of audio-visual perception and functions as a platform for the mutual influence of different disciplines and trends. Musical concepts, the static sonic elements and long performances meet process-orientated or dramaturgically broken concepts. Interactive electronics impinge on new instrumental techniques and on innovative video works. This year’s participants include: Composer in Residence Christian Wolff with the world premiere of his piece, ‘Where’, piano virtuoso and New York School specialist Sabine Liebner and many artists from the Hamburg scene.
