In its musikprotokoll debut, the Austria-based Black Page Orchestra plays a concert that offers unique live experiences. In collaboration with composer and performer Koka Nikoladze, the ensemble turns accustomed ways of hearing and seeing on their heads: the native Georgian composer, now based in Norway, spontaneously creates an animated musical score in real time that is projected for the audience and ensemble to see. It is a work that blurs the boundaries of composition, improvisation, and interpretation.
Serbian composer Maja Bosnić is known for her sophisticated multimedia concepts. For Graz, she has created a piece for hearing protectors, amplified ensemble, video, and electronics. The hearing protection allows audiences to experience high-impulse sounds corporeally without the risk of physical injury. Clara Iannotta’s music for Peter Tscherkassky’s short film, Outer Space develops explosive power. We can expect the same from the new piece by Swedish-Israeli composer and noise musician Dror Feiler.
