The Magma, Videostills

The Magma

22/09 - 07/10/2018 Akademie Graz

with Ahmed El Ghazoly aka ZULI

Magma is the viscous mass of rock which is found in the Earth’s mantle and crust but never reaches its surface, forever confined to invisible depths. To Ahmed El Ghazoly a.k.a. ZULI magma stands for the inhabitants of Cairo who, “post 2011,” seem to have no choice but to incessantly bemoan their miserable circumstances. For his audiovisual installation The Magma, the artist has captured their laments and embedded them in music. Visitors entering the 360-degree video installation instantly feel transported to the Egyptian megacity of Cairo. Straight away, with no time to acclimatize, they are swept away by the hustle and bustle of life brimming with activity. Struggling to keep their balance on the thin line between dream and nightmare they accompany ZULI as he roams the city, right into the throng of street vendors, each of them clamorously struggling to earn a livelihood. Next, they follow the artist into the cars of taxi drivers despairing at the never- ending traffic chaos, into subway cars packed with people and narrow streets covered in garbage. The Magma is the winning project of the CTM Radio Lab 2018 which, in keeping with the CTM festival theme of Turmoil, set out to capture the sound of internal and external crises.

konfrontationen 7

04/10/2018 Helmut List Halle

with students from Styria

Klangbilder (Sound images)

Short films, videos, signs and symbols, graphic scores, mental images: sound images serve as the conceptual starting point for this year’s konfrontationen 7. Participating in the musikprotokoll program for the third time, the konfrontationen project was founded in 2010 by the association Conto musicale as a cross- generational creative platform. It offers a space for artists from various genres to develop artistic concepts in collaboration with young people and to present them in live performances. In 2018, members of the Graz-based ensemble Schallfeld and ensemble zeitfluss have joined forces with students from Styrian schools to conceive new works of sound art, confronting the acoustic and visual universes of different generations in an exciting encounter.

Palimpsest

Palimpsest

04/10 & 06/10/2018 esc medien kunst labor

Kathy Hinde & Daniel Skoglund

Palimpsest by Kathy Hinde & Daniel Skoglund

Swedish sound artist Daniel Skoglund collaborates with British audiovisual artist Kathy Hinde. Skoglund constructs systems and machines to explore abstractions inspired by everyday observations. Hinde draws inspiration from behaviours and phenomena found in nature to create generative works which combine artificial intelligences with human-animal intuition. Through this collaboration, they combine their joint fascination with chance procedures and open-ended processes. Just as living beings are capable of long-term adaptation to their environment, their “open scores” shape the behaviour and evolution of their music and art. In Palimpsest, Hinde and Skoglund use a canvas spread out on the floor to create live drawings. They use mechanical graphite sequencers to create feedback loops that turn the drawings into sound. Simultaneously, the resulting sound pulses are used to manipulate the video footage. Layers of drawings, sounds and projections overlap, into an evolving ‘Palimpsest’, which is the term used to describe a manuscript on which the original writing has been effaced to make room for later writing but of which traces remain. The audiovisual process guides the act of drawing and vice versa, creating a feedback loop that allows visitors to experience a performance which gradually blurs the boundaries between actual drawing, video projection, and music. In addition, esc medien kunst labor is organizing a workshop and presenting installation works by Kathy Hinde during and after musikprotokoll.

SOL, Kurt Hentschläger

SOL

04/10 - 07/10/2018 Dom im Berg

Kurt Hentschläger

Kurt Hentschläger became known in 1991 with Granular-Synthesis, a duo founded in collaboration with Ulf Langheinrich. The artist, who was born in Linz and now lives in New York, studied under Peter Weibel, initially concerning himself with surreal machine objects before focusing on the interplay of animation, video, and sound. Perception and the human body are recurrent themes in his work. What can only just be perceived and how can the limits of perception be probed by means of art? SOL is an immersive installation which allows visitors to observe their own perceptions firsthand. An acoustic field consisting of field recordings and infra-bass samples is panned out in the Dom in Berg in Graz using a multichannel sound system. In pitch-darkness light patterns appear for the fraction of a second, causing the visitor to perceive an afterimage which interferes with the subsequent flash of light. SOL kicks off with an exclusive live performance by Kurt Hentschläger on Thursday October 4 and can be viewed as an installation on subsequent days.

Fred Frith & Bérangère Maximin

“I am a songwriter, composer, multi- instrumentalist (bass, keyboards, violin) and an improviser performing mostly on various permutations of the electric and acoustic guitar.” Though Fred Frith’s succinct self- definition is no doubt accurate it is also a noble understatement. Frith started his career in 1968 as cofounder of the iconic rock group Henry Cow and has been fascinated by the endless possibilities of playing the guitar, his main instrument, ever since. Experimenting, improvising and composing in every conceivable avant-garde lineup, he has worked with Brian Eno and Peter Brötzmann, Aki Takase and Richard Thompson, John Zorn and Robert Wyatt, Ensemble Modern and Yo-Yo Ma. In 1995 he appeared during musikprotokoll for the first (and, so far, last) time, performing a solo premiere. In 2018 Frith is returning to the festival with a surprising new lineup: he is joined, and challenged, by the composer and electronic musician Bérangère Maximin, who was born in La Réunion in 1976 and who has worked with John Zorn’s Tzadik label, among others.

Gosheven

Gosheven

04/10/2018 Dom im Berg

Gosheven

Over the past few years Bálint Szabó has delved deep into different tuning systems, ranging from Pythagorean tuning to La Monte Young’s The Well-Tuned Piano, from the scales commonly used in traditional Japanese music to Wendy Carlos’s "Super Just Intonation". The solo project Gosheven was initially inspired by the artist’s discovery of a hexaphonic pickup during a stay in New York, a device which he has been using to amplify and process the sound of each individual guitar string ever since. In addition, building his own electronic guitar has made it possible for him to spatialize discrete guitar sounds, which gives his fragile and subtle music an even stronger distinctive touch. Szabó’s music tells of the artist’s heartfelt wish to jettison socially dominant models of masculinism, of his striving for veracity and a form of existence in which being weak is regarded as strength. His latest album, Bivaq, is set to create “a shelter in a virtual place, where you can look at the Earth and think about what we’ve done—look back and look forth,” as Gosheven remarked in an interview for the platform SHAPE.

Tomoko Sauvage

For more than ten years now, Tomoko Sauvage has been exploring the acoustic qualities of water in its different aggregate states. Sauvage was born in Yokohama and moved to Paris in 2003 after studying jazz piano in New York. Inspired by Alice Coltrane and Terry Riley, she began to focus on Indian music. A crucial experience was a concert of Aanayampatti Ganesan, a master of the jal tarang, an Indian musical instrument consisting of a number of ceramic bowls filled with water that are struck with thin wooden beaters. Using various additional electronic devices and several hydrophones, she went on to develop her own electro-aquatic instrument, that she refers to as a “natural synthesizer.” Now and then, the oscillating waves, drops, and air bubbles dancing in the water create subaquatic feedbacks, that the artist modulates with great sensitivity. On a concert trip to Japan, says Sauvage, it was pointed out to her that her subtle, contemplative music sounds like a suikinkutsu: “It is almost like I traveled all around the world only to come back to my roots.”

RSO Wien & Klangforum Wien

RSO Wien & Klangforum Wien

05/10/2018 Helmut List Halle

with music by Bernd Richard Deutsch

concert grandiose

It is and has always been an artistic and a politico-cultural statement: the ORF Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra is set to perform together with Klangforum Wien, as they did for the first time at musikprotokoll in 2014. The piece was furnished by Georg Friedrich Haas, who conceived a concerto grosso for chamber ensemble and orchestra. The idea is to combine the big orchestral sense of sound with the subtleties of an ensemble- style collective of soloists, creating a new kind of musical genre that is as contemporary as it is luxurious. The orchestra as an essential body of sound over the past 250 years of European music has regularly been an artistic partner to instrumental soloists in the concert genre — from Vivaldi to Rihm, so to speak. The ensemble as a vehicle of contemporary music, on the other hand, only came into being in the form familiar to us today in the latter half of the 20th century as a collective of soloists. Klangforum Wien and the ORF Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra now perform together, embarking on new avenues in music. Following performances of pieces by Georg Friedrich Haas, Zeynep Gedizlioğlu and Vito Zuraj, 2018 sees one composition for orchestra and ensemble by Bernd Richard Deutsch.

Klangforum Wien

Klangforum Wien

05/10/2018 Helmut List Halle

with music by Jeff Weston, Fred Frith, Chaya Czernowin & Friedrich Cerha

Klangforum Wien invites you to a musical journey, Houses, a premiere by the young American composer Jeff Weston. A scholarship holder of the Ernst Krenek Foundation, Weston recently wrote a composition in which he mingles his childhood memories of the cornfields of Iowa with the new impressions of Krems’s vineyards, allowing the listener to reinterpret the Danube as the Mississippi. The dual constellation of the piece in the middle of the concert makes for something of a picture puzzle. The following piece for electric guitar and accordion is by the composer Chaya Czernowin, who wrote her first commissioned work, after studying composition, for musikprotokoll in 1996. This is followed by a solo piece for viola, a composition by Fred Frith performed for the first time in Austria by Klangforum violist Dimitrios Polisoidis. Friedrich Cerha, a composer and conductor who took part in the very first editions of musikprotokoll more than fifty years ago, is now appearing once again at the 51st installment of the festival, with Klangforum Wien set to perform his new piece Kurzzeit (Short time). It turns out the composition is actually not that short and concludes this set of extremely diverse new music after just under a quarter of an hour.

Konus Quartet

Konus Quartett & Martin Brandlmayr

05/10/2018 Helmut List Halle

with music by Chiyoko Szlavnics & Martin Brandlmayr

The saxophone quartet is regarded above all as a classical jazz lineup but also as an orchestra for arrangements of Baroque and classical compositions. The young Swiss Konus Quartett takes another very interesting approach, dedicated to a radically contemporary version of playing with four saxophones. For their musikprotokoll debut the ensemble perform a new piece for the first time in Austria together with the composer and drummer Martin Brandlmayr. Brandlmayr engages in a bewildering, flitting research into sound sources, putting the live-played instruments into the context of meandering samples, surveying degrees of distance in space, time and emotions in terms of sound, with the saxophone quartet devising spectral “musical night images.” In his piece Haunted House windows open mysteriously onto surprising spaces of sound, only to close again abruptly. The Canadian, Berlin- based composer and artist Chiyoko Szlavnics has also created a special work for the four experimental saxophonists: she accompanies the quartet with a virtual fifth player whose sinus tones combine with the multiphonic sound of the saxophones to form static and yet tremendously moving landscapes of sound.

(c) ensemble zeitfluss

ensemble zeitfluss

06/10/2018 Helmut List Halle

with music by Joanna Wozny, Klaus Lang und Christoph Renhart.

For musikprotokoll, ensemble zeitfluss are exploring three contemporary positions. The program includes a premiere of Christoph Renhart, which was only composed in summer 2018. Joanna Wozny’s composition deals with the interplays of language and noise. For years now she has been wresting new aspects from this borderline sphere in her predominantly lucid, in a sense economical, but effective compositions. Graz-based composer Klaus Lang, finally, features in this concert with a roughly twenty-minute piece that fits in seamlessly with his series of works with truly wonderful titles. At this year’s musikprotokoll he is performing a relationship drama in disguise: die heilige Clara und der schwarze Fisch (Saint Clare and the black fish). The composer even provides an explanation of the script: “Slowly and deep in thought, Saint Clare walks the long silent corridors of her convent in her clogs. She stumbles slightly over a loose stone floor tile, making a quick, loud noise as her clog hits the ground: A sharp ‘G’ bursts from her lips. Outside in the fish pond the black fish swims round and round unconcerned.” Just as well that the fish cannot hiss a sharp “G.”

Talea Ensemble

Talea Ensemble

06/10/2018 Helmut List Halle

with music by William Dougherty, Georg Friedrich Haas, Zosha Di Castri.

In the language of the 14th century, “color” means the melodic, “talea” the rhythmic pattern. With the aid of this compositional terminology, the secular world emancipates itself from the realm controlled by the church. For centuries, composers harked back to this dynamic relationship. Talea is the title of a legendary work by the French composer Gérard Grisey. It was this composition that inspired the name of the Talea Ensemble, a New York ensemble for contemporary music. Visiting musikprotokoll for the first time, this year they are performing a premiere by Georg Friedrich Haas entitled Monologue for Graz which is flanked by two works by young composers associated with Columbia University, the composer Zosha Di Castri and William Dougherty.

IKO & guts’n’faders

06/10/2018 Helmut List Halle

with music by Orestis Toufektsis, Stepha Schweiger, Reinhold Schinwald, Lorenzo Troiani,

Wood meets metal, sound meets space, the human being meets loudspeakers: the Graz-based duo guts’n’faders, who have been experimenting creatively for many years with combinations of electronic and acoustic sound- space, tackle a new challenge in the Stellations projects. The Ikosaeder (Icosahedron), IKO for short, an experimental 3D audio speaker developed at the Institute for Electronic Music and Acoustics at the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz that has long achieved cult standing in acoustic research, is the in/visible third player that turns the musicians’ duo into a trio. Together with a number of young composers, guts’n’faders explore the performative and spatial-acoustic possibilities of the IKO, putting a wide range of different variations of contemporary music “into space,” from algorithmic structures (Orestis Toufektsis) to linguistic composition (Reinhold Schinwald), from archaic murmurs (Lorenzo Troiani) to a nonchalant blend of styles between rock music and avant-garde (Stepha Schweiger).

After the concert there is a SHUTTLE bus in front of the List Halle, which goes to the following concerts in the Dom im Berg.

The Dwarfs of East Agouza

The Dwarfs of East Agouza & ZULI

06/10/2018 Dom im Berg

Maurice Louca, Sam Shalabi, Alan Bishop & ZULI

One night in Cairo I & II

The trio The Dwarfs of East Agouza consists of three experienced improvisers and musical soul mates: Maurice Louca (Alif, Lekhfa, Karkhana, among others), Alan Bishop (Sun City Girls, The Invisible Hands, among others), and Sam Shalabi (Shalabi Effect, Land of Kush, Karkhana, among others). The musicians met in Cairo in 2012, when all three were living in the same tenement in the Agouza district. They became friends and met up regularly to jam together. They discovered that while they harmonized extremely well, each of them could also retain his own distinctive personal language of music. Along with being masters of their craft, they also share a penchant for the surreal and a goodly portion of humor. “It’s exciting,” says Sam Shalabi, “because all three of us want to create something new without having any particular direction for the music in mind.” They all contribute their own specific musical interests. As a result, The Dwarfs of East Agouza combine free jazz and krautrock with south-east Asian and Arabian influences, and Egyptian shaabi music. Following up, ZULI, currently one of the most exciting exponents of the experimental electronic club music scene of Cairo, gives us a preview of his first album, soon to come out. ZULI also features at this year’s ORF musikprotokoll with his audiovisual installation The Magma.

concert d’après-midi

True to their name, this is an airy little ensemble with big sound: four transverse flutes and ten recorders — from sopranino to contrabass recorder — are among their instruments, along with a harpsichord, other keyboards, and a harp. This extremely unusual lineup gives the musicians a vast breadth of possibilities in terms of register, timbre potential, and volume range, as reflected by the word “extended” in the ensemble’s name. The fascinating repertoire of this quartet, that was founded in 2013, is gradually growing: owing to the aforementioned rare combination of instruments, it is primarily commissioned works and premieres that are characteristic of airborne extended’s concerts. For their relaxed afternoon concert at musikprotokoll, the musicians present no fewer than six premieres of the next generation — pieces by young composers created together with the ensemble in the context of their studies at the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz.

“Land of Music” – A New Year’s Concert

07/10/2018 Helmut List Halle

recreation - Großes Orchester Graz, Christian von Borries

Austria is “the land of music,” they say. This unique selfunderstanding takes on a new and frightening currency in today’s political situation, and provides the point of departure for a newly-commissioned orchestral suite by composer, film-maker, artist, and copyleft activist Christian von Borries. Popular and not-so-popular pieces of music central to the construction of Austrian national identity are recast in the age of big data. Algorithmic sampling and MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) re-scoring produce a “new year’s concert” mashup leading from Ludwig van Beethoven to Gustav Mahler and Johann Strauss, but also to Erwin Schulhoff, the communist composer who served in the Austrian army during World War I. The waltzes of Strauss — one of which is played over and over before takeoff and after landing on every Austrian Airlines flight — and the symphonies of Beethoven, Austria’s adopted son, provide data sets used to train an AI-program to compose some tunes of its own after slicing up and analyzing the music’s distinctive features. The resulting music — played by a live orchestra — is accompanied visually by images AI-generated from those used in Austrian location-marketing and nation-branding campaigns on the internet. Familiar music reappears as if after a long journey, much of it no longer intact, fragmentary like a faded memory, de- and reconstructed in the age of rebranded, digitized nationhood.

ORF musikprotokoll is a radio festival and is once again broadcasting a number of live concerts this year. We invite the public to the Ö1 Klassiktreffpunkt (Classical music meet) at esc medien kunst labor, and on Ö1 Kunstsonntag (Art Sunday) we take a condensed look back at the festival before all concerts are broadcast on Ö1 Zeit-Ton in the following weeks. On Ö1 Radiokunst Kunstradio, finally, Jacqueline George paints a portrait of her home town. “Cairo is full of sounds,” the sound artist explains, “you won’t find a moment of silence anywhere.” When she walks along the streets, it feels like being in a big orchestral concert and hearing countless musical voices all at the same time. Some appear abruptly, others slowly fade in and out again. Some are very close, others far away. Cairo is loud, George continues, but the incessant noise is also a cornucopia. For many years now, she has been collecting the diverse sounds, weaving them together in her very personal stories.
