LISTEN ENSEMBLE & MURCOF – CONCERT #1
On Saturday, September 24th the Spatial Sound Institute opens its doors again to the public for two concerts in 4DSOUND by Mexican composer/producer Murcof and fourteen classical musicians of the Listen Ensemble from Paris, France.
Murcof is the stage name of the Mexican electronic artist Fernando Corona. Over fifteen years Corona has established a unique sound that blends electronic music with more classical sources. Evoking, like composers such as Arvo Pärt, Henryk Gorecki or Giya Kancheli, the great themes of life, death and eternity, he distinguishes himself in his work by his attention to detail, his rolling tempos and his sense of spatialization.
The Listen Ensemble is a chamber music orchestra. The ensemble develops new interactions between technologies and musical language. Having no director, the interpretation of the Listen ensemble is a result of dialogues, cooperation and combined listening by the musicians.
Besides the presentation of new compositions that are specially composed for 4DSOUND, Murcof and the Listen Ensemble will create a spatial remix of Terry Riley’s masterpiece ‘In C’ for orchestra and electronics.
The concert programme will be presented twice on the 24th of September, starting at 19:30 and at 22:00.
