Transit 2017 The sound of tomorrow
Due: October 20, 2017 - October 22, 2017
Transit aims to showcase the music of today, es-pecially those things we suspect will be relevant tomorrow as well and, who knows, may even set the tone for the future. We believe in presenting a sneak preview of the sound of tomorrow. This year we’re presenting a lot of new discov-eries, both in performers, with the New Yorkers of Yarn/Wire and the swagger of the Berlin-Icelandic Ensemble Adapter and composers: Nicole Lizée, Heleen Van Haegenborgh, Christopher Trapani, Aaron Einbond, Ann Cleare, Sarah Nemtsov and Simon Løffler. It is a young group, full of quality, daring and new ideas. This year, you can discover why a neon bulb is a musical instrument (Løffler), how an experi-mental film script can become a composition (Van Haegenborgh), how the human voice can be both familiar and totally weird (Walshe), and how four guitars take over the space like a sculpture (Zwerm). If that’s too much, we can always go catch our breaths at the Late Night Concert, Huba de Graaff’s Pornopera.
