Nadar Ensemble, Marino Formenti

The Belgian Nadar Ensemble’s adventurous young musicians have made a name for themselves at the cutting edge of music making. For this concert they collaborate with composers who use live video and sound editing as an integral part of their music. Stefan Prins devoted his piece Mirror Box Extensions to seven of the ensemble’s musicians and their virtual lookalikes on video. Accompanied by an intriguing video choreo­graphy, Bluff by Michael Beil/Thierry Bruehl is full of humour and melody. The third piece in the programme is Kloing! by festival focus composer Olga Neuwirth, a tragicomic duel between pianist Marino Formenti and a computer controlled Bösendorfer grand piano, complementing a programme hovering between the real and the virtual.

Please note: as part of this performance there will be video recordings of the audience as well. These recordings will be deleted immediately after the show.
