They will all be performing together on one stage: the avant-garde orchestra Ensemble Musikfabrik, the electronic pioneers Mouse on Mars, conductor André de Ridder, and an array of percussion robots. This concert will certainly be an exceptional combination of electronic and acoustic sounds. Mouse on Mars has been at the forefront of electronic music for years now. Band members Jan St. Werner and Andi Toma prove their place with these two new compositions. The evening will begin in complete darkness with a performance of De Umbris Idearum... The acousmatic memory palace. This dark and experimental composition includes percussion robots and a lighting installation which responds to the music. It will be followed by the larger and lighter work Paeanumnion, a compelling hybrid of electronic  and  orchestral music.
