    Commune

    Wien, WUK Projektraum

    Stuart Saunders Smith (*1948 in Portland, Maine, USA) is one of the leading composers of his generation in the USA. As a composer, poet and editor of literary works, he has created an extensive catalog of works. The spectrum of his scores, which go back to many different musical and extra-musical sources of inspiration, reaches from graphic to complex notes. Similar to Morton Feldman, the music of Stuart Saunders Smith aims to dissolve the sense of time and space.

    Commune for vibraphone and ensemble, composed for Berndt Thurner – Austrian premiere!

    Stadt ohne Juden

    Wien, Wiener Konzerthaus

    Silent Movie: Die Stadt ohne Juden /The City Without Jews (Österreich, 1924)
    directed by: H.K. Breslauer
    music: Olga Neuwirth (2017)

    This startlingly prescient silent film from inter-war Vienna, now with score from Olga Neuwirth, chillingly imagines – and astonishingly predicts – the consequences as a city succumbs to intolerance. Made in 1924, Die Stadt ohne Juden is ominous, portentous, and completely unforgettable. H K Breslauer’s satirical dystopia shows the cultural and economic impoverishment of a city that expels its Jewish population, and is disturbingly prophetic in its depiction of the murderous anti-semitism in Vienna in the wake of the First World War. For cinema buffs, or anyone interested in 20th-century history, this Austrian expressionist film is essential viewing. But composer Olga Neuwirth is a cinephile herself (in 2003 she created an opera based on David Lynch’s Lost Highway) and her specially commissioned score for amplified ensemble and electronics will add another wholly compelling dimension.

    PHACE series @ KH | ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND

    Wien, Wiener Konzerthaus

    With Adventures in Wonderland we seek the confrontation with an artificial reality and perceptions that cross the familiar ways of perceiving – a game with unusual spatial and temporal irritation. The intertwining of image (Alfred Hitchkock, Lewis Carroll) and music by Olga Neuwirth and Raquel García-Tomás finds their culmination in the perfect synaesthetic fusion of audiovisual parameters in Alexander Schubert‘s reflection on the relationship between man and machine and the representation of the human body in the digital age with precise synchronization of light impulses, music and visual impressions. Furthermore, works by Januibe Tejera, Clara Iannotta and Belma Bešlić-Gál.
