This autumn, PHACE plays their debut at the HCMF, the most important festival for contemporary music in England (Huddersfield).
The diverse program includes our classic DW 24 “Loops for Al Jourgensen” for solo saxophone and ensemble by Austrian composer Bernhard Lang, who sketches an electro-acoustic portrait of Al Jourgensen, founder and head of the Industrial-Band Ministry. A hyper-virtuous solo part for saxophone (Michael Krenn) quotes mainly two musicians: Eric Dolphy und Evan Parker.
Moreover, the British premiere of used redux by Jorge Sanchez-Chiong and the world premiere of the new composition by British composer Laura J. Bowler will be presented.
