Jorge Sanchez-Chiong
Animal Smileys for string trio and electronics, 2022

 

Opus Latericium is inspired by a Roman adobe construction of the imperial period. Triangular bricks, united to a dotted, polished, hard and refractory surface: from the outside, the repetitive music of Mikel Urquiza destructively hammers in time-lapse the hard shell, exposes the ruin. What remains of the wall shows little resemblance to the beginning. Fractured and weathered, a scattered remnant. Sechs Zeichen by Sarah Nemtsov is also built on a deceptive foundation of instability. What seems static begins to take on a life of its own and change shape. Fragile sounds of longing, wrapped in a mysterious veil of sound, enter into an interplay with the insistent throbbing of sharp-edged sounds, rocking up to opposing poles that ultimately cancel each other out. In Animal Smileys, Jorge Sanchez-Chiong uses completely different tools to create music that is no less intense. Strange string sounds, dragged through the experimental laboratory of electronic effects, deformed, denatured, saturated. A rich sound experience that makes the ears gyrate on the experimental trance floor. Victor Ibarra’s compositions are usually characterized by a very precise handling of harmonies and tone structures and attention to rhythmic accents. In contrast, Katharina Rosenberger’s works question both musical production and reception habits from several angles. Both of them will probably contribute very different new works to the concert.

Outer Space for bariton saxophone, percussion, electric guitar, object performer, film und electronics, 2018
Film by Peter Tscherkassky

 

A woman, on the run from her own reflection, pursued by invisible enemies, driven into an errant scenario of annihilation. A horror-like dance of faces and reflections that spills over the edges and takes possession of the space outside. With music by Clara Iannotta, Peter Tscherkassky’s short film Outer Space unfolds an almost overwhelming sensual effect. Music and film are closely intertwined in very different ways in Estudio Sonomecánico no. 1 – Tiempo Suspendido by Raquel García-Tomás. Less of a soundtrack or background to the images, García-Tomás allows cinematic gestures and movements to emerge anew in the music and approaches standstill and timelessness with humorous everyday images. Daniela Terranova takes the musical classic “Over the Rainbow”, burned into the collective memory by Judy Garland in the Wizard of Oz and a Hawaiian ukulele, as the starting point for Rainbow Dust in the Sky. Subtly pulverized and crushed to dust, the tracks of the song become nuanced, diluted echoes that, circling meditatively within themselves, suggest the ritualistic character of a lullaby. A constant, unstoppable flow is evident in Joanna Bailie’s Dissolve. In time-absorbing transitions, both the film and the sonic events alternate between concrete states and abstract moments, reality dissolves beyond recognition. Lorenzo Troiani goes into the inner world, playing in La Vita delle Conchiglie with the returning resonances and feedbacks in the body of instruments, creating a hidden and mysterious sound world, as if inside a conch shell.

A Dark Light / A Black Sun  for ensemble and electronics, 2023 (wp)
Comissioned by PHACE

Fausto Romitelli
Professor Bad Trip: Lesson I – III for ensemble and electronics, 1998-2000

Inspired by the descriptions of the effects of mescaline in the works of Henri Michaux, Fausto Romitelli’s work is all about “the artificial, the distorted, the filtered.” Romitelli forges sound sculptures that materialize like surreal musical visions of the deformations, distortions and disfigurements in Francis Bacon’s paintings. Influenced by the distorted and “dirty” sounds of psychedelic rock music, Romitelli creates a unique music that unfolds waves of melodic fragments over seductively fragile harmonies and exalted embellishments and rushing glissandi, only to collapse again and again. Material is jolted, develops expressive metastases, like a virus-infested musical mutant that becomes a beautifully ghoulish monster and captivates. The music of Alexander Kaiser, who in [ˈprɪz(ə)m] takes on the promises of an ideal world through area-wide monitoring of communication in the Western hemisphere, has a similarly wild balance sheet. Musically, the piece can be understood as a transformation of energy, with diverse influences from jazz, punk and electronic music merging into a rhythmically pronounced soundscape. More than enough expressive energy can usually be found in the music of Emre Sihan Kaleli, who likes to work with intensities, impulsivity and changeability and will contribute a new work for the concert.

The surface reveals nothing about the nature of the reverse side. The closer you get to it, the greater the counterpressure. Whoever wants to cross the threshold to see what lies behind it must expend an additional measure of energy. In LIMINA, everything revolves around the idea of considering sound and image as material into which one immerses oneself in order to forge one’s physical features as well as one’s mode of perception. Distorted images, deformed reflections of what has been, bent perspectives, following their own logic generate audiovisual constellations where reality melts into unrecognizability. Processes of extreme deceleration and acceleration, let us examine, as if with a magnifying glass, how grainy, holey, luminous, dense and elastic a sound can be when viewed from the other side of the threshold.

Before each concert, at 6:45 p.m., Juri Giannini will speak with composers of that evening at Salon PHACE

Januibe Tejera
Hors Cadre for saxophone, violin, cello and piano, 2013/2022

 

Somewhere in between, between the tempered tones, the regular rhythms, between the decimal places, a picture of unexpected variety opens up. With closeness comes friction and interaction, from minimal differences a wondrous attraction can arise. In someone will remember us, Elisabeth Harnik follows in the footsteps of the ancient poetess Sappho, very carefully transfering millennia-old fragments and yet not quite faded verses into her music and using them to build a bridge to the present. In Leaving in Focus by Dylan Lardelli, the instruments get in each other’s way much more powerfully, to the point where perception no longer necessarily reflects reality. Layer by layer, Martin Jaggi uncovers sound material in Strata with archaeological sensitivity, works his way into the depths of music history and uses the fragments found to trace a development from its present end. 301.6/301.8 by Monika Szpyrka sounds out like a breath, a whisper, focusing on subtle differences in intonation. Lorenzo Troiani goes into the inner world, plays with the returning resonances and feedbacks in the body of instruments in La Vita delle Conchiglie, creates a hidden and mysterious world of sound, like inside a mussel shell. Januibe Tejera, on the other hand, leaves the frame and, in a new version Hors Cadre, looks at what seems to be outside.

Renacer addresses the natural cycles of birth and rebirth and looks into a possible future at the dawn of a biotechnological revolution. Francisco Deco’s lyrics open up multifaceted visions of existence where death and transience take a back seat to the power of germination and regeneration. In many of Alberto Carretero’s works, biological processes serve as inspiration and blueprint for his music. Using artificial intelligence and membrane computing, he develops algorithmic compositions that simulate the growth and behavior of living organisms and translate them into sonic narratives. On the one hand, life within a cell and its membranes is made audible by means of sonification. On the other hand, the personal interpretation of these biological processes creates a symbiosis with libretto and images, and from this in turn new musical gestures, sounds and forms. Electronics and video are closely and mutually connected to the bio-inspired compositional processes. Mutation, mitosis, meiosis, tissue formation, reproduction, and nerve connections open a musical reflection process and become a metaphor of genesis: birth, rebirth, and creation itself.

PROGRAM

PHACE is a regular guest at the Osterfestival Tirol and looks at the respective theme with works from the 21st century, including Tyrolean premieres. This year it is the expansion of musical possibilities through the integration or imitation of technology. The concert is dedicated to one of the pioneers of electronic music, Horacio Vaggione. The Argentine composer (*1943) influenced and inspired entire generations, both as a teacher and through his music. Two of his most recent works for solo instrument and electronics can be heard this evening. Playing with the constant shifting of sounds in Shifting Mirrors, a network of non-connected mirrors in which the performer moves. The expansion of sound spaces and the reinterpretation of instruments is the focus of Timpani Trek. He is supported by young composers who deal with the now very advanced possibilities of technology in their own personal way: Lorenzo Troiani in search of the inner sound of shells, Helmut Oehring and his musical implementation of the locked-in syndrome , Pierre Jodlowski with This Leads To An Emotional Stasis about the timeless state and Mirela Ivičević with a premiere.

György Ligeti
Aventures (1962) and Nouvelles Aventures (1962-65) for 3 voices and 7 Instruments

In honor of the old master and yet with new adventures – György Ligeti’s Aventures and Nouvelles Aventures have opened up new spaces for vocal music, emphasizing articulatory expression and showing singing as an independent musical art even without linguistic meaning. On the occasion of the composer’s 100th birthday, we would like to honor this turning point in the history of new music not only with a performance, but also with two commissioned works. The young composer Hristina Šušak is writing a new piece for the same cast, equally as a contrast across time and age, and Andreas Trobollowitsch is creating a performative music installation as an homage to the influential composer. With Pierluigi Billone’s Δίκη Wall, a very exciting work by a well-established contemporary artist is also on the program.

Prior to each concert, at 18:45, Juri Giannini will discuss the music with the composers within the setting of “Salon PHACE”.
