Düsseldorf, NRW Forum


Opening night of this years “Schönes Wochenende – Festival für modernes Hören! will be a concert event with remix and open improvisation. The norwegian remix-collective PUNKT with Jan Bang and Erik Honoré will record the live music played by soloists of the Ensemble Musikfabrik, and then further develop the music in a live-remix. The material will be split, compressed, stretched, layered, deformed and dissected, the things heard simultaneously re- and deconstructed.
