A Startled Ear

10.11.2019 05:00 pm
Essen, PACT Zollverein, Alte Waschkaue

A concert with the musician and composer Marcus Schmickler and the trumpeter Marco Blaauw. The evening begins with Robin Hoffmann's piece œhr (2006) für Hören Solo. Afterwards the duo will play a 60-minute program consisting of compositions and free improvisation. The material is the hearing itself: with a computer, various trumpets, a shell horn and the vocal chords, alienated, sometimes extreme acoustic phenomena are created that surprise, frighten, alarm, disturb, unsettle, upset or disturb the listener. Certainly, unheard music!
