During the composite programme ‘Aurora Electronica’, HERMESensemble and ChampdAction take you with them on an exciting journey through three sound landscapes.
Kaija Saariaho gives shape to the immaterial in ‘Lichtbogen’. In 1986 this was a milestone in the repertoire for ensemble and stereo-electronics.
With Daan Janssens things move towards a threatening darkness with the electronic instrumentation of ‘(…sans rien dire…)’, a contemporary response to Karlheinz Stockhausen’s iconic ‘Kontakte’.
The final piece in this sonorous trip is by Serge Verstockt, researcher at the Conservatoire. His ‘Les nymphéas digitales’ is a collision between digital glitches and impressionistic sound clouds.
In addition to the three electronic sound landscapes, Luciano Berio’s enchanting ‘Sequenza II’ for harp solo will be performed by Mathilde Wauters, alumna of the Royal Conservatoire Antwerp.
