In Michael Beil’s new work, several layers of meaning of reverse processes and their emotional effects take centre stage: contents without words – perceived only through music and movement. While the Danish composer Simon Steen-Andersen focuses on a kind of marionette theatre aesthetic in ›Black Box Music‹, deconstructing the traditional concert situation with relish, he has come up with an acoustically and visually impressive idea for the final concert: as if in a video game, the audience looks through the viewer of a hand-held camera, chasing after the composer on a race through a abandoned industrial complex.
New works commissioned by Ensemble Modern with support from the Cultural Fund Frankfurt-RheinMain and Friends of Ensemble Modern e.V.
