Ensemble Airborne Extended | Parallel Textures | Contemporary Music Lab of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki | Thessaloniki State Orchestra Rehearsal Space | Wed April 10th, 2019 | 20:30
The exceptional Austrian ensemble Airborne Extended premiers my work “She sees by formless gleams…” for bass flute, great bass recorder (paetzold), and harp.
Ensemble airborne extended was founded in 2013 and is a female Quartett for contemporary music consisting of the instruments harp, harpsichord/keyboard, flutes, recorders/Paetzoldflutes, with and without electronics and performance. The unusual combination of these instruments is the starting point for a sensitive and nuanced search for unknown tonal combinations. Many of the tones evoke associations to earlier eras. The group’s effort to pry the instruments away from their bourgeois context and to use them in a contemporary fashion is a referential experience.
