International festival for adventurous music and The Hague based Korzo theatre continue their collaborative concert series after the summer. First up is the eleventh edition on 5 October, with the iconic ambient producer William Basinski performing an exclusive show of On Time Out Of Time, whereas New York composer Lea Bertucci performs her latest album, Metal Aether.
Critically acclaimed avant-garde composer William Basinski is a contemporary master of ambient music. Classically trained as a musician, his work spans sound and video art, expanding the boundaries of the aural landscape. Inspired by minimalists, he developed his own sonic vocabulary and signature meditative melancholic style. In On Time Out of Time, Basinski uses exclusive recordings of gravitational waves resulting from a collision of black holes 1.3 billion years ago hitting Earth for the first time to create a visceral experience.
Lea Bertucci is an American composer and performer whose work describes relationships between acoustic phenomena and biological resonance. In addition to her instrumental practice, (alto saxophone and bass clarinet), her work incorporates multi-channel speaker arrays, electroacoustic feedback, extended instrumental technique and tape collage. Deeply experimental, her work is unafraid to subvert musical expectation. At Rewire x Korzo, she will perform her latest album Metal Aether, showcasing her role as a performer. Metal Aether develops a language of extended technique for alto saxophone that is based on a spectral, psychoacoustic, and non-linguistic approach to the instrument.
Rewire x Korzo is an ongoing collaboration between The Hague-based festival for adventurous music, Rewire, and contemporary dance and performance venue, Korzo. The organizations have joined forces to put on a series of dynamic concert evenings centred on new music and performance.
Musical Material, a collaboration between Rewire and West, invites specialists in the fields of music, art and reflection to discuss their expertise in the intimate setting. On Friday 5 October, we present two extraordinary guests at the former American Ambassy: avant-garde composers and musicians William Basinski and Lea Bertucci.
