The 16th aDevantgarde Festival presents 2 of my compositions, both of the same origin: The legendary tape recording by Herbert Morrison about the crash of the zeppelin Hindenburg in 1937.
With „Lakehurst N.Y. 5-6-1937“ (2021) I composed a new version for 10 part string orchestra and tape, which will be premiered by the Münchener Kammerorchester conducted by Bas Wiegers in the concert „(No)Borders“ (June 13th). The earlier „Herb Morrison Report“ (2016) for viola and tape will be performed by KP Werani in his solo recital „Viola Unlimited“ (June 8th).
A first excerpt from my composition „lunar_“ can be heard at the 15th aDevantgarde festival on May the 30th and June the 1st (18:30h) @ Einstein Kultur Munich with the part „lunar_soundchecks“. I will perform more „lunar_“ -material on June 15th (20:30) @ domagk halle 50 with special „lunar_cutOuts“ and improvisations (see poster). The full- length composition will be premiered this autumn @ ESO Supernova and Frameless Munich.
„lunar_samples“ (on april 20th) is the first concert of my „lunar_“ projekt.
Together with the pianist Masako Ohta I will improvise with original and processed audio-samples of the Apollo Missions 1969-1972. For infos about the whole „lunar_“ -project and upcoming concerts please „like“ the „lunar_“ facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/lunarmarkusmuench/
