Moderation Dr. Nathalie Knapp
Supported by a healthy dose of humour, this event challenges the cliché that new music is too "academic" and only accessible to an audience with prior knowledge of the genre. In a concert and discussion format, the
flautist, author and composer Jeremias Schwarzer is joined by Australian composer Liza Lim. Schwarzer will play excerpts from the opera "The Navigator" which Lim composed in 2008. In conclusion the two will talk about the composition and the sounds heard, and will be examining the question: How does one communicate new ideas of sound that have never been heard before?

The discussion will be moderated by philosopher, editor and author Dr. Natalie Knapp, who is not an expert of new music and who will thus represent the views of the general public. Jeremias Schwarzer works as an author, composer and musician and is artist-in-residence at radialsystem.V. from October 2009 onwards. He has worked with composers including Toshio Hosokawa, György Kurtág,
Salvatore Sciarrino and Rolf Riehm and has premiered over 50 works. As soloist, lecturer, and founder of the Ensemble Vivi Felice (for early music) and Ensemble Avantage (for new music), he unites two different musical worlds. The Australian Liza Lim holds a PhD in philosophy and is an internationallyrenowned composer. Her work has been influenced by a deep fascination for Asian - in particular Chinese - culture and performance practices, as well as the culture of the Australian Aborigines. The issue of overcoming cultural boundaries can be found in her operas, orchestral works and installations. She was a guest of the Artists-in-Berlin programme in 2007/08.
