Improvisation Museum
Øyvind Torvund & Splittergruppe II: Burkhard Beins, Anat Cohavi, Kai Fagaschinski, Robin Hayward,Steve Heather, Andrea Neumann, Ignaz Schick und Mario de Vega.

Through its concert series »Das Klatschen der zweiten Hand«, Labor Sonor is exploring the essence of composition and improvisation. Pieces by composer-performers – “real-time-music« – are interpreted anew by others. What types of transcription and translation can be found? Does the composer-performer remain autonomous? What forms of notation and instruction develop? In the first part of the concert, compositions by »The International Nothing« (Kai Fagaschinski & Michael Thieke, both clarinet) are re-interpreted by »The Still« (Rico Repotente, guitar; Derek Shirley, bass; Steve Heather, drums). The original performers will be present. The Labor Sonor concert is the second performance with Splittergruppe II.

Discussion – presented by Fernanda Farah, Christian Kesten, Arthur Rother

»Improvisation Museum« is a co-production from ausland, the DAAD Artists-in-Berlin Program, the Berliner Festspiele/MaerzMusik and the Borealis Festival Bergen, in collaboration with the Berlin Natural History Museum and with the support of the Norwegian Composers Fund. The concert series Labor Sonor has been made possible by the initiative neue musik berlin e.V.
