With Carlos Gutiérrez

Using four themes – myths of creation, invasion/migration, technology and incarnation – the Bolivian composer Carlos Gutiérrez (fellow 2018) explores the relationship between so-called civilised and primitive societies in sound, text and movement and fundamentally challenges the notion of a separation of nature and culture among the colonisers as opposed to indigenous societies. In live interventions, the audio-visual installation by the Orquesta Experimental de Instrumentos Nativos (ECOEIN) occasionally meets the real-time musicians Ute Wassermann and Sabine Vogel, the musician Jorge Villaseca and the dancer Sharon Mercado.

Online from 9 May, 7 p.m.

Artistic director: Carlos Gutiérrez

With the Chamber Orchestra of the Orquesta Experimental de Instrumentos Nativos (ECOEIN; Carlos Gutiérrez, Andrea Alvarez, Tatiana López, Romina Quisbert), and live: Ute Wassermann, voice, bird flutes; Sabine Vogel, flutes; Jorge Villaseca, indigenous instruments; Sharon Mercado, dance

In the context of Memories in Music – Festival of contemporary music.

Installations, audio walks, symposium, concerts
Music and sound store and release memories of experiences, realities, history and culture. On a variety of levels, the festival “Memories in Music” affords insight into the strategies adopted by composers and musicians in processing these strands of memory musically and thus participating in the writing of history, the culture of memory and social transformation.

„Memories in Music“ is a festival of the music section at the Akademie der Künste.

In connection with the program „„Arbeit am Gedächtnis – Transforming Archives““.

Artistic director: Julia Gerlach, Music Section of the Akademie der Künste, in cooperation with Samir Odeh-Tamimi & Walter Zimmermann
