Unerhörte Musik is a series of concerts for Contemporary Music at BKA-Theater in Berlin, held every single week on Tuesdays, and already for many years. Lots of great musicians performed there so far, so I feel privilaged to be there. Fortunately, COVID did not kill this event. I hope to see you in Berlin, or share that evening via streaming (you will find the link at the very end of this post).
I am happy to perform some music unperformed or unrevealed before.
First of all, there will be a compilation of my own music, soon being released on CD as LUPNIK. In this program it is called Man Magnifier. It will be for the first time to perform it for any audience. And it will be already partly improvised.
Second, there will be a first performance of a new version of Piotr Peszat’s Jenny’s Soul, composed for me and remade this year.
Third, I will perform a sound ritual by Berlin based composer Bnaya Halperin-Kaddari, where all that matters is sound, breath and movement.
These two very audial works and one intermedial piece will be completed by some of my favourite theatrical music, by the composer I love performing for many years – Aperghis, Sarhan and Wallin.
This mixture is my first solo recital after the lockdown break, which makes it special. Happy to do it yet again.
