“This is not percussion” is a series of three short concerts starting from electroacoustic music and building little by little blocks of expression through usual and unusual percussion instruments, thanks to the collaboration of our guest performer Simone Beneventi.
19:00 The first concert, “Ø to 1ØØ” will welcome the audience with a quadraphonic piece by Panayiotis Kokoras, called “Magic”. This piece was composed starting from sampled sound of a piano, and in some cases it recalls the toy piano, which appears later in the concert.
20:00 “Crash test”, the second concert, has Simone Beneventi as a protagonist and includes different pieces spanning from the duo to the quartet, in collaboration with Hertzbreakerz/Ars Nova. New music written for the concert will be played along some other more or less conceptual creations. This concert is supported by RANK.
21:00 The night will end with a double live set by Funkhaus Lund, which will bring their hacked, homemade devices to create an acid world of vintage and digital sounds.
- The bar will be open before and after each concert.
