Lokatie: De Doelen
Roam: Muted - Monica Germino
Datum: zaterdag 18 mei om 16:00uOverige Informatie:
The Dutch-American violinist Monica Germino commissioned this magical piece from not one but four composers: David Lang, Michael Gordon, Julia Wolfe and Louis Andriessen. The resulting performance, which aimed to explore the extremes of audibility, is a meditation for ‘whisper violin’ and an unusually intimate performance. Performing for a maximum of 40 listeners at a time, MUTED confronts us with notions of silence and the ‘art of listening’. Germino’s use of sung texts from the famous New York Archie and Mehitabel cartoon series ensures a lighter side to this intriguing piece. MUTED is a Doelen production, already performed to acclaim in New York, Vancouver, Huddersfield, ’s-Hertogenbosch and the Oranjewoud Festival. And now as part of ROAM!
