21 December 2022 Interwoven Sounds Spaces – Tension by Ann Rosén





New works by: Ana Maria Rodriguez, Ann Rosén, Cat Hope, Malte Giesen.


The workshop concert explores the possibilities of telematic music performances in new music. Ensembles in Berlin and Piteå present performing and interacting together at a distance and explore new musical ensemble practices through textile and network technologies.

Can two ensembles performing hundreds of kilometers apart in Berlin and Piteå, Sweden, tangibly make music and interact with each other and in this way create a completely new musical experience for the audience and the ensemble playing of the musicians in both places? This is exactly what the project “Interwoven Sound Spaces” explores, the possibilities of telematic music performances in new music. New textile and network technologies enable a tangible interaction between musicians* who are spatially in different places. The results of this research will be presented by “Interwoven Sound Spaces” in a joint interactive workshop concert with Ensemble KNM in Berlin and Ensemble Norrbotten NEO in Piteå, Sweden.
