Révolution Concrète

Pierre Schaeffer & Pierre Henry – Symphonie pour un homme seul
John Cage – Atlas eclipticalis
Terry Riley – In C
Dmitri Kourliandski – maps of non-existent cities. bern

Where have the currents of the avant-garde led us? “The revolution is dead. Long live the revolution!” Our programme révolution concrète musically illuminates the exhibition with Russian composers of the 20s and jumps over the pond to the America of the 70s with two abstract classics by the programme’s subsumed strangers Terry Riley and John Cage.

Further to the main concert, three performances will take place during the gallery opening hours: we place a spotlight on the relationship between audience and protagonist, let the musical score become visible and audible amidst the art. Interaction guaranteed!

We are especially excited about the world premiere of the key work by Dmitri Kourliandski, who will reflect on the question, “is revolution still alive today?”
