Music, Body & Machines

If the concert tonight were just called Music & machines, it would be easy to guess that this is an event of the Transparent Sound New Music Festival. These contextual connections, where music as the leading feature comes under the influence of other fields, make the festival unique. In this case however the extraordinary Swiss Vortex Ensemble adds a “body” of even more excitement to the program.

The Ensemble created in 2005 devotes itself exclusively to new music. When choosing from their proposed programs we asked if they could also perform a classical Swiss piece or transcription, since this is the topic of the festival this year, their answer was no, because they perform only the latest compositions by the young generation which is their primary mission. The music-body-machine connection is paired with the high professionalism of their performances – as a composer friend, whose music Vortex Ensemble recently performed, made us understand a month or so ago.
