»Opus latericium« is inspired by a Roman adobe brick building from the imperial era. Triangular bricks united to form a dotted, polished, hard and fireproof surface: from the outside, Mikel Urquiza's repetitive music breaks through the hard shell, destructively hammering in fast motion, exposing the ruin. What remains of the wall bears little resemblance to the beginning. Brittle and weathered, a scattered remnant. »Six Signs« by Sarah Nemtsov is also built on a deceptive foundation of instability. What seems static begins to take on a life of its own and change shape. Fragile tones of longing, shrouded in a mysterious veil of sound, enter into an interplay with the insistent throbbing of sharp-edged sounds, building up to opposite poles that ultimately cancel each other out. In »Animal Smileys«, Jorge Sánchez-Chiong uses completely different tools to create music that is no less intense. Foreign string sounds, dragged through the experimental laboratory of electronic effects, deformed, denatured, saturated. A rich sound experience that makes your ears spin on the experimental trance floor. Victor Ibarra's compositions are usually characterized by a very precise handling of harmonies and sound structures and a focus on rhythmic accents. In contrast, Katharina Rosenberger's works question musical production and reception habits from several angles. They will both be contributing very different new works to the concert.
