Concert & Talks with Klangforum Wien
Huge shadows lie over the many scenes of new music in the area of the former Soviet Union, which is currently once again the scene of violent geopolitical conflicts. The lively exchange of important composers and performers between Tbilisi and Minsk, Yerevan and Moscow, Tashkent and Kyiv has come to a standstill and dialogue has come to a standstill. Music is once again in danger of being reduced to national self-assertion and a propaganda shield of supposed superiority.
With the multi-part concert and discourse project “THE TOWER OF BABEL”, the Klangforum Wien is designing a program that brings together uncompromising artistic positions from Armenia, Belarus, Estonia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Russia and Ukraine.
Alternating between concert and conversation, the project explores what is new in the music of today's post-Soviet societies. The project is intended to stand out like a “Tower of Babel” from this currently so battered cultural landscape: polyphonic, still utopian and shining as both a refuge and a vantage point.
