Composition Seminar: Introducing Helmut Lachenmann's Mouvement

  • Seminar Room 1 3 Conservatory Drive Singapore Singapore (map)

MARTIN JAGGI presenter

Helmut Lachenmann writes in his programme note for "Mouvement - vor der Erstarrung": "A music of dead movements ... pseudo-activity which consists of nothing more than rubble .. like a beetle floundering on its back". In this Presentation we will explore what happens from the combination of that "rubble" that amounts to so much more than just musical emptiness or deathliness. "Mouvement" is also a piece that points to Lachemann's later music that now encompasses the whole range of musical sounds. From "musique concrète instrumentale" to "conventional" notes and rythms.
