Memories in Music - Festival zeitgenössischer Musik

Eröffnung: Livestream des Konzerts „Leichhardt in Australien“ mit Werken von Kirsten Reese und Erkki Veltheim und dem Ensemble Adapter

The 19th-century expeditions of the Brandenburg scientist Ludwig Leichhardt along with colonial settlement projects have left deep scars in the north of Australia inhabited by indigenous communities. The two world premieres by Kirsten Reese and Erkki Veltheim (with Daniel Wilfred) for Ensemble Adapter are dedicated to the varied encounters between indigenous and Western knowledge systems, cultures and ways of life, the reappraisal of colonial structures and making indigenous culture visible. The live-streamed opening concert becomes part of the trail and echoes in the concert scenario.

Reese describes her long process of research and learning in a complex web of material and sound linking four formats that has led to a new approach to and an expanded understanding of hearing/listening. Drawing on points of intersection in space and time between Leichardt, Wagner, three baritones, three Australian owl species and Daniel Wilfred, a songman of the Wägilak clan from Ngukurr, Veltheim has created a multi-level interwoven musical dialogue between parallel worlds and transformations.
