Sonoric Reflections x 12TON

Nach einer kurzen Kunstpause ist der Veranstaltungszyklus für experimentelle Musik zurück. Am 21. April findet in der phantastischen Kassenhalle der Otto-Wagner-Postsparkasse im AIL (Angewandte Interdisciplinary Lab) ein “Sonoric Reflections x 12TON” statt. Mit dabei bei einem “Dialog der Generationen” sind Manu Mayr, Andreas Trobollowitsch, Stefan Fraunberger und Christoph Herndler.

12TON ist ein Veranstaltungszyklus für neue Musik der im Herbst 2020 auf dem Brick-5 Areal in Rudolfsheim-Fünfhaus ins Leben gerufen wurde. Der Ausgangspunkt dieser Veranstaltungsreihe bezieht sich auf Werke von Komponistinnen des 20. und 21. Jahrhunderts. Primär geht es darum einen musikalischen Dialog zwischen den Werken von lebenden Komponistinnen aus dem 21. Jahrhundert und renommierten Komponist:innen aus dem 20. Jahrhundert herzustellen. Bei dieser Ausgabe von 12TON wurde das Konzept offener gestaltet. Die kuratorische Auswahl inkludiert Komponisten aus dem 20. und aus dem 21. Jahrhundert. In einer Reihe stehen zeitgenössische Vertreter wie Manu Mayr, Christoph Herndler oder Stefan Fraunberger neben Karlheinz Stockhausen (1928 – 2007), Earle Brown (1926 – 2002) und Anestis Logothetis (1921 – 1994).

Das Konzept dieser Reihe soll aus musikalischer – aber auch charakterlich und persönlicher Sicht – eine Brücke zwischen den Generationen und gleichzeitig Gemeinsamkeiten und Gegensätze innerhalb des weiten Feldes zeitgenössischer Musik herstellen.
