Waves by Poets
Wellen durch Dichter. Ondes d’après poètes. Ondas por poetas
Fri, April 25, 2008 8 pm CEST, Concert

The project "Waves by Poets", initiated by Pedro Bittencourt, is an assemblage of chamber music, electronics, poetry and video. The theme of the poems is the ocean. As transitions between the musical pieces of the evening they will be read out in the original version (French, German, Spanish and Portuguese) and accompanied by videos. A number of the videos form an essential element of the compositions, which will be interpreted by the "Ensemble Abstraï". The compositions were especially produced for this project and will be performed for the first time on this evening.
