Wed, 29.06.2016, 7 pm CEST
Since 1985, Canadian composer Gilles Gobeil has been working on producing works in the area of Acousmatic Music and Mixed Music. Many of his compositions are based on the so-called »cinéma pour l’oreille« [Cinema for the Ears], others are inspired by literary works that are visualized through the medium of sound. As part of the interview between Gilles Gobeil and Ludger Brümmer (Head of the ZKM | Institute for Music and Acoustics) the composer’s way of working will be examined in more detail.
Following the interview, the concert »Acousmatique Canadienne« will take place in the ZKM_Cube, through which Gilles Gobeil will interpret his own acousmatic works as well as the works of other Canadian composers.
