A performance of a string quartet without musicians – the instruments play by themselves, responding to vibrations generated by means of synthesizers and little speakers. What might sound impossible was developed and realized by the collective ksvu from Bolzano. Periodic oscillations, impulses and sounds form the musical basis of the concert; together with projection mapping by akirasrebith.
The experience for the audience is taken to the extreme: in a completely dark environment, the quartet Mivos from New York plays “In iij Noct” – a composition by Georg Friedrich Haas. In total darkness, it seems as if the music was coming from all sides “and your imagination forces the episodic piece to coalesce into a singular, visceral statement. It would be hard to think of a more involving way to hear” (The New York Times).
