ISEA2010 RUHR Concerts

ISEA2010 RUHR, 16th International Symposium on Electronic Art, visits the borderland of electronic and electro-acoustic music.

On Sun 22 August 2010 the ICEM (Institute for Computer Music and Electronic Media) at the Folkwang University presents the Day of Sound with concerts, performances and sound art installations. Selected project submissions from the ISEA2010 RUHR Call for Proposals will be presented alongside works produced in the ICEM studios.

On the evenings of 24, 26 and 27 August 2010 the Konzerthaus Dortmund will turn into a site of musical experiments. During ISEA2010 RUHR artists of several generations will present their recent compositions: uncompromising electronic music from Kontakt der Jünglinge, the pioneer of electronic music Éliane Radigue (fr), the eager to experiment doctor of organomics Mudboy (us), the Japanese avant-gardist Keiichiro Shibuya (jp), the master of reverberation Fennesz (at) and the subtle cellist Hildur Guðnadóttir (is).

Extraordinary instruments – Guðnadóttir's halldorophone or Mudboy's electronically expanded organ – as well as extraordinary sounds are the highlights of this exceptional concert week. Once more, the Konzerthaus Dortmund presents itself as a place for a highly contemporary concert indulgence. The music of these international artists offers a broad variety: It impresses with the dark beauty of the violoncello. It tests the concentration of sound when expanding the grand piano with electronic techniques. It pervades the hall with guitar sounds soaked with reverberation. And it aims high to create fine vibrant sounds.

Charlemagne Palestine gives an organ concert in Duisburg-Ruhrort. He grants us the honour of the week with the realisation of his intensive, ritual organ music in Ruhr’s St. Maximilian Church.
