Kanding & Bretschneider Concert & Release Party at VEGA

VEGA and EarUnit presents a different, unique concert experience, where electronica and ambient meets classical music. This happens when Frank Bretschneider (DE) and Ejnar Kanding (DK) together with the ensemble Contemporánea enter the stage at Lille VEGA February 28, 2013.

What happens when the German electronica tradition meets a classical trained composer? At this concert audiences can experience the unique result of collaboration between two composers from two different musical traditions. On stage they will form a symbiosis of two expressions in order to create a completely new. Ensemble Contemporánea’s musicians on bass clarinet, violin, double bass and percussion will interact with the computer’s surround sounds live, while Berlin based Lillevan creates visuals.

Frank Bretschneider and Ejnar Kanding have in collaboration composed the music that ensemble Contemporánea will perform live and that the Danish record label Dacapo Records releases on the album Auxiliary Blue. The concert introduces at genre mix of electronica, micro minimalism, glitch, electronic listening music and classical music.

Bretschneider is one of the vital actors on the global electronic scene and is a key figure in the famous label Raster Noton. He is known for his precise sound, complex, interwoven rhythmic structures and his minimal, flowing expression. Kanding, who is the leader of Contemporánea, has specialised in composing for acoustic instrument in interaction with the computer’s many tonal opportunities. A music that ranges from the delicately simple to the complex textures in colourful worlds of mirrors.
