Niels Lyhne Løkkegaard’s conceptual SOUND X SOUND series has been praised internationally as “a profound offering for many subsequent generations of ears to ponder”. Now SOUND X SOUND – Music for 10 Hi-Hats (2016) has been chosen as Denmark’s official selection for the ISCM World New Music Days 2017 in Vancouver, Canada.
The festival is an annual event organised by the International Society for Contemporary Music. Since its first edition in 1923 the ISCM World New Music Days have been hosted by nations worldwide – three times by Denmark (1964, 1983, 1996).
At the Vancouver edition – 2-8 November, 2017 – Løkkegaard’s work will be performed by Redshift Music Society on 3 November.
