Blurred Edges Update

Unfortunately Matthieu Philippe de l’Isle cannot come to the concert on Thursday (see below) due to health reasons. So we have to delay the premiere of his piece to another time. Putain!

Still, we have a nice programme, which looks like this:

Matthias Kaul: Some Hot Bottles Coolin’ Down (2015, world premiere) for three performers

Ignacio Fernández-Bollo: Q. K. (2015, world premiere) for organ, guitar, cello, percussion

Jan Feddersen: Slides (2015, world premiere) for three electric guitars with e-bows

Robert Engelbrecht: Nellys Boudoir (2009) version for piano, 2 electric guitars, percussion and tape

 

Blurred Edges 2015

We will be part again of this year’s Blurred Edges festival in Hamburg and will present an evening with premieres at the Nachtasyl im Thalia Theater: Thursday, June 18, 21:45

Guests this time are Matthias Kaul, Matthieu Philippe De l’Isle and Ignacio Fernández-Bollo.

No need to tell much about Matthias Kaul, and we are proud to play the premiere of his new piece Some Hot Bottles Coolin’ Down – supervised by the composer himself. He will also join us on percussion in some pieces.

We are happy to play again with our old friend Matthieu from Paris, member of eddie135, Casse Gueule and Le Reveil Des Tropiques, among others. He has written a new piece especially for us: Music for bows and percussion.

Ignacio is also not unknown here, and he’s written also a new piece for us, as yet untitled, which is for organ, guitar, cello and percussion.

Jan Feddersen has also written a new piece called Slides for three electric guitars.

Robert Engelbrecht has no new piece, but we will probably play Nellys Boudoir for piano, three electric guitars, percussion and tape.

Come and listen.
