Shanghai New Music Week 2014

Vi har svært ved at få armene ned ovenpå en fantastisk tur til Shanghai, Kina i oktober, hvor SCENATET fremførte tre koncerter på en af Kinas vigtigste festivaler for ny musik, Shanghai New Music Week. Knap var ensemblet hjemvendt fra Kina, før de skulle deltage på årets Wundergrund, hvor de var inviteret til at åbne festivalen med en portrætkoncert af den irske komponist og performer Jennifer Walshe.

I oktober rejste SCENATET til Shanghai som en del af Kulturstyrelsens kultursatsning i Kina, hvor de var inviteret til at spille tre koncerter på Shanghai New Music Week. Koncerterne talte værker af den græske komponist Georges Aperghis og den danske komponist Bent Sørensen samt vindende værker fra årets store, internationale kompositionskonkurrence. Læs mere om turen her.

Samme måned var SCENATET inviteret til at åbne dette års Wundergrund festival med en portrætkoncert af den irske komponist og performer Jennifer Walshe, som er en af de førende komponister inden for sit felt i Europa lige nu. Åbningskoncerten fik fine ord med på vejen og fire stjerner i Politiken: ”Åbningen i år bød på fire performanceværker. De første tre af den irske komponist Jennifer Walshe, der sammen med det aarhusianske ensemble SCENATET leverede overdådige musikteaterstykker af lyd, video og skuespil med alle mulige komponenter.

Om lidt er der juleferie, men SCENATET vender stærkt tilbage i det nye år allerede med en del koncerter på programmet. Den første i rækken er en portrætkoncert af Juliana Hodkinson i Graz, Østrig i januar, hvor SCENATET bl.a. vil opføre en række af Hodkinsons værker sammen med musikere fra ensemblet SCHALLFELD (AT).
I marts 2015 skal SCENATET fremføre ikke mindre end tre koncerter, hvoraf den første er åbningskoncerten på PULSAR festivalen i København, som er Det Kongelige Danske Musikkonservatoriums festival for ny musik. En uge efter befinder ensemblet sig i Bergen, Norge, hvor de skal fremføre en portrætkoncert af den danske komponist Christian Winther Christensen på Borealis festivalen. SCENATET runder marts måned af med en koncert med den amerikanske kunstnerduo Object Collection i Brooklyn, New York. Læs mere om de kommende koncerter nedenfor.

Object Collection og SCENATET i NYC

SCENATET runder marts måned af med en tur til Brooklyn, New York hvor ensemblet, sammen med udvalgte kunstnere fra New Yorks kunstscene, opfører værket NEW YORK GIRLS 2: Space Control af og med kunstnerduoen Object Collection. Der er tale om en ny udgave af det oprindelige værk NEW YORK GIRLS, der er en øvelse i ekstremerne og en performance for objekter, stemmer, instrumenter og video. Værket havde Danmarkspremiere på SPOR festival 2014, som samtidig markerede begyndelsen på et samarbejde mellem SCENATET og Object Collection. Koncerten finder sted d. 22. marts på Roulette i Brooklyn, New York.

Det er SCENATETs første tur over Atlanten og hvilken bedre måde at tage hul på dette nye kapitel end at spille på Roulette, et epicenter for Brooklyns kunstneriske scene. Roulette indtager en unik position i New Yorks kulturlandskab som en af de mest kreative og produktive centre for eksperimenterende kunst i USA. Læs mere om koncerten her.
