SCENATET performed the debut concert of composer Marta Sniady at KLANG Copenhagen Avantgarde Music Festival June 9 and at Musikhuset Aarhus June 16.

Progressive digitization has completely changed the way we live and think. Thanks to the ubiquitous Internet maintaining contacts, building communities and opening borders is extremely easy. On the other hand, we have never been so lonely before, isolated, living life of others on the screen like our own. Do we really live? Are we deciding for ourselves or are we controlled by the media? Do we satisfy the need for closeness, love and devotion, or are we deceiving ourselves? Do we love or only advertise? Are we present enough, or are we just an archive of likes and clicks? Four pieces are representing four goals to achieve happiness in life.
