musikprotokoll 2010

Sometimes they are to be envied, visual artists, whose imagination seems to know practically no bounds thanks to their free access to all available materials and media. The situation is generally quite different for composers: if they actually want their work to be performed, they must bow to so many authorities that the ultimate outcome can only be what was certain to begin with: concerts halls with their fixed arrangement of sound and audience, interpreters whose skill conforms to the necessary standards, a set of instruments with a given genre history, notation and virtuosity, to name but a few. The young composers at “Klangwege 2010” – led and spurred on by Peter Ablinger – set out to escape these constraints, venturing out of the predefined situations and thus taking a look at what really goes into making a concert: conceptual, installational and concert pieces focus on the physical presence of the interpreters, the often neglected visual side of a performance, the societal act of the concert form and audience expectations.
