hcmf// 2018 Programme
hcmf// 2018: Friday 16 – Sunday 25 November 2018
Surging confidently into its fifth decade, the hcmf// 2018 programme comprises of over 50 live events featuring 15 world premieres and 70 UK premieres, including new works by James Dillon, Christoper Fox, Rebecca Saunders and Hilda Paredes, and new versions of classic works by Karlheinz Stockhausen and Julius Eastman.
Internationally recognised Swiss-American visual artist and composer Christian Marclay marks a bold first for hcmf// as Composer in Residence. His programme explores the fusion of fine art and audio cultures, transforming sounds and music into a visible, physical form through performance, collage, sculpture, installation, photography and video. His programme also includes the world premiere of Investigations, a new work for 20 pianos.
The international line-up of the 2018 programme includes inimitable Ensemble Musikfabrik, Gothenberg-based group Mimitabu, compelling American pianist Sarah Cahill, and Dutch ‘chamber metal’ band TEMKO; as well as the latest new works from Jessie Marino, Salvatore Sciarrino, and Malin Bång.
