Karlheinz Stockhausen Signale zur Invasion & Oktophonie

In this expansive audio-visual collaboration, Thomas Moore and Klaas Verpoest create a maximalist tribute to the work of Karlheinz Stockhausen. It is a chance to hear two of the German composer’s pieces, albeit simultaneously: Signale zur Invasion and Oktophonie come from Stockhausen’s Deinstag aus Licht, a ‘modular opera’ from the larger song cycle Licht, in which separate pieces can interact with one another as segments or layers. In this concert, filmmaker Klaas Verpoest provides grand, moving shapes that consume the figure of trombonist Thomas Moore, who walks into the audience while playing, emphasising the nonlinear space sound occupies.

Produced by hcmf// co-produced by Muziekcentrum De Bijloke, Ghent and Centre Henri Pousseur

This event will finish at approximately 10:15pm.
