Malin Bång Kudzu

An ensemble of extremes, the Curious Chamber Players continue to knock on every possible door still to be opened, playing anything from chance music and modernism to works by the young composers of our time. At hcmf// 2018, they present Kudzu, a scathing new work by composer Malin Bång. A conceptual sequel to Siku, performed at hcmf// 2017, Kudzu critiques the political and economic causes of our planet’s ecological collapse, delivering the apocalypse genre the protest song it deserves. Prepared for an ensemble with a trail of found-object instruments, the piece is typical of Bång, whose themes of time and environment gain physical representation. Not just conscious of the environment, Bång’s music is a part of it.

Commissioned by Deutschlandfunk, supported by the Swedish Arts Council

Produced by hcmf// supported by STIM’s Council for the Promotion of Swedish Music, Export Music Sweden, Kultur i Väst & Musik i Syd
