Classictronica

At mouvement nouveau, we have to admit: They were there first. 2004 saw the first installment of the CTRL+ALT+REPEAT, a festival featuring Classical music and experimental electronics. A combination, which might seem odd at first, but makes absolute sense if you think of the influence composers such as Glass, Riley and Reich have had on a whole new generation. This Friday, the 22nd of July, the series will go into round two. And the lineup, again, is absolutely mouthwatering. Robotics, designed by collaborative project Redux, will perform Terry Riley's "In C", Kadet Kuhne will treat the audience to one of her brilliant laptop sets, RS 232 will move from statics to a bright C major chord and Glenn Bach will bring together various field recordings. The two worlds of Classical and Experimental Music will come together in the concert of organisors mem1, a project between cellist lrtm and laptop artist mk villeret. Because both parties interact with each other, the result is not a hybrid, but rather a single, entirely new instrument with a very subtle and dreamy timbre.

This all will take place at "Il Coral" in Los Angeles at 9PM until midnight. There's no fixed entrance fee, but you are asked to make a 5$ donation.
