Festival Dag in de Branding

The combination of music and technology yields endless new artistic possibilities. This edition of Festival Dag in de Branding sees an encounter of two worlds: the centuries-old tradition with its familiar acoustic instruments, versus the modern age with its ever-changing technology.

You will be introduced to a brand-new electronic instrument (Jan-Bas Bollen’s HyperTheremin), hacked household appliances (Hugo Morales), ‘traditional’ sound recordings (Jimena Maldonado) and four electro-acoustic ensemble pieces (Ensemble Resilience) – in an ever-varying interplay with the conventional sound world of strings, wind instruments and percussion.

‘It has become impossible to imagine our lives without technology – or even our music, where electronically created sounds are the latest additions to broaden the palette. This edition shows the different ways in which today’s composers are able to utilise them: to raise current issues, to make a connection between tradition and the present, and also to take a look at the future.’
