Monica Germino viool | Floriaan Ganzevoort licht en mise-en-espace
Andriessen, Lang, Wolfe en Gordon MUTED
ROAM passe-partout € 50 available at de Doelen box office or via firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Dutch-American violinist Monica Germino commissioned this magical piece from not one but four composers: David Lang, Michael Gordon, Julia Wolfe and Louis Andriessen. The resulting performance, which aimed to explore the extremes of audibility, is a meditation for ‘whisper violin’ and an unusually intimate performance. Performing for a maximum of 40 listeners at a time, MUTED confronts us with notions of silence and the ‘art of listening’.
Germino’s use of sung texts from the famous New York Archie and Mehitabel cartoon series ensures a lighter side to this intriguing piece.
MUTED is a Doelen production, already performed to acclaim in New York, Vancouver, Huddersfield, ’s-Hertogenbosch and the Oranjewoud Festival. And now as part of ROAM!
