Composition Commission issued to Vykintas Baltakas

projektgruppe neue musik Bremen, Germany

Can a loudspeaker play an instrument? What is the difference between musicians and speakers? How can musicians and loudspeakers complement one another?

LENdscapes brings this contradictory musical formation together when the loudspeaker orchestra BLO of the projektgruppe neue musik bremen meets the Lithuanian LENsemble. The theme in focus here is the issue of interchangeability of real musicians and loudspeakers, who make music as virtual musicians together with the real musicians dotted around the space (Landscapes). The audience is also asked to make music with them. The project will include the premiere of a new composition by Vykintas Baltakas, made possible by the Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation.

Due to the current situation and the associated requirements, there may be changes at short notice. For the latest information on the project please therefore check
