Concerts at Maschinenhaus / Improvisation & Sound Art

Christine Abdelnour, Pascal Battus

The Lebanese-French duo goes on an improvisational journey of discovery in the world of unheard sounds and spaces. Abdelnour understands sound as a sculptural material, shapeable and rich in concrete textures. Battus uses small motors from an old Walkman to make paper, metal, or Styrofoam vibrate.

At this year’s Ruhrtriennale, Monday evenings are dedicated to concerts held at Essen’s Maschinenhaus, Zeche Carl, with four evenings of classical chamber music and two evenings of improvisation where the audience can participate up close in the process of music’s emergence and creation. The balance of acoustics in this precious industrial space promotes an open exchange between musicians and listeners
