Concerts at Maschinenhaus / Improvisation & Sound Art

Zeena Parkins, Ikue Mori

The concerts at Maschinenhaus will get off to a powerful start with two New York-based improvisationalists: Zeena Parkins, who collaborates with musicians such as Björk and Fred Frith, in unusual ways discovers new sonic possibilities of the (electric) harp, meets Ikue Mori (electronics), a pioneer of experimental approaches to drum computers and laptops.

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
