Danish composer Simon Steen-Andersen and Norwegian percussion sensation Håkon Stene joined Aventa and Ear Heart Music for the North American premiere of Simon’s "Black Box Music". Here are a few short excerpts from the February 28th performance at Brooklyn’s Roulette, "Black Box Music" could be said to be a deconstruction of conducting and puppet theater as well as an exploration and exploitation of the audio/visual relations inherent in conducting and staging.
If you have a chance to check this work out live, don't miss it! Upcoming performances are scheduled for ensembles in England (London Sinfonietta), Norway, Denmark, Paris and Germany. Check out Simon's page at simonsteenandersen.dk/eng_aktuelt.htm
