Tectonics Athens 2019 | 07-09/06/2019 | SGT
WITH REFERENCES TO FLUXUS, JOHN CAGE AND NO WAVE, TECTONICS ATHENS 2019 TRACES AVANT-GARDE MUSICAL PRACTICE AND EXPLORES THEIR IMPACT ON THE 21ST CENTURY. IMPROVISATION, SOUND ART, TRADITIONAL SOUNDS, AND ELECTRONIC NOISE COLLIDE AND COMBINE, AROUND THE CENTRAL CORE OF THE “HERE AND NOW” OF LIVE MUSIC.
Radical conductor Ilan Volkov brings this festival to Athens for the second time, which aims to redefine the role of the Symphonic Orchestra in the 21st century while bringing together various ways of making music. Improvisation, contemporary composition, sound art, traditional music, electronic noise, and song all meet, collide, and complement one another in a three-day festival of tectonic pressures.
Devoted to discovering and revealing valuable works and composers of yesterday and today, Ilan Volkov proposes an interpretation of music that crosses genres, epochs, and geography. Maintaining a constant reference to avant-garde movements and trends of the previous century, such as Fluxus from the 1960s and ’70s, the indeterminacy and randomness of John Cage, site-specific works, electroacoustic composition and no wave music, the second Athens version of Tectonics explores the meaning of “here and now” in live musical art.
