What happens, when music is translated into music?
The festival LABOR SONOR : TRANSLATING MUSIC commissioned nine compositions: artists belonging to varying genres and scenes were invited to translate the music of artists, respectively of other genres and scenes, into their own music. An experimental arrangement in nine variations.
Musicians who work in the field of new music, contemporary electronic music and intermedial music formats translate works from protagonists of Berlin’s Echtzeitmusik into their own musical praxis. Composer-Performers of Echtzeitmusik translate compositions from minimal techno, avantgarde pop, and new music. This results in re-compositions, transferences, reinterpretations and transformations crossing borders.
