This SWITZERLAND à ß ASIA collaboration aims to motivate composers and musicians from such distant countries and diverse cultures such as Korea, or China and Switzerland to a dynamic exchange of their differing contemporary artistic practices and realities. Such an exchange is a challenge and prompts the artist to take a conscious position within his or her culture and society. We hope that this experience inspires and provokes a lively discourse on contemporary artistic production and music making between the various cultures at play.
The musical collaboration among Keller, Gloor with the composers Chung, Rosenberger and Weber has experienced a promising start at the Festival Weimarer Frühlingstage in April 2009 and at a concert soirée featuring a reading by Swiss writer Peter Stamm at the ignm (International Society for Contemporary Music) concert series at the Kunstraum Walcheturm, Zürich, on April 24, 2009.
This concert is part of a three concert series in Hong Kong and Macau. The collaboration with the Hong Kong New Music Ensemble marks the core of this Asian tour, as these concerts feature a close encounter on stage of Hong Kong and Swiss musicians performing as one group John Cage’s Variations VI.
