Shiva Feshareki: Opus Infinity für Turntables und Ensemble (2020)
Shiva Feshareki (Turntables)
duration: appr. 45 min / without interval
The turntable virtuoso and composer Shiva Feshareki from London is considered one of the most interesting current discoveries in the fields of contemporary music and electronic club music. For Ensemble Modern, she is writing a new work for turntables, ensemble and loudspeakers, which Feshareki is arranging at Frankfurt’s LAB according to a painstaking geometrical plan. The audience will take their seats within this spatial arrangement based on mathematical patterns, thereby becoming part of an immersive performance in which the composer manipulates her turntables live, intensifying and alienating allusions to electronic club music. Together with the instrumentalists, she creates a dynamic sound sculpture which fills the entire space.
