6 - 10 September 2017 From classical crossover and minimal soundscapes to modern composition with (live) electronics. Gaudeamus Muziekweek presents the newest music by young music pioneers during the eponymous and highly renowned music festival in Utrecht, the Netherlands.
NOOM is an amateur ensemble, recently set up by Insomnio. On the last afternoon of the festival they play a free concert in the Festival Hub. IN SYNC was written by one of the young heroines of the German contemporary music scene, Brigitta Muntendorf, who entered the public eye with music-theatrical works and an extensive use of mixed media. IN SYNC will give NOOM ample opportunity to show its mettle; the work requires an exact synchronization of the physical movements of the musicians. As the strings bow from left to right they should in sync with the percussionists on either side and with the slide of the trombonist as it moves backwards and forwards. Meanwhile, the bassoonists step sideways and the trumpet players mute their instruments with choreographed hand movements. Regardless of the visual synchronisation the resulting sound is blurred as the composition explores the device, “the same, but different”
