T(ables) a(re) T(urned) is the new work by austrian composer Bernhard Lang written for my ensemble AlterEgo and the english turntablist Philip Jeck
We premiered this huge 70 minutes long work in Berlin at the Maerz musik festival last march..we had the pleausure to play in the great ,legendary Philarmonie..
now we’re back on the road with TaT and we present it in Holland tomorrow (November music festival in DenBosch), in Wien (Wien Modern festival on nov 14) and Huddersfield on nov 20.
Highly virtuositic ensemble writing ( no conductor!) and very cool interactions with the low-fi nostalgic sounds produced by Philip , TaT is a monument to the art of looping and it has a kind of cool, jazzy , “neon light” patterns that i really find fascinating…
