VIDEO: Shanghai, Electronic Music Week 2013


___Description: ___

Listen up! There's more to the city than noise pollution. This concert from Christof Schläger and Marjon Smit is a special concept for Shanghai. It is a special set up with 64 horns installed in the middle of a great square. The horns are directing to the four winds, playing with the reverberations of the surrounding buildings, changing them to a sounding sky scraper cathedral. This reverberations materialize also the impression of several "virtual" instruments, you have the feeling of a spread out orchestra in the city. The hearers can walk during the concert, came closer or move away, exploring that very important spatial element of the reverberation composition. The melodies and rhythms reflecting off the architectural surface, playing compositions with incredibly energetic rhythmical structures, producing an attractive firework of aural textures - the "Magic Square".
