Jahrhunderthalle Frankfurt

Samy Deluxe (Rap), Carolina Eyck (Theremin), hr-Sinfonieorchester, Steven Sloane (conductor)

Encounters between different musical worlds are the hallmark of the »Music Discovery Project« of the Frankfurt Radio Symphony. Here, the focus is on unusual contrasts and mixtures of classical and pop, orchestra and electronics. In keeping with the festival theme HUMAN__MACHINE, the opening night of the cresc... Biennial for Current Music juxtaposes the spherical sounds of the Theremin – one of the earliest electronical musical instruments – with the rhythmic forces of rap and rich orchestral colours. Featured guests include the Theremin virtuoso Carolina Eyck, who coaxes ghostlike sound patterns from this precursor of the synthesizer, which was developed in 1920 and does not require direct touch, and the German rap legend Samy Deluxe. Together with the Frankfurt Radio Symphony, they guarantee a gripping »machine work« full of groovy energy, vocal acrobatics and pulsing beats.
