Between Nostalgia and Anticipation New Series of Sound Performances, starting October 2023
Eerie atmospheres and flickering sound traces created by past audio sources and the coming times – for each event of the new series Sonic Specters. Between Nostalgia and Anticipation two musicians track down what has ceased to exist and what is yet to come. Oscillating between melancholic nostalgia and euphoric anticipation, linear concepts of time and space will be called into question. Does the past haunt the present and the future?
