SCENATET: Wow and Flutter

Tuesday, April 25th, 2017


Denmark’s buzzy SCENATET makes its official New York debut with a potent program that belies the cozy Danish stereotype of ‘Hygge.’ Along with the twitchy improvised grooves of Yu Oda and the strobe-funk theatrics of Kaj Duncan David’s Computer Music, highlights include the first of this year’s MATA commissions, a world premiere by Eric Wubbels. Also on tap: the hermetic canons of Daniel Tacke’s musica ricercata | musica poetica, Turkish composer Murat Çolak’s Orchid, an octet by rising Danish star Christian Winther Christensen, and German composer Martin Grütter’s Messer Engle Atem Kling (Cleaver Angel Breathing ‘Ding’).

with support from the Danish Composers´ Society´s Production Pool/KODA´s Cultural Funds.

Kaj Duncan David

Friday, March 3rd, 2017


Kaj Duncan David makes music with computers, electronics, instruments, lights and video. He moves freely between multimedia instrumental composition and installation through music theatre via experimental techno, working with reduced materials, repetition and minimalistic forms. Common to almost all of his output is a focus on creating connections between what is heard and what is seen, often through the use of light as a totally integrated musical voice. His work is regularly presented at festivals and venues internationally. He studied in London (Goldsmiths), Aarhus (with Simon Steen-Andersen) and Dresden (with Manos Tsangaris and Franz-Martin Olbrisch). He lives in Berlin. More at: www.kajduncandavid.com
