Performer: Jochen Fassbender (multi-instrumentalist, Germany)
Programme: Knock on the sky and listen to the sound! − musical improvisation on the sound objects made of glass, stone and metal
The sound oriented concert presents German multi-instrumentalist Jochen Fassbender who has been interested in the phenomenon of sound through all of his life. From the childhood he has been experimenting with everything that makes sound, building and developing innovative musical instruments and sound objects. He has been working as a sound artist since 1989 and still actively gives concerts, seminars and lectures at the university. His mission is to teach how to listen consciously in the world that is increasingly getting louder. Fassbender has said that the sound has a central meaning in a contemporary world − Bach’s compositions are played by different instruments, jazz singers sing organ scores and Branderburg concertos are performed on a synthesizer.
In this concert he invites the listeners to meditate on a kōan of Zen Buddhism: “Knock on the sky and listen to the sound!”
