Musicians in Vancouver: are you interested in the periodic oscillations of the universe and telepathic communication with others in a chamber music setting? If the answer is yes, you might want to take part in a workshop and performance of Karlheinz Stockhausen's Ylem offered through Vacouver New Music in early February. From the VNMS press release:
"Theory of the oscillating universe: every 80 000 000 000 years the universe explodes, unfolds, and draws together again. The word YLEM is used by some people to designate the periodic explosion, by others to designate the essential material.” – Karlheinz Stockhausen
Vancouver New Music is seeking people interested in taking part in a community ensemble that will workshop and perform Karlheinz Stockhausen’s Ylem. Musicians of all experience levels, as well as non-musicians are welcome.
The workshop and performance will be led by Giorgio Magnanensi, and will be held the February 6th from 5-7pm at Vancouver Community College. The final performance will be held at The Cultch’s Vancity Culture Lab (1895 Venables Street) on Sunday, February 15, 2009 at 4pm.
If you are interested in being part of this event please contact Giorgio Magnanensi at giorgio [at] newmusic dot org.
