DieOrdnungDerDinge play Guggenheim Bilbao – 17th November 2016


DieOrdnungDerDinge will be playing “If you know what I mean” at the Guggenheim in Bilbao on the 17th November 2016.

What does Bruckner’s 7th Symphony look like when transmitted through the facial expressions of a listener? Can the movements of a musician be translated into light? In “If you know what I mean” the ensemble DieOrdnungDerDinge explores ways of translating music into different media and forms. Visualizing sounds, acoustically interpreting images… In the pieces presented, these seemingly straightforward transpositions yield new, unexpected results, raising the question of whether translation is actually possible at all, and unveiling the unmistakeable role that our own expectations and experiences play in the process of perception.

The programme:

Irene Galindo-Quero, Ein Augenblick (2009), based on a video by Telemach Wiesinger
Simon Steen-Andersen, Next to beside besides (2004-2007), Versions for cello, violin and snare drum
Ana María Rodríguez, Les miroirs, (UA) for violin, cello and video
Carolyn Chen, Adagio (2009), for four performers with headphones, listening to a fragment of Bruckner’s 7th Symphony
Iñigo Giner-Miranda, enlightened (2013), for a string instrumentalist wearing LED lights
Cathy van Eck, 412 Meter laufen (UA), for four walking performers
