7–14 February 2019
BRUNHILD FERRARI WITH CAFE OTO, CLOSE-UP CINEMA, PRESQUE RIEN, MAISON ONA AND ECSTATIC PEACE LIBRARY are proud to present Luc Ferrari's original compositions – interpreted by contemporary composers for an 8-day program of live concerts, talks, films, readings, installations, exhibitions and the launch of the English translations of his Complete Works.
Affiliated with French Radio’s Groupe de Musique de Concrète in 1958, Luc Ferrari (1929-2005) broke away to pave his own path of individualistic expressions of minimalist music, audio plays, musical theatre, soundtracks and installations. His groundbreaking works such as Presque Rien (1967-70) rebelled against the rigid institutions of his day and scandalized the French musical establishment. In 1982 Ferrari opened the electro acoustic studio La Muse en Circuit where he continued to compose unique award-winning soundscapes, absorbing such disparate influences as serialism and musique concrète. Luc Ferrari’s works resisted categorization during his lifetime and they continue to surprise, inspire and challenge new generations of artists.
