Last Christmas, a new telescope was sent into space and is now wandering in the dark and mysterious galaxy - is this how we, as artists, feel when we go deep into our consciousness in search of what makes us feel alive?
On this multi-sensory journey, we navigate the dilemmas of politics, sickening racial attacks, and the widening gap between the ‘successful’ and ‘starving’ artist figure, moving with and through the audience.
Together they look at what creative exchange and artist alliance means in a world where the arts are under threat, and how to project a healthier future in the post-pandemic world.
This dynamic promenade piece will merge dance with soundscapes & projections, transporting you to a place of calm that strives to build connections through art.
Virtual Jazzexchange: KRY meets
Angela Wai Nok Hui & James Larter
Join us for this virtual jazz collaboration between the newly formed Austrian Trio KRY with London based Percussion Duo Angela Wai Nok Hui and James Larter. Each band will present a short set of their own repertoire, but also an exclusive rework of one of each others songs from a new musical perspective.
In the first part of the video, you can experience Angela Wai Nok Hui & James Larter, interpreting their counterpart’s piece “Kry2” to percussion, as well as two of their favourite poems into music, exploring unusual sounds on an array of percussion instruments.
In the second section, explore KRY remixing an exclusive James Larter composition, followed by showcasing their song “Freiheit#2”, an original piece by the Austrian trio.
Watch this creative performance celebrating cultural exchange and cross-border composition!

A strange disease starts to spread in the city: a hole growing at people’s backs. The hole is circular, dark, appears to be a bottomless pit. One tries to reach into the hole of another, reaching so far that the whole arm is engulfed by the emptiness of the hole. "
I feel nothing." Both said.

The project is inspired by the visual language within musical notations of the piece Mani Gonxha by Pierluigi Billone, where gestures, volume and speed of movement are all precisely indicated in the form of specifically designed signs and labels; one evening the two friends started discussing the translation that has taken place. How does the language within these graphic notations differ from traditional key signatures and scales, how does a classically trained musician receive these abstract graphic diagrams as precise instructions? Other than instructions that are received and performed, what is the scope of this abstract field that is now left for a musician to interpret? Through discussions about the piece as well as its unspecificity and areas of discrepancy that Hui utilises as a performer, Yi interprets the flavour of Mani Gonxha’s graphic language intended for sound, and translates it into an image-based version of the performance, at the same time utilising the existing visual motifs that would physically unravel as the piece goes on. Through making imagery that is static and moving, Yi explores the emotions in shapes, painted gestures and movement, as well as the mutually translatable language that allows for manifestations as sound and movements.
