After two sold out shows in Berlin, Maryanne Amacher’s GLIA is coming to Bergen / Åsane Kulturhus, 18 March 20:00–21:00
Here is what you can expect:
You enter a dark room. Seven acoustic musicians are sitting on a pyramid of low platforms. The acoustic musicians begin to play alone, but are soon joined by electronically generated sounds broadcast from speakers scattered around the room. You can walk around and experience different sound zones, lay down in your favourite zone, or sit on a chair at the edges of the room to get the experience more at a distance. Twice in the piece, four of the live musicians walk around in the audience. The piece starts quietly and ends quietly, but in the middle you will experience different intense frequencies as well as volumes.
