Lucerne Festival Forward plays not only in the KKL Luzern but throughout the city. The Festival begins in the planetarium at the Swiss Museum of Transport and, for this Late Night event, explores the sonic possibilities of the Neubad, a former public swimming pool. Musicians of the Lucerne Festival Contemporary Orchestra (LFCO) will transform the building into a spatial score, into a sequence of musical events, and even into an instrument. The journey leads through the entire Neubad to the central pool. Precisely notated scores, open playing instructions, and group improvisation guided by interactions with the audience will converge, linked by the “white noise” of everyday sounds, to create an expressive sonic journey towards silence.
