    Delokation – Live-Remix

    What is a “Strotter”? In Viennese dialect, this concept refers to someone who searches for leftover scraps, someone who forages in the trash for useful stuff. Which is precisely what the sound artist Christoph Hess does: going by the alias Strotter Inst., he is this year’s winner of the “Soundzz.z.zzz…z” Competition, in which LUCERNE FESTIVAL and the Kunstmuseum Luzern every summer choose a winning contestant whose project explores the intersection between music and the visual arts. Strotter Inst. uses prepared turntables and a wide variety of sound samples to create works that involve not only music but that are themselves visual objects as well.

    For Delokation Strotter Inst. will interact with three works from the Festival programming, submitting them to a remixing process. What is preserved from the identity of the original? And how much autonomy does a new work acquire when it has been generated completely from already pre-existing material? Delokation will be experienced in three  “states of matter” during the Summer Festival: in the Kunstmuseum, Strotter Inst. will present the remixes supplemented by a film collage, via projections on a screen, and fragmented into parts in several sound installations. At LUCERNE FESTIVAL he will perform Delokation as a live remix, as well as in two performances with “artiste étoile” Patricia Kopatchinskaja and the harpsichordist  Anthony Romaniuk and with the turntable artist Jorge Sánchez-Chiong.

    Patricia Kopatchinskaja

    The violinist Patricia Kopatchinskaja is Lucerne’s 2017 Summer Festival “artiste étoile.” Born in 1977 in Chişinău in the Republic of Moldova, she comes from a musical family – her mother also plays violin and her father performs on the cimbalom. In 1989 the family emigrated to Vienna, where the 17-year-old Kopatchinskaja began her studies at the Music University; four years later she transferred to the University of the Arts in Bern, where she completed her studies with Igor Ozim. She became known in professional circles through her victory at the International Szeryng Competition (2000), and in 2002 she won the Credit Suisse Young Artist Award. Today Patricia Kopatchinskaja works with leading orchestras and generates a buzz through her unusual, often radical performances. Equally at home in early music, the Romantic repertoire, and modern music, she is also an animated chamber musician and creates staged concerts. In the 2016-17 season she served as artist-in-residence at the Konzerthaus in Berlin and at London’s Wigmore Hall. She performed Ligeti’s Violin Concerto with the Filarmonica della Scala, the Berlin Philharmonic, and the Helsinki Philharmonic and Prokofiev’s Second with the London Philharmonic; together with the Russian ensemble musicAeterna and Teodor Currentzis, she toured Europa, playing Berg and Mozart. In 2018 she will take on the role of  Music Director of the Ojai Festival in California. Kopatchinskaja’s recordings have won the Echo Klassik Award (2009 and 2013), the International Classical Music Award, the Prix Caecilia, and Gramophone magazine’s Recording of the Year Award. Her most recent releases include the violin concertos of Schumann (conducted by Heinz Holliger) and Tchaikovsky (with Currentzis) as well as the album Death and the Maiden, featuring works by composers from Dowland to Kurtág.

    LUCERNE FESTIVAL debut on 7 September 2002 playing the Sibelius Concerto with the Vienna Philharmonic under Mariss Jansons.

    Jorge Sánchez-Chiong

    Jorge Sánchez-Chiong, der 1969 in Caracas (Venezuela) geboren wurde, studierte Komposition bei Francis Burt und Michael Jarrell an der Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst in Wien, wo er heute als freischaffender Künstler lebt. Er ist Mitglied im NewTonEnsemble und Mitbegründer der Komponistengruppe «Gegenklang». In seinem kompositorischen Schaffen setzt Jorge Sánchez-Chiong, der auch als Turntablist auftritt, bei der Lebendigkeit und Spontaneität der Improvisation an. Einen Schwerpunkt seiner Arbeit bilden interdisziplinäre Projekte, die den Brückenschlag zum experimentellen Theater und zum Tanz, zur Videokunst zur elektronischen Musik wagen. Dabei arbeitet er mit Künstlern wie Joke Lanz, Christian Weber oder Michaela Grill zusammen. Diese stilistische Offenheit schlägt sich in seinem Œuvre nieder, das Solo-, Ensemble- und Orchesterwerke ebenso umfasst wie elektronische Musik, intermediale Projekte und Improvisationsvorlagen.
