    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 was born in 1977 in Chişinău in the Republic of Moldova into a musical family – her mother is also a violinist and her father plays cimbalom. In 1989 the family emigrated to Vienna, where Kopatchinskaja began her studies at the Music Academy at the age of 13; she transferred four years later to the Academy of the Arts in Bern, completing her education there with Igor Ozim. She became known in professional circles through her victory at the International Szeryng Competition (2000) and won the Credit Suisse Young Artist Award in 2002. Today Kopatchinskaja works with leading orchestras and attracts attention through her unusual, often radical performances. Equally at home in early music, the Romantic repertoire, and contemporary fare, she is also an animated chamber musician and designs staged concerts. As LUCERNE FESTIVAL’s “artiste étoile” in 2017, she was able to showcase this wide spectrum. In the 2018-19 season, Kopatchinskaja appeared under Kirill Petrenko with the Bavarian Staatsoper Orchestra as well as the Berlin Philharmonic. She made her debut with the Cleveland Orchestra with Peter Eötvös’s violin concerto Seven, played the Tchaikovsky Concerto on a tour with Teodor Currentzis to Japan, and concertized with the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal under Kent Nagano. She also joined with musicians from the Berlin Philharmonic to sing and play as the narrator in Schoenberg’s Pierrot lunaire. Among the awards that Kopatchinskaja’s recordings have garnered are the International Classical Music Award, the Prix Caecilia, and Gramophone magazine’s Recording of the Year Award. Her album Death and the Maiden, which includes works from Dowland to Kurtág, won a Grammy Award in 2018. Her most recent release, with the pianist Polina Leschenko, is of sonatas by Bartók and Poulenc.

    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.
