A concert that serves cake – ja, sicher, ein Kuchenkonzert

New York’s ICE ensemble are in Berlin this week. They want people to bring new pieces they can play and cakes they can share around.

Here’s what they are telling us:

Es freut mich, Sie zu meinem  ”Berlin-Debut” einzuladen. Das International Contemporary Ensemble aus New York wird von Claire Chase geleitet, der in diesem Jahr für ihre geniale Arbeit als “Arts Entrepreneur” ein MacArthur Fellowship verliehen wurde.
Die Veranstaltung läuft Tag und Nacht über drei Tage –  was wann gespielt wird, ist nicht festgelegt.  
Er werden auch Überraschungsgäste auftreten. 
Der Eintritt ist natürlich frei. 

Eröffnung am 29. November um 18 Uhr in der Galerie KROME, Potsdamer Strasse 98 in Berlin. 

Laura Berman_Next, SOUNDFAIR und KROME Gallery präsentieren
ICE and Guests / Bo Christian Larsson 

Jeweils von ca. 12 Uhr bis (mindestens) 0 Uhr

Bring yourself. Bring food. Bring a piece (may be we will play it)”. 
Featuring the New Yorker Ensemble ICE in their first Berlin appearance, CONCERT is a deconstruction of a musical performance,
which raises questions about the accepted conventions and rules related to this form of event. In this case the various steps 
in the process of creating a concert – from the selection of the work and the rehearsals, to the actual performance and moments in between, will be audible and visible as one event spanning three days. Swedish artist Bo Christian Larsson has created an installation especially for CONCERT that further blurs the usual boundaries between onstage and off, between the audience and the artists. ICE, one of America’s foremost ensembles, will perform works by major composers such as Steve Reich, John Cage and Alvin Lucier as well new work developed with young composers as part of their ICE Lab. Musicians and composers are encouraged to bring music and/or an instrument or perhaps some refreshments to share in the breaks and thereby be part of creating new work in this one-off event at Gallery KROME.
