Neujahrskonzert mit dem Konzerthausorchester Berlin
In 2021, our concert hall will have been standing on Gendarmenmarkt for two full centuries – the perfect reason to celebrate with an interactive commissioned work. The aim here is an interactive installation that explores design possibilities along the interfaces of new music, visual art, virtual reality and augmented reality. The jury has reached a decision: Mark Barden (composition) and Julian Bonequi (visual design).
Mark Barden’s compositions are complex and original. He has received numerous awards, collaborated with Ensemble Mosaik, Klangforum Wien and ensemble intercontemporain and his works have been performed at the Donaueschingen Music Festival and Ultraschall Berlin, among others. The visual artist Julian Bonequi brings a creative visual vocabulary, wide-ranging experience in the field of digital art and a deep affinity for music. Several of his virtual reality and augmented reality works have already received prestigious awards.
Development and programming work on the visual worlds will begin by the end of 2019, and sound recordings with members of the Konzerthausorchester Berlin will take place in early 2020. The outcome will be presented to the public in May 2020.
The project is being created in close collaboration with APOLLO members of the HTW Berlin University of Applied Sciences and supported by “experimente#digital” – a cultural initiative of the Aventis Foundation.
