URBAN STRING: SCANNERS
Anders Hören with Ensemble Resonanz and Dea
In its own venue Resonanzraum in the heart of Hamburg’s famous district St. Pauli, Ensemble Resonanz is making different musical ends meet in their concert series urban string on a monthly basis. Now, urban string is touring to Southeast Asia for the first time introducing the audience to a vibrant mix of classical and electronic sound. Every urban string night is different. Each concert of the series is based on a carefully selected live program that draws parallels between music from the 17th, 18th century and very contemporary compositions. These parallels may not exist on paper but are coming across in the stories told by the musicians of the ensemble, who are hosting the concert themselves, engaging in a dialogue with the audience and introducing the pieces they play. But the program not only brings together old and new, but also classical and electronic music. Each concert of the Southeast Asia tour urban string showcases a local guest DJ who adds up to the story. Not a service DJ who will play “lounge music”, but a music archaeologists who contributes a unique and local character to the evening.
In Jakarta Dea will be joining the Ensemble Resonanz for the concert, adding to the concert his very unique flavor of ‘70s disco music and psychedelic rock.
