60th International Festival of Contemporary Music

Dal 07/10/2016 al 16/10/2016
Chamber music, great ensembles, jam sessions, live-sets, video and film in concert, in a vision of the contemporary that in the name of experimentation embraces electronics, jazz, folk, cultured and popular music all together: this is music in its many possible forms, a far-reaching sound spectrum in time and space that the International Festival of Contemporary Music, directed by Ivan Fedele and now in its sixtieth edition, will present from October 7th through 16th.

The 26 events of the Festival feature 46 world premiere performances, 27 Italian premieres and 25 commissions, including those in particular to Kaja Saarihao, Pascal Dusapin and Salvatore Sciarrino, winner of the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement. For the first time, the Biennale has also commissioned live-sets: Venetian artist Giacomo Mazzucato, alias Yakamoto Kotzuga, and the duo M+A, alias Michele Ducci and Alessandro Degli Angioli, exponents of the latest electronic music and internationally renowned. The digital music scene is also represented by the Italian debut concert of Japanese artist Ryo Murakami, who belongs to its most radical and innovative fringes, and will be awarded the Silver Lion for new musical talents. And finally, the KL4NG ensemble, the more adventurous and audacious extension of Accroche Note, reinterprets avant-garde music with the help of a live-set, creating new textures that weave voice, instruments and new technology.
