Club Fluxus: But What About – Pendeltrap

This concert has already taken place. Click here for our current concert programme.

Three individuals looking for a common identity or “common ground”. A proposal creates a counter-proposal, which in turn results in a new idea. In this way there is always a forward movement, but the question remains every time: Are we going along with the musical stream or are we putting our ideals first? With this new program, But What About investigates what it is like to find a way around this. With composers such as Terry Riley and John Cage and new works by Patrick Clark, Sunbin Kim and Jan-Peter de Graaff, BWA looks at culture vs. subculture, mainstream vs. alternative, thesis vs. antithesis.

Fluxus, which means ‘fluid’ or ‘constantly changing’, is a series in Club Nine. This series focuses on composers, young ensembles and musicians who together showcase the latest developments in contemporary music. Where possible, the composers will be present and will discuss their own work. The small-scale and informal set-up places the audience in very close contact with the performers.
