Quatuor Bozzini & Niels Lyhne Løkkegaard

Canadian string quartet Bozzini loves taking risks, experimenting, collaborating and stepping off the beaten track. From 20th-century avant-garde composers to contemporary drone artists, the quartet knows how to deal with it. On this Saturday night they will explore microtonality and minimalism in the work Colliding Bubbles (surface tension and release) by Danish sound artist Niels Lyhne Løkkegaard.

Colliding Bubbles (surface tension and release) is a work for string quartet as well as harmonica quartet: the musicians play harmonica and a stringed instrument simultaneously. Together, the eight instruments together play a subtle game of timbral and harmonic attraction and repulsion; from surface tension to gentle ecstasy.
