KuuB Concert: Rieteke Hölscher – Disturbing Lights

Composer Rieteke Hölscher present the multidisciplinary work Disturbing Light in cooperation with graphic designer Marij Janssen. A dialogue between image and music, in which figures throw shadows on the wall accompanied by violin, piano and almost organic sounding electronic soundscapes. Dreamy, elusive, multiversal and sometimes indecisive: Disturbing Light takes the audience on an experience in image and sound in which time seems to have a will of its own.

Rieteke Hölscher strives in her compositions for a unique acoustic environment and a strong sense of accessibility, ideally bridging the gap between music history, the contemporary music practise and the audience. Marij Janssen is as a sculptor currently focused on the space that every person takes or rather does not take, and with that, the inner world of each person and the question whether or not you are sharing this with the outside world.
