Light Trace – Catchpenny Ensemble

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

With Light Trace the Catchpenny Ensemble from The Hague, one of the Gaudeamus Award Ensembles this year, takes you on an intriguing journey in which the audience is immersed in sound, light and video. In an intense black-and-white world, thin, penetrating tones alternate with sharp flickering lights and a hypnotic video projection.

In Light Trace the ensemble is experimenting with the use of an interactive score. The musicians are steered by the score, which does not consist of notes on paper, but mainly of images which in turn are influenced by the video and the light, and vice versa.


Yael Levy, Nikos Kokolakis, Sascha Thiele, Þráinn Hjálmarsson, Bergrún Snæbjörnsdóttir & Tivon Rice - Light Trace
Shin Kim - …Selbstgespräche 1
