One of the unexpected encounters will be a performance prepared in collaboration with the music experimentalist and sound performer Petr Vrba. For the occasion of the celebration of Art’s Birthday we have invited the German-Italian duo Thomas Lehn and Tiziana Bertoncini whose specific characteristics are unexpected encounters of a classical and electronic musical instrument. Their work is based upon the contrastive combination of contemporary approaches to the language of music with principles that are basically classical. When joined to Petr Vrba, the relentless explorer of various forms of improvisation, a trio will ensue for the celebration of Art’s Birthday that oscillates in the areas of unconventional electroacoustic music and free improvisation. This premiere performance will be also heard on the airwaves of the satellite network of EBU during the birthday celebrations and is supported by Goethe institute Prague a Istituto Italiano di Cultura di Praga.
