Jason Sharp (photo), Kaie Kellough, Tawhida Tanya Evanson, Joe Grass, Stefan Schneider, JahSun as well as Kevin Yuen Kit Lo (visual design) stand for improvisation and mixed media compositions. FYEAR combine the sound of their ensemble with literary texts, confronting us with our struggles, our fictions and our freedom. Digital poetry meets electro-acoustic. Immersive, maximal, evocative.
The last great saxophonist who played with Miles Davis will finally be a guest in Moers: Kenny Garrett and Sounds From The Ancestors is the name of Garrett's project, which shaped an entire generation with his unmistakable sound.
As part of the major moers festival focus on György Ligeti, who would have celebrated his 100th birthday on the festival Sunday (May 28th, 2023), we are looking forward to the fantastic SWR vocal ensemble. This deals with compositions by Ligeti and can be experienced in different contexts.
Fans of improvised music can look forward to a meeting of three exceptional musicians with the Seabrook Trio: guitarist Brandon Seabrook comes with Gerald Cleaver on drums and Cooper-Moore on "Diddley Bow".
