Mykyta Prykhodchenko aka Nick Acorne is an accomplished contemporary composer and installation artist whose work is largely devoted to the ontological questions of intellectual creation in the age of ultimate distraction. What are these fundamental achievements of humanism over the past centuries that are taking themselves to absurdity in an eclectic spectacle of granular synthesis, real-time composition, and meme culture, and what is the role of the human in this virtual nonetheless hyper-real world? How fragile is the human interface in the tension between physicality, null space and anthropocentric algorithms? To expose oneself to these mental- and real-sensory questions in the context of the hereby re-installed DUNKELKAMMER and to allow the immersion in absolute sound is ultimately up to everyone, but at this point it turns out to be extremely promising, to say the least. We are excited to the bursting point. A quadraphonic opus magnum awaits us.
Concerts in absolute darkness: already successfully established, this series are dedicated to presentation of experimental musical content with the aim of intensifying the physical experience. Darkroom offers a challenge and a special experience for the audience as well as for the musicians, who usually prepare a special composition for the evening.
Until the Corona crisis, the Darkroom was a fixed part of the Forum Stadtpark's music program. In the newly renovated cellar, the darkroom series will also be resumed.
