“What could a musikFabrik (music factory) be?”
When asked this question, a young child answered, “That’s where they create music that hasn’t been made yet.”
On Sunday, May 13, 2012 at 6 pm in the EMPAC Concert Hall in Troy, New York, the last event of the EMPAC curated season will take place. It’s a free concert that features the trail blazing German group, musikFabrik who will be performing a program of contemporary classics. John Cage, Richard Barrett, and Claude Vivier will be heard alongside new compositions developed in residence at Harvard University with PhD composition students.
Ensemble musikFabrik has been commissioning new works and performing unknown music since 1991. The Cologne-based soloist ensemble plays more than 100 international concerts each year, and has built a close association with prominent conductors and composers.
