In the Spirit of Dada!

Rachid Ouramdane

Contemporary Swiss composers were asked to compose new pieces for the 100th anniversary of the Dada movement which would revive and celebrate the spirit of Dada in a musical adventure. At the heart of the programme are the first performances of Marc Kilchenmann (Bern), John Wolf Brennan (Lucerne), a song by Paul Suits (Basel), and the very latest orchestral work draKOOL by Daniel Schnyder (Zürich/ New York). Film music by the early Dadaist Erik Satie, the Octandre ensemble performing music by the pioneer of sound Edgard Varèse, and works by post Dadaists John Cage und György Ligeti complete the experience.
