Outernational is a concert series on the practice of transtraditional music. Along dissolving borders we listen to music as a story of change and migration.
In »Amazon Stories« soloists from a wide range of artistic practices – from Persian classical music to performative voice art to zither, composition and video – become a community of practice, searching for possibilities of “coming together” in a fractured world and negotiating spaces and potentials of diversity. Compositions and improvisations in various instrumentations meet archive recordings of Iranian songs; myths of freedom and Amazons unfold a symbolic life of their own on a visual level. Musically, the concert performance wanders from compositions from the collective to improvisational encounters in various constellations to electronics and composed, ancient music. The audience becomes part of Heinrich Horwitz’s and Elisa Erkelenz’s staging, which continually explores spaces of encounter and of the listener.
