Music and the environment – Concert by Christophe Charles

20. October 2015 Curriculum, Talks

28. October | 8 pm | Klangdome HfG

Christophe Charles is a composer and professor at Musashino Art University, Tokyo. He has been using electronic devices since the 1970s to produce environmental music. With sonic examples, he will discuss the famous statement by Henry David Thoreau: “Music is continuous, only listening is intermittent”, how it is possible to compose and perform a music which is open to the sounds of the environment, and the idea of “interpenetration without obstruction”.
