Uncertain States Bernhard Lang
Soft Machines. Two Abstract Machines

Concert and Discussion

Bernhard Lang’s Monadologie XVIII “Moving Architecture”, which takes statelessness and emigration as its theme, was inspired by a spectacular building in the heart of New York – the Austrian Cultural Forum by Raimund Abraham –, by Bob Dylan’s Like a Rolling Stone and Rose Ausländer’s writings. After American singer Daisy Press and the Trio Amos from Vienna perform a new chamber music version of this work, Bernhard Lang discusses his compositions with Werner Grünzweig, head of the Academy’s music archive.
