CMRC and the EMS Synthi 100: Electronic Music from Greece and Sweden

Concert of four solo works commissioned by documenta 14 for the rare EMS Synthi 100

The restoration of the historic EMS Synthi 100 is a documenta 14 project, which led to the commissioning of new compositions based on this instrument. These pieces, presented here for the first time, are performed by two Greek and two Swedish artists, tracing the history of electronic music in their countries through the archival recordings of the CMRC (Contemporary Music Research Center) and EMS (Electronic Music Studios) in Athens and Stockholm respectively. Preceding the performance is a presentation and discussion of the evolution of the EMS Synthi 100 with Marie Gavois (Fylkingen), Marinos Koutsomichalis (CMRC), Mats Lindström (EMS), Frances Morgan (PhD, Royal Academy of Art), and Paolo Thorsen-Nagel (documenta 14).

The commissions are performed by:
Panos Alexiadis
Jonas Broberg
Marinos Koutsomichalis
Lisa Stenberg

The discussion is held in Dimitris Mitropoulos Hall. In English
