Avant-premiere of M#1, new work by and with composer Pierre Slinckx
Quatuor MP4 mainly performs works from the 20th and 21st century and presents new work by living composers, with consistent special attention for Belgian composers.
After a 2-day residence in the AB Salon, they will perform the piece ‘M#1 (for electronica and string quartet)’ by and with composer Pierre Slinckx in avant-première.
The work is an attempt to completely integrate electronica into the realm of chamber music. Pierre Slinckx joins the quartet and plays a modified instrument built out of two cheap midi-controllers and a laptop. No rocket science here, just pure craftsmanship.
