C3 ROADSHOW with e.g. Hauschka
Cross-linx has entered into a European collaboration with likeminded festivals C3 Festival Essen, Sounds on Stockholm and Tallinn Music Week. Under the name C3 Roadshow, the most appealing, national indie classical acts of today will be presented. Hauschka, from Germany, who creates his own sound, with his grand piano ‘augmented’ with ping pong balls, erasers and bottle tops, which would arouse the envy of Yann Tiersen, John Cage and Erik Satie. In C-Ode, the Dutch trio around harpist Gwyneth Wentink, will be performing an audio-visual version of Terry Riley’s masterpiece ‘In C’. From Estonia, TU:T will be combining electronics, glitch and acoustics. And the Swedish violin/electronics duo Therearenomorefourseaons will give a pleasantly deregulated interpretation of Ravel’s classic ‘Bolero’.
