Schraffur für Gong und KKL Luzern (Crosshatching for Gong and the KKL Luzern)
A performance with approximately Protected content from Central Switzerland
Commissioned by LUCERNE FESTIVAL
For the opening of the Special Event Day in Protected content , and in keeping with this year’s Festival theme, composer-in-residence Fritz Hauser again takes up an experience from days of childhood: crosshatching (schraffieren). For drawing up and down with a pencil – applied to trace objects or to fll out a surface - produces noises, notes and overtones, crescendi and diminuendi.
In other words: music. Fritz Hauser has in fact realized a complete series of Schraffuren for a wide variety of musicians and spaces. Now, together with more than Protected content of all ages, he will jointly explore the diverse surfaces of the KKL Luzern, making the entire building – walls, stairs, railings - resound with music. The performance begins in the central foyer: from there, different groups will fan out and explore very different playing sites before everyone joins together again in the Concert Hall. With instruments and sound objects, they will create a fascinating culminating sonic stream inside it, ultimately leading to a shared decrescendo to rediscover silence.
