ACFNY Double Bill: Aki Onda and Demi Broxa

Demi Broxa:
Jakob Schneidewind, bass/electronics
Agnes Hvizdalek, vocals

Aki Onda: Cassette Memories (Morocco 1988 and 2010)
Demi Broxa: Vocals, Electronics, and Bass

Demi Broxa (Jakob Schneidewind, bass/electronics and Agnes Hvizdalek, vocals) from Vienna combines electronic soundscapes with pure vocal sounds, and minimalistic musical structures with organic improvisations. Using only voice, bass and electronics they create fascinating abstract songs that are both direct and complex. Operating between the poles of electronic and acoustic, they create hypnotic club music combined with bizarre sound events.

Particularly known for his "Cassette Memories" -- works compiled from a "sound diary" of field-recordings collected by using the cassette Walkman over the span of the last quarter-century, Aki Onda creates compositions, performances, and visual artwork from those sound memories. For this performance, Onda plays cassette tapes he recorded during his travels to Morocco in 1988 and 2010.

Onda often performs in interdisciplinary fields and has collaborated with filmmakers, visual artists, and choreographers, including Ken Jacobs, Michael Snow, Raha Raissnia, Akio Suzuki, and Takao Kawaguchi. His work has been presented by numerous institutions such as MoMA, The Kitchen, documenta 14, Pompidou Center, Louvre Museum, Palais de Tokyo, Bozar, and many others.

Colorado MahlerFest XXXII

One day in the 1970s, Robert Olson was reading a Mahler biography while sitting at the shore of Lake Dillon near Breckenridge, Colorado - a favorite spot framed by the magnificent 14,000 foot peaks of the Rockies.

Olsen had studied conducting with Hans Swarowsky in Vienna, where he had been deeply moved by the funeral march from Mahler's Symphony No 5 played at the Austrian president's funeral.

Olsen realized that this beautiful Colorado landscape was not unlike Mahler's summertime composing environs, and it was then that he conceived the Colorado MahlerFest.
