Out of the Dark

Out of the Dark – a site specific concert for the old Athens Stock Exchange, ensemble and electronics.

Out of the Dark is the latest of Lemur’s pieces recontextualizing major works from the contemporary and experimental musical canon. Using the ensemble’s particular blend of improvisation and composition as a mirror, Lemur transform titles and concepts into new and original work. The spaces of the once mighty building of Sofokles Street is presented in an arrangement inspired by Pauline Oliveros’s  score from 1998. The audience is surrounded by both musicians and a tailor-made speaker system.

Commissioned by Onassis Foundation

Premiered June 7th as part of Tectonics Athens
