The French composer Gérard Grisey, one of the most important composers of the 21st century and a representative of spectralism, was fascinated throughout his short life by the laws of space and ways of making the cosmos audible. In 1989, he took pulsars – rotating neutron stars whose electromagnetic waves can be converted into sound waves – as the point of departure for his Le Noir de l’Étoile. Grisey’s one-hour composition for six percussionists distributed around the auditorium behind the audience, which is now a classic of new music, explores the sound of the extinguished star. Grisey wrote the piece for Les Percussions de Strasbourg; this will be the first performance by Tyrolean musicians, namely Andreas Schiffer and his Schlagzeugkollektiv Tirol. An unforgettable concert experience.
