Festival of Culture
The Festival of Culture is a musical mass event, which spreads experimental musical culture and sound art. Classical and traditional forms are represented as well as new tendencies and trends; and both – the traditional with the contemporary, the known with the unknown – are merged in innovative programmes. The festival highlights the connection of different musical genres with its concerts and diverse additional programme. An interdisciplinary approach comes to life, in which music, performance, new media and improvisation meet, merge together, and create a harmonious unit.
Music, art, culture, and lifestyle are celebrated each year with changing thematic threads and each find their own and unique place within the festival. Most importantly, the areas do not stand for themselves, but rather appear in interaction with each other. Concerts, performances, exhibitions, improvisations, shows, and panels with artistic as well as cultural aspects create the chance for artists as well as the audience to experience local, national, and international programmes and discover new and exciting facets. Additionally, the Festival of Culture invites artists, soloists, and ensembles to a musical and artistic exchange and thus especially benefits the cultural dialogue.
The Camerata Europaea (CE) realizes as a part of it´s annual programme 2020, a cultural project under the motto Odyssey, indicating classic and traditional art forms in addition to various future tendencies and trends combined into one innovative programme. Odyssey represents the long and unwiedly journey into the inner self. A walk on the path of self-knowledge and perception. It´s the final homecoming, the search of the wasted and lost time, the doubts, the allegorie of life towards revelation and perfection. The long and arduous odyssey of the modern humans, ready to give up or to delete their identities in order to acknowledge and to maintain them. At the heart of the program are the musical sounds and spaces, in which all the other elements, such as the visual, the performance and the new media, are embedded. Tools for this purpose are the artistic series Camerata Experimental, Camerata Mobile and Festival of Culture, which will allegorically convey the motto to the European audience.
