KNM from Berlin is one of the most renowned contemporary music ensembles. Founded in 1988 by students of Hans Eisler's Berlin school, Ensemble KNM merges impressive skill with a penchant for experiment. During the Music Electronica Nova performance, KNM will join forces with Cezary Duchnowski (electronics) and with François Bayle – a true legend of electronic music and musique concrete, inventor of the term 'acousmatic music'. We will begin from a special sound show designed by Bayle, followed by Cezary Duchnowski's Bal wiosennej pełni – a special festival commission. Afterwards, we will hear Martin Hiendl's Tonus, based on the harmony of inner tensions of the violin and the cello (composition commissioned by Schallfeld Ensemble), and eventually, Anaparastasis III: The Pianist by Jani Christou, a fascinating and mysterious figure of 20th century music, a student of Carl Gustav Jung.
