Austrian Cultural Forum Kyiv
This year Austria will be presented at the festival "Construction" by the contemporary music band RESSI/BENES: Szilard Benes (HU) – clarinet, bass clarinet, Christof Ressi (A) – sound, video, programming.
Both musicians share a desire for crossing frontiers: Szilard Benes is constantly seeking to extend the sonic possibilities of his instrument, inspired by contemporary music, free jazz and also klezmer, while Christof Ressi loves to design live-electronic setups and computer programs which allow him spontaneous and direct manipulation of sound and video.
Ressi / Benes will perform at the festival online. The performance will take place on June 22nd at 20:00 on the Facebook-page of the festival. After the performance, the audience will be able to communicate with the musicians live during an artist talk.
