Let’s merry-go-round!

The ECAS-carousel with music for bodies in motion

The carousel – an object of yearning from childhood days. Once in motion, its centrifugal force elicited screams of joy. Although the musikprotokoll carousel looks like the ones in days of old, every ride takes you to a different acoustic present and, at the same time, to a new world of sound. The pieces can only be heard and felt while our bodies are rotating.
Artists from all over Europe have created works for the ECAS carousel. Five years ago, musikprotokoll joined up with eight European partner festivals to found the ECAS/ICAS (European and International Cities of Advanced Sound) festival network. To mark this anniversary of a joint search for instruments for an uncertain future, partner institutions invited those artists who are now setting this carousel in musical motion. A merry-go-round for advanced players.
