In ‘That Damn Borderline’, composers and string player Marco Fusi gathers to explore the space in between composition and sound art. Composers are challenged to make new pieces especially for Marco Fusi, that plays both the violin and viola d’amore, a baroque instrument with seven strings. All composers have done their own research on sound art and composition, and the resulting pieces are fruits of that work.
Award winning ensemble Nordic Affect offers a Christmas programming set to provide a fresh look on what Christmas and its music can be in the 21st century.
