Between primeval noise and harmony of the spheres

Music workshop

September 28 — 30, 2018

nitsch museum, Mistelbach, AT

Workshop on the music of the Orgies Mysteries Theatre with Hermann Nitsch conducted by Leopoldo Siano.

The roots of Hermann Nitsch’s Theatre of Orgies and Mysteries are primarily philosophical and musical. Nitsch’s musical oeuvre, which is an interesting blend of Anton Bruckner and John Cage, comprises not only “performance music” but also symphonies, ensemble and organ works. This seminar provides an intensive immersion into the philosophical/musical world of Hermann Nitsch and his Orgies Mysteries Theatre. With audio samples featuring commentary, Nitsch’s music is linked more closely with his entire oeuvre.

The workshop is run by Dr. Leopoldo Siano, musicologist and lecturer at the University of Cologne.
