Special Guests des Abends: Ivo Berg und Milo Machover

Jeweils ein besonderer Gast und sein inspirierendes Genre werden eingeladen, die persönliche Begegnung und den unmittelbaren Austausch mit dem Zafraan Ensemble und dem Publikum zu feiern. Dabei dient zunächst ein von François Sarhan entwickeltes LOG BOOK dazu, zusammen zu finden, um die aktuelle Zeit zu reflektieren, bevor neues Repertoire erkundet wird.

Furthermore, what technical studies and (if applicable) new notational approaches for melody, rhythm, timbre, and interaction derived from these metaphors can best facilitate this goal?
