Tamara Miller: In Passage (composition title)

“In Passage” is a music theatre project through which we explore our bonds with a technological and digital world, while still remaining analogue and physical humans. Through the interplay between an (especially developed) moving sound sculpture, a choir, an ensemble of musicians and new compositions, we find new connections between the virtual and the ‘real’, within our modern urban environment. How ‘human’ are we in a world that is less and less reliant on in-person contact with its new technological and digital modes of communication, work and life? How does the invisible intersection between being digitally and physically present become ‘tactile’ through means of music and sound? To create a mirror and internal feedback, two compositions were created for the kinetic loudspeaker instrument developed by artists and designers Parker Heyl, Mackenzie van Dam and Georgios Adamopoulos and the team at 4DSOUND: One by Ted Hearne, especially for the public space and one by Tamara Miller, for the interior space. In co-creating two different music pieces at two different sites, one an underground public space and the other a classic building of a former ‘Männergesangsverein’ (Scholastika), the movement through current day Munich is not only literal but creates a thematic echoing between these two ‘opposites’ as well.


The performance takes place in two parts at different locations, performance duration: approx. 120 min. Free entry.

The world premiere of “In Passage” has been postponed to 7 June 2024. The performance on 5 June has been cancelled.
