Sixtrum performs Exotica: für aussereuropäische Instrumente by Mauricio Kagel.
Exotic instruments and invented languages await you in a grand evening where six seasoned percussionists meet the challenge of a highly cosmopolitan work, not unlike the Olympics for which it was originally created. Through the work’s fascinating exotic roots, its uncontrollable energy is revealed, simultaneously questioning musical construction and the dominance of Western music. Sixtrum’s explosive sounds soar, leading our imagination through uncharted territory. Addressing our sixth sense, voice and percussion joyously echo a mega universal celebration.
Exotica: für aussereuropäische Instrumente (1970-71), 50:00non Occidental instrument
