unexpected territories – david tudor Exhibitions, Concerts, Conference, Workshops
1.7. – 10.7.2022
St. Elisabeth Church, Villa Elisabeth, ACUD Gallery, Meinblau Project Space

The series »unexpected territories« by singuhrprojekte explores the traces of the American interpreter, composer, performer and pioneer of live electronics David Tudor (1926-1996). Tudor is one of the central figures in the American and international music scene after the second world war.
The focus of »unexpected territories« is on the concrete-practical effects of Tudor's ideas, utopias and works in the present. Tudor's artistic companions, collaborators, selected sound artists and composers are invited to both re-perform Tudor’s works and reflect on David Tudor's works and concepts and to work with them in new artistic productions. The program presents five exhibitions, seven concerts, three workshops and a conference.
