World Premiere: Moritz Eggert’s “Industrial” in Stuttgart

Peter Sadlo and the Radio Symphony Orchestra Stuttgart under the direction of Kristjan Järvi will give the world premiere of Moritz Eggert’s percussion concert “Industrial” on 12 February 2009.

The title “Industrial” relates, on the one hand, to a certain direction in music made popular especially by bands such as “Einstürzende Neubauten” (Collapsing New Buildings) and is also called “Industrial.” Extreme, experimental sounds bordering on noise are used in this variety of Punk, very often produced on scrap metal parts or industrial rubbish.

A later commercial orientation of the industrial style was “Techno,” in which similar sounds were produced with electronic means but with the focus on music that could be easily danced to. Both musical directions embody certain ideas of futurism – a fast tempo, the presence of machinelike processes and the attempt to produce ecstasy through the repetition of dissonant sounds as well.

“In my piece,” Eggert says, “I was interested in transferring certain stylistic means associated with these forms of music to an orchestral apparatus; in my case, of course, this was not done entirely free of criticism of these musical processes.”
