Musica Electronica Nova 2017
May 19 - May 27
The question of identity is definitely one of the most prominent questions of our contemporary world, expressed notably in arts and music.
One of the obvious reasons to ask it is the development of technologies which spread increasingly every day in our lives and activities. On a concrete level, because our tools are changing and offering new perspectives all the time, but more profoundly because technologies are re-defining our attitudes, our ability to move physically or virtually, and our relationships.
During the Musica Eelectronica Nova Festival, we attempt to explore different facets of those changes from several perspectives. How can somebody define the personality of John Zorn, except through the acceptance of radical changes in the definition of a musician or composer?

How can we experience today the very intriguing work of Jani Cristou, who left us a brilliant and unique catalogue of musical theatre? How can we just accept, in our hyper-controlled world, to be taken to the unknown situation brought to us by the composers commissioned by the Festival to write new pieces? Maybe one of the answers remains hidden but we wish everyone to enjoy discovering with us those new identities.
