April 29th 5PM, at Mark Morris Dance Center, Ekmeles opens Bang on a Can’s Long Play Festival with a performance of Karlheinz Stockhausen’s legendary 1969 work Stimmung.
A work that explores the interiority of vowels and the self, Stimmung manages to be utopian, private, universal, spiritual, sexual, goofy, and ecstatic all at once.
