Music Festival Hear&Now — Mauricio Silva Orendain
For the 4th edition of the Hear&Now Music Festival, Liestal will once again resound with music from classic to jazz, ambient to rocky, and from soft to loud, presented at various venues around town.
Born in Mexico City and currently based in Basel, composer and versatile keyboard player Mauricio Silva Orendain is currently working with unconventional tuning systems to explore a bridge between microtonality and sound synthesis in search of authentic, rich sound sculptures. His performance at the Hear&Now Festival will be a revival of the piano, his primary instrument, with new compositions moving through prepared piano, electronics, and spatialization to bring timbre and atmosphere to the forefront.
Tickets are available at the evening box office, normally half an hour before concert start.
