Gen Ken Montgomery's Super Group - audio-visual scored improvisation
For the first time since it's creation in 2015 at MOMA/PS1 Allgold Printshop: Gen Ken Montgomery's Super Group. The Super Group is a electro-acoustic and visual immersive project Montgomery conceived to explore graphic notation. It features the incredible talent of artists and performers he has been fortunate to know in the 35 years he has been involved in the New York Experimental and Underground music scene. The Super Group continues his work with the spatialization of sound that began with his octophonic concert compositions under the tutelage of Berlin composer Conrad Schnitzler in the 1980s. He first presented these 8-channel electronic music concerts at Generator, the sound art gallery he founded in 1989 in NYC, and has continued to work with multi-channel sound since.
Music/sound and film/video artists TBA.

Venezia come ispirazione musicale. Se ogni luogo cela una storia, a Venezia le sale dei palazzi profumano delle note di un pianoforte, dalla finestra di un hotel si ode il trillo di un violino, e all'Hotel Londra Palace nel 1877 Tchaikovsky compone parte della Quarta Sinfonia, espressione del suo intenso e autobiografico impulso creativo.Il suo genio sperimentatore lo accomuna ad artisti di background differenti, ed è su queste contaminazioni che l'hotel in Riva Schiavoni ha immaginato la rassegna Buon Compleanno Tchaikovsky curata dalla giornalista Elena Ferrarese. Tre incontri e concerti dedicati a Demetrio Stratos, Duke Ellington e a Tchaikovsky stesso, fino al 7 maggio, giorno del suo compleanno.
Con un salto di anni e di luoghi d'ispirazione, il 29 aprile si parla di Duke Ellington. Pianista, compositore e direttore d'orchestra, diventa icona del jazz, dell'America Music come egli stesso ama definire la propria musica. Trascende i confini di genere e arriva a includere elementi di blues, gospel, musica classica e colonne sonore.
Venerdì 29 aprile, giorno del compleanno di Duke Ellington, l'Hotel Londra Palace ne ricorda lo spirito artistico con un incontro con l'artista canadese crossmediale Katherine Liberovskaya e Phill Niblock, regista e compositore, fotografo ufficiale di Duke Ellington.I jazzisti Filippo Vignato e Mattia Magatelli ripercorrono un viaggio musicale nell'universo del compositore americano, rivisitandone i brani con un arrangiamento per trombone e contrabbasso.
Venerdì 29 aprile 2016, ore 17.00, Incontro con Phill Niblock e Katherine Liberovskaya, modera Veniero Rizzardi
