Libero Mureddu – Sonic Avatars

Libero Mureddu’s second doctoral concert.

Differently, in the second doctoral concert no textual instructions will be given, and four instrumental improvisers will have to react to audiovisual recordings of their own playing. Four other players, hidden from the audience, will trigger and manipulate in real time the digital doppelgängers of the four instrumentalists.

Mannerheimintie renovation project

Access to the Musiikkitalo from the direction of Mannerheimintie will be difficult. We recommend that you allow enough time for your arrival and use the entrance on the side of Kansalaistori if possible. According to current information, the entrance to Mannerheimintie will also remain in use throughout the renovation, but pedestrian routes can be challenging at times.

We recommend following the official information channels of the renovation project, where you can find the most up-to-date information.
