Photo report: Gosheven at OUT.FEST 2021

REMAIIN’s Portugese partner festival OUT.FEST (organized by OUT.RA) has made its pick from the open call, announced shortly before the global pandemic of 2020 – Hungarian experimental muscian Gosheven, who performed at their event on June 5. Gosheven presented his new work „Antipodal Polyphony”, and accompanied it with a lecture.

The essay is complemented by his musical contribution „ Soft Turbulences”, played on the Pan-Ney, an instrument of his own design tuned in just Intonation.

What is not music? Giacinto Scelsi and the Orient

The text is accompanied by a musical homage to Scelsi by saxophonist Andre Vida and composer Augustin Maurs.

Announcement of open call results postponed due to global pandemic

In March, REMAIIN announced an open call for musical proposals that deal with or incorporate non-western influences in experimental and new music. Deadline for submission was April 15, Wednesday.

However, since the global pandemic of the coronavirus has, for the time being, made the organization of concerts impossible, the results will not be announced yet.

We kindly ask the participants of the open call, as well as followers of the project, to be patient, and follow the information on this website and our social media until the global situation is clear enough and we can announce the first list of the artists of REMAIIN.
