GAUDIUM ET SPES - 7th Ambient Festival „Civilization of Love“ from 19th to 22nd of January 2012 in St. Aposteln, Cologne
GAUDIUM ET SPES – joy and hope. ’Joy in music’ and ‘hope for a better future’ represent the pivotal theme of the programme of the 7th Ambientfestival of E’DE COLOGNE. The festival is searching for the mystical element of contemporary music, at the point where ambient, techno and contemporary classic meet. And it finds this element in the combination of electronic music and contemporary classical music – a combination well proven over the years for spherical space exploration in the Romanesque church St. Aposteln in Cologne. In 2012, the festival will be expanded with the symposium ’Transcendency in Music’ and a festival-techno-party on the Saturday of the event weekend. The ambientfestival goes far beyond the boundaries of the genre, opens new doors and overcomes old listening habits.
The Saturday of the festival weekend is under the banner of „SPES“: The Berlin master pianist Nils Frahm and singer Peter Broderick will work on the hope for a better future. Kompakt’s ambience veteran Jörg Burger will start the evening with a live set, followed by Frahm who will introduce his new album Felt. ‘Positivist piano compositions bursting with hope… like dust in the sunlight’ commented a reviewer. Singer Peter Broderick is reminiscent of Elliot Smith in his most quiet moments. That evening, he will accompany Frahm‘s piano music with his beautifully melancholic voice – like a bird that only sings once before it dies. Full of hope.
