Subset Festival ⊆ – New Music Festival

Solistenensemble Kaleidoskop & Maya Dunietz • Sound of difference
In co-production with the Athens Conservatoire

Curated by Stavros Gasparatos


Founded in 2006 in Berlin, Solistenensemble Kaleidoskop has since been dedicated to developing new forms of experimental music theatre. With an open mindset, the ensemble creates new formats of collaboration with international artists from other music genres and scenes.

They will be performing composer Maya Dunietz’s work which brings to the fore a throbbing musical universe where ghost notes make their appearance. Slow gestures. Long structures. Waves of pitches sliding up and down in a constant dance and an infinite search for equilibrium.

The Subset Festival, the multifaceted music platform launched last year, held by the Athens Epidaurus Festival in co-production with the Athens Conservatoire, returns refreshed but always with a focus on the dialogue between contemporary music and new media.

Named after a mathematical term (subset ⊆), the Subset Festival together diverse versions of contemporary musical creation, incorporating a wide variety of artistic trends.

From 10 to 14 June, the renovated Conservatoire venues will host musical ensembles and soloists, established and up-and-coming alike, both from Greece and around the world, visual and sound installations and performances, as well as open call workshops.
