Vienna Weekend Guide May 4-9

beer fest

BEER FEST: Creative brewers present their most exciting beers of the season at the Craft Bier Fest on 5th and 6th of May.  My personal recommendation is to stop by at the Next Level Brewing  stand ( booth 31) where apart from the core range they will also present their experimental batch of a Blueberry Pale Ale – Fruitbeer. Purple in color, very fruity and with some lactose sugar to get a very creamy mouthfeel. 20liter only so it will be very limited. Cheers!

improvisers orchestraCONCERT: Since 2004, the Vienna Improvisers Orchestra has been the first big ensemble in Austria to represent a specific form of experimental composition and complex improvised music, thus entering a discourse on novel concepts of sound organisation. Ad-hoc designed structures conveyed via hand signals and co-operations with authors of experimental literature are the most characteristic features of the orchestra’s unpredictable soundscapes. In a complex web of relations in terms of both content and agents, an area of tension is opened that allows self-referential collective phrasing and shaping of musical texture and process. Michael Fischer, who launched the Vienna Improvisers Orchestra in 2004, has worked as an instant-composition conductor with improvising orchestras and temporary mega-ensembles in Europe, the United States, Canada and Japan. After his fulminant brut-premiere in November 2015, the Vienna Improvisers Orchestra ignites this time with Ferdinand Schmatz linguistic fires with his orphic sketches, then, out of silence, a performance of Marion Steinfellner (Kazuo Ohno, Charlotte Ikeda), whose spin will be in turn runway for the exploartory widnesses of the Vienna Improvisers Orchestra.
