Part of Ultima Festival New York, Berlin-based Danish sound artist Jacob Kirkegaard presents Faust as well as other works by the pioneering electronic musician Else Marie Pade (not present). The acclaimed piano/percussion quartet Yarn/WIre perform works by composers Øyvind Torvund, Simon Steen-Andersen and a collaborative pice by Anna Thorvaldsdottir and Sigurdur Gudjonsson. Born in 1924, after serving time in a WWII prison camp, Else Marie Pade cultivated a diverse body of works and became the first composer in Denmark to compose with electronics. Over the past few years Pade has developed a collaboration with Jacob Kirkegaard— bridging an age difference of over 50 years, the duo released a collaborative record in 2013 (Important). (web site)
