Homeland – Foreigners – Home is the motto of PARK MUSIC New Horizons 2019, which parallels the motto of the Rhineland-Palatinate’s Cultural Summer program, “Homelands” (“heima(ten)”).
The festival begins at 4:00 PM with a Sound-Art-Walk from the meadow car parking lot behind the golf club to the Trombacher Hof. For about one and a half hours, visitors walk through fields, meadows, woods, and along the Trombach creak to the historic former monastery. The festival commences with a “ringing in” by the visitors using objects created by sound artist Bernd Bleffert. At following stations up to the Trombacher Hof, many sounds and images can be heard and seen: African drum music played by 10 young people from Café Global (Comprehensive School Dortmund Gartenstadt), groovy jazz sounds on the violin with Mateusz Smoczynski (Poland), sound objects (both days), large photos of the local landscape through the eye of Samira Khani (Iran; both days), and traditional Persian music on the Tar with Ali Mohammadi Kolagar (Iran).
Once visitors have arrived at the Trombacher Hof, they are invited to have a picnic in a beautiful landscape during the break. Visitors will have the chance to rest and talk with each other and with the artists.
Guests are kindly asked to bring their own food. Drinks will be served by family Martin, vineyard Villa Silius.
After the sunset, the evening continues in the former Monastery Chapel.In delicate lighting (Martin Mulik, Slovakia), visitors experience an uninterrupted flow of rousing contemporary percussion (Jens Brülls), virtuoso jazz violin, Persian tar with Oriental singing, and sound installations (Sigune von Osten / Sebastian Rietz).
Afterwards, guests breathe in the fresh air, look into the starry sky, and experience the silence.
Music by Steve Reich, Iannis Xenakis, Wolfgang Rihm, Samir Odeh-Tamimmi, Peter Gahn, as well as African and improvised music can be enjoyed.
