Sisu Percussion ensemble celebrates its 25th Anniversary with a concert at the Ultima festival as well.
Xenakis Pléïades is a milestone work in many ways, written in 1978 and inspired by astronomy and Greek mythology. Xenakis invented a new instrument the sixxen named after the six musicians required and Xenakis.
Composer Lene Grenager, herself an excellent contemporary ensemble musician, compose both acoustic and electronic works, and this new piece, written for SISU, is a tribute to the sound world of Xenakis.
