Tele-Visions / Persepolis

MaerzMusik 2019

With the double opening of two projects in silent green, the second day of the festival embarks on a media-archaeological time travel. “Tele-Visions” lifts and presents treasures from more than 20 television archives and five decades – a critical media history of new music on TV from the 1950s to the 1990s.
At 8 pm, “A Utopian Stage” traces the legacy of the important Iranian Festival of Arts in Shiraz-Persepolis, which in the 1960s and 1970s invited artists from around the world to engage in a transnational, experimental exchange of creativity and knowledge and thus intercepted historical, political and ideological demarcations.
At 9 pm, both projects’ trajectories intersect in the performance of Iannis Xenakis’ legendary tape composition “Persepolis”, which was commissioned by the Shiraz Festival and left traces in French television archives.
