Parasite Village

Fiston Mwanza Mujila

DTzM Musik 2022/23

“(…) this is the meaning of the prefix para in the word parasite: He is beside, he is with, he is set apart from, he is not on the thing but on the relation. He has relations, as they say, and makes a system out of them.” Michael Serres, The Parasite

A summit of transtraditional music: musicians from the Trickster Orchestra Berlin, the Hezarfen Ensemble Istanbul and the Omnibus Ensemble from Tashkent come together for the first time in a residency in Hellerau. Modules by international composers, all of whom are also present as performers, become the basis for improvisation for the collective, a breeding ground for new connections. As an organism of radical diversity, the Future Tradition Orchestra negotiates indigenous and polytraditional instrumental techniques and various forms of notation: from graphic score to “mimesis”. 

The evening will be introduced by an essay performance by Fiston Mwanza Mujila.
