UH Fest at CEU - Charlemagne Palestine: lecture and talk (USA)

UH Fest at CEU

UH Fest is one of the rare events dedicated to adventurous modern music in Hungary. Since 2001 they have staged more than 400 performances during 6 festivals and a number of one-off events. UH Fest has been putting special emphasis on presenting unconventional approaches towards music and pinpointing individual national scenes, which are often left uncovered by the domestic media and large-scale festivals. Their deliberate strategy to juxtapose artists not just from different countries, genres, but also with different approaches and moods. They are confident that such exploration, inter-cultural communication is a fertile ground for creative ideas, and a source of a new kind of joy. UH Fest at CEU presents two New York based artists who will talk about their lives, creative activities and works in personal and performative style, and a concert of six Hungarian experimental musicians.

Lecture and talk by Charlemagne Palestine (USA)

A descendant of a Jewish family from Odessa and was originally trained to be a cantor in the 60's, Palestine earliest works were compositions for carillon and electronic drones. In the 70's he started to write ritualistic music using tape manipulations and synthesizers. However, it was his intense piano and organ perfomances which made him legendary; his stage presence: the cognac, the teddybears, the hats and his colourful shirts made him an icon.
