Blurred Edges
Sonntag 16.06.2024 20:00 HfMT, Mendelssohn-Saal

According to Filipino local accounts, Musikong Bumbong was an attempt by 19th-century nationalists and revolutionaries to create a uniquely Filipino sound. These attempts led ot the creation of the all-bamboo ensembles organized along the lines of the marching band, playing music composed by Filipino composers.
The project "Musikong Bumbong" presented in Manila and Hamburg blends traditional and experimental music. Reviving Katipunan- era marching bands with handmade bamboo instruments, five composers from the Philippines and Germany will create experimental and contemporary protest songs using these specific bamboo instruments.
All composers will craft protest songs for 15 performers who will present all pieces as a newly formed band. The project bridges historical and contemporary expressions, fostering cross-cultural collaborations and will be the starting point for a collection of experimental notations and scores for these particular instruments.
The project is financially supported by ifa, Authority for Culture and Media in Hamburg, Musikfonds e.V. and Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and Media

Tintin Patrone is a German-Filipino Sound- and Performacne artist. She is captivated by the exploration of interconnections among music, art, sound, and experimental forms of expression. Her creative works revolve around the visual aspects of music and the ways in which personal and societal connections are established with it.
By involving herself with robots and artificial intelligence in her artistic practice, Tintin Patrone challenges established notions of human subjectivity and physical presence. Through the integration of these technological elements, her objective is to go beyond outdated concepts of "human nature" and nurture fresh perspectives that continuously evolve alongside contemporary advancements in science and technology.
Incorporating non-human entities as participants becomes a purposeful endeavor for Tintin Patrone, aiming to disrupt conventional understandings of human subjectivity and embodiment. Her performances, installations, and plays are inspired by genres such as musical Concept-Art, Fluxus, and experimental music.
Another profound source of inspiration that shapes Tintin Patrone's artistic approach is the culture of associations and collectives. She frequently collaborates and engages with fellow artists and groups, creating an environment of mutual exploration. In 2009 she founded the noise ensemble Krachkisten Orchestra, in 2012 the International MusicMotorcycleClub, a regular event for sound art and mobile sound reinforcement, and in 2018 the performance collective The Ambassadors of Disappointment in collaboration with the Goethe Center in Guadalajara, Mexico. In 2021 she opened a temporary fake Asian snack bar in Hamburg called german Rice, a place for experimental music and experimental food. Since 2022, she has been increasingly concerned with artificial life forms, singing robots and their integration into nature-related ideologies.
