In this unusual time, concert halls and culture establishments are on the lookout for more new ways of hosting shows. If the audience cannot come to us, we will go to the audience!
In light of the restrictions on gathering during the pandemic, the Liepāja concert hall Great Amber has prepared a new summer program which can be viewed online. We want to open the summer season with a dazzling event! In collaboration with the ambassadors of electronic music in Latvia, Dirty Deal Audio, we have prepared a surprise for our listeners, an adventure like none before – a concert on the rooftop of the concert hall Great Amber!
With the sun setting and dyeing the panorama of Liepāja in lively colors, ambient cosmic electronic music will be performed, enriched will an intricately created lighting design. Five brilliant Latvian electronica artists will be performing live from the rooftop.
- sound artist and poet Jeļena Glazova,
- new media artist and musician Gustavs Lociks a.k.a. Glociks,
- sound artist, electronica and theater & cinema music composer and performer Toms Auniņš,
- representatives of the audiovisual organism Trihars, sound artists Kristaps Biters, Pēters Riekstiņš, and Rihards Vītols,
- sound artists, co-creator of the radio show Tīrkultūra and teacher Reinis Semēvics.
Lights will be arranged by the lighting designer of the Great Amber, Mārtiņš Jansons, who will be illuminating not only the roof but the entire concert hall building.
Listeners who wish to enjoy the concert outside of their homes are invited to visit the Liepāja concert hall, art space Civita Nova (ground floor) and 2nd floor gallery, where up to 25 people will have the opportunity to watch the performance on a large screen and listen to it via powerful speakers.
