In addition to operating as an ensemble, stargaze is also a collective of curators initiating and commissioning collaborations and projects in the field of contemporary pop-, electronic and classical music, as well as programming concerts with compositions introducing different facets of today’s music to new audiences.
Below you can find an overview of our projects.
October 1-2nd, 2016 at Funkhaus Nalepastraße, Berlin
“…So it’s basically ‘creator’s jail’…..but on a volunteer, not arrested, basis, and in the Michelberger. But still, they’re all kind of under ‘haus-arrest.’ And: forced to play. Not a bad idea! I’m liking this a lot. I’ve written a screenplay like this in the States where they book you into a hotel and don’t let you out until you’re done. Great room service, tho. Not as good as Alan, but still good. Kidding. Not about the screenplay. That actually happened.”
November 18th and 19th 2016 United States Fitzgerald Theatre, St Paul/ Minneapolis (MIN) and Schofield Auditorium, Eau Claire (WIS)
On initiative of Liquid Music (a series of the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra), we started a Virtual Residency with the Minneapolis-based band Poliça, which you can follow via the Liquid Music Blog featuring interviews with Poliça and members of stargaze, videos and pictures from our first meet-ups with the band and updates on our steps towards the premiere of our collaboration in November 2016, making it possible for stargaze to perform in the US for the very first time. So do keep track of our virtual residency with Polica, leading up to our US tour and debut in November, straight after that Paris gig!
