BOX: Baroque remix manifesto
(Baroque Orchestration X) is an artist collective exploring the full potential of early music instruments today, putting them in unorthodox settings and bringing them to a different audience.
Ever heard of theorbo, triple harp, positive organ, viola da gamba or cornetto? And even if you did, surely in this way you didn’t! Join the ride for an adventurous clash of cultures and sounds: PJ Harvey, Radiohead, Dez Mona and Monteverdi in an entirely new baroque instrumental language…
