Virtual Composing Exchange: David Six feat. Saied Silbak

  • Wed 13 May 2020

Join us for a unique virtual composing collaboration between Austrian composer and pianist David Six and UK-based Palestinian oud player Saied Silbak.

Let them take you on a digital journey exploring musical exchange first-hand. During their online project the artists critically reflect on the situation of refugees in Europe, seemingly forgotten during the Covid-19 pandemic. Follow them transforming their thoughts into an empathic composition and performance.
The virtual project offers us a glimpse into their creative working process, and how to bring a musical composition to life.

Watch this creative collaboration celebrating cultural exchange and cross-border composition!

As an outstanding composer and pianist balancing between the paths of classical music and jazz, David Six spans an arc between these two musical worlds in his own intriguing and original fashion. These blurred lines of genre and style add a distinctive flair to his music. As a soloist and member of the ensemble Stargaze, Six has collaborated with many renowned artists across Europe.

Saied Silbak is a Palestinian oud player based in UK. Silbak composes music for solo oud as well as traditional Arabic and various contemporary ensembles. His music has been performed around the world. In recent years he has worked with many artists on interdisciplinary projects and has been involved in educational and community works developing a politically and socially engaged practice.
