Disquiet TV launches

The 8th November sees the official launch of Disquiet TV, a new virtual auditorium for contemporary music established in conjunction with Michel van der Aa’s multimedia label Disquiet. As well as offering live concerts streams, Disquiet TV brings its audience uniquely close to the music through multiple video feeds, live chat with performers and other audience members, and even camera direction, all within a single, easy-to-use onscreen interface.

The Disquiet TV service will be launched with the Amsterdam Sinfonietta’s Van der Aa portrait concert, streamed live from the Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ, Amsterdam and featuring four Van der Aa works – Imprint for Baroque orchestra (2005), Memo, for solo violin and tape (2003), and Oog for solo cello and soudtrack (1995).

Concerts on Disquiet TV are free, but pre-booking is necessary. To reserve your virtual seat for the concert, and to take advantage of Disquiet TV’s interactive features, please visit the Disquiet TV site.

about

Michel van der Aa (Netherlands, 1970) is a truly multidisciplinary figure in contemporary music. A unique voice, he combines composition with film and stage direction, and script writing. Classical instruments, voices, electronic sound, actors, theatre and video are all seamless extensions of his musical vocabulary.
