Part of the constantly adventurous Wandelweiser collective – home to the likes of Michael Pisaro, Radu Malfatti and Jurg Frey – German-based Eva-Maria Houben creates vast, incorporeal forms from almost nothing – music that lingers long after the last note has dissipated. Both carefully nuanced and obsessively singular – her evocative solo piano works have a warmth and beauty to them that stands out beyond the occasionally bare and dry work of her contemporaries. In the words of Ben Harper, “this is living, messy, human music.” Join us a for a relaxed Sunday afternoon piano concert at this years’ Counterflows.

Eva-Maria Houben: monodie I (2018) – for counterflows, first performance
