In six words, who is Korey Daniel

Daniel Agi flutes "explicitly orally"

Date: Jan 23, 2012

Concert moved to the Church of Reconciliation

Breath, mouth and the like are the most fascinating, since they are most directly physical instruments for sound production. The flutist Daniel Agi, who comes from Syria and trained in Cologne and Freiburg, has mastered pretty much all of these “mouthparts” up to beatboxing, the “mouth drums”. In his concert program with the title "expressly oral" as part of the special series on Sunday, January 29th, 6 pm, the black cock locker is also used, a small metal pipe with a thin tube and funnel, with which hunters the rustling plumage of the Imitate black grouse. Daniel Agi's solo program includes compositions by Heinz Holliger, Edgar Varèse, André Jolivet, Robin Hoffmann, Moritz Eggert, among others. There are flute pieces in which he has to sing at the same time, and those in which there is no normal flute tone. The flute sound artist is always on the lookout for new techniques, often in close contact with the composer, and always finds new flute repertoire with all his fluting, whistling and oral possibilities and loves - in the words of the composer Moritz Eggert - “Music invented straight from head to mouth ”.

At the beginning of the concert, which takes place in the Reconciliation Church because of the construction work in the Little Church, present the young participants in an improvisation workshop with Daniel Agi Paul Jackson's “Paper Music”.

Daniel Agi (b. 1979) was a member of the Duisburg Philharmonic and went on concert tours to Korea, China, Kuwait, Portugal and Lithuania. The Ensemble Modern Akademie scholarship holder has given numerous world premieres in solo concerts, as well as with his ensemble chronophonie and the Dutch Insomnio Ensemble. He also cultivates the classical repertoire in the Trio Contrejour, with pianists and in chamber music ensembles as well as in orchestras such as the Sinfonietta Köln.
