“Strange News is an awe-inspiring… compassionate and totally involving creation… a War Requiem for the modern day, one which held the audience stunned – until the standing ovation at the end.” - The Birmingham Post

          Danish composer Simon Steen-Andersen and Norwegian percussion sensation Håkon Stene joined Aventa and Ear Heart Music for the North American premiere of Simon’s "Black Box Music". This 2012 work could be said to be a deconstruction of conducting and puppet theater, as well as an exploration and exploitation of the audio/visual relations inherent in conducting and staging.
