In the »ePhil« concert series, electronic music comes from clubs to the concert hall. And in the process, the physical rush of the dancefloor turns into a contemplative experience in the auditorium with its rows of seats. »ePhil« offers a wide spectrum of contemporary electronic music, ranging from ambient, drone, minimalism and New Music to noise and techno. After several years in the KörberForum and then in the Resonanzraum, the series has had its home at the Elbphilharmonie since the 2021/22 season.
ByteFM's »Elbphilharmonie Mixtape« highlights the »ePhil« series on 8 November:
The wide stylistic range of »ePhil« is shown by the above playlist, starting with the reduced, pulsating techno of Helena Hauff's new track »Touching Plastic«. The Hamburg musician played a set without an audience at the Elbphilharmonie when the corona pandemic was at its peak in 2020, and you can watch the video here. We also hear music by Nils Frahm, who appeared in the Elbphilharmonie at this year's edition of »ePhil«. The rest of the programme is made up of music by a whole number of artists who will be coming to the Elbphilharmonie in 2023. It's well worth listening to! And it's worth going to the concerts too: a few tickets are still available.
