Sustain-Delay – Medieval [+] Ambient | Welleda Muller, Robert Farrugia, Anti-

25 April | 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

As part of MSA x ACM Performing Arts Programme 2024 – Sustain-Delay series of music events

Sustain-Delay – Medieval [+] Ambient | Welleda Muller, Robert Farrugia, Anti-

The music of medieval Europe – of the vielles in monasteries and the plucked lyres – passed down through centuries, now lies in the here and now of people experimenting with those pieces of time preserved.

On 25 April, the Malta Society of Arts welcomes the soundworld of French musician, soprano and medieval researcher Welleda Muller falling into the lush and expansive ambient music of Robert Farrugia.

The atmosphere will be further set by Anti- (Fabio D’Amato), through a topical-but-surprising DJ set mixing these sounds with those beyond.

Anyone wearing a full medieval suit of armour including helmet and trusty steed will be given a discount.

This event forms part of the Malta Society of Arts’ 2024 Performing Arts Programme which is being supported by Arts Council Malta. This event is also supported by French Embassy in Malta and Alliance Française.

[ About Sustain – Delay ]

Welcome to a year-long programme of adventurous music at the Malta Society of Arts, mixing electronic music with sounds further afield.

Bringing together musicians from near and far, in 2024, Sustain-Delay presents a year-long programme of acts experimenting with sound: from organic materials to the rhythmic sway of drum machines; mediaeval instruments to ethereal ambient music. Join us as we fill Palazzo De La Salle in Valletta with music previously unexplored by the Malta Society of Arts.

This project forms part of the Malta Society of Arts’ Performing Arts Programme 2024 and is supported by Arts Council Malta.

Kurt Buttigieg – Biography

Kurt Buttigieg is an “occasional artist and unwavering tinkerer”, with a perpetual organisational streak.

He read for a Master’s degree in Sound Art from the University of Barcelona and previously worked at the museum of the European Parliament in Brussels as curator for temporary and permanent exhibitions, and also planned spin-off museums in other EU capitals.

He organised numerous concerts, workshops and exhibitions in Malta and Belgium, as well as founding a small label called Complex Holiday documenting “inside-out ambient and sound art tomfoolery”. He is also a writer for several specialised magazines, including The Wire and New Noise.

As an artist and musician he released several works over that past twenty years, under his and other names, and created Malta’s first dedicated sound art installation in 1999.

A strong believer in community, Kurt is a committee member of the Banda Immakulata Kunċizzjoni (Ħamrun), Ħsus, Arsha Our and is active in other social, cultural and environmental projects.
