# Acoustic Electronica
Daniel Brandt, Jon Brauer, and Paul Frick are classically-trained musicians from Berlin who have become known around the world for their groundbreaking experiments in both electronic and acoustic music. They came to prominence as a trio, showcasing their minimalist techno-influenced compositions, primarily in a club context. Their debut album, 2010’s You Make Me Real, was an intriguing marriage of traditional musicianship and 21st-century electronic and industrial aesthetics. Using piano, glockenspiel, drums, and electronica, they fashioned music that combined a dancefloor feel with a sense of organic, human musical interaction. The BBC has described their music as ‘concert hall compositions for the clubbing generation.’
Brandt Brauer Frick’s subsequent expansion into a 10-piece live performance ensemble was a logical next step. The ensemble, which features piano, harp, trombone, tuba, violin, cello, harp, three percussionists, and a Moog synthesiser, brings their music to the stage almost entirely analogously and acoustically. The ensemble has performed both at major music festivals such as Glasonbury and Coachella, but also in classical concert halls like Konzerthaus in Vienna, Lincoln Center in New York, and the Southbank Centre in London. In addition, they continue to perform as a trio in techno clubs around the world.
In blurring the boundaries between genres and bringing together elements of the traditional and the experimental, Brandt Brauer Frick encapsualte a philospohy shared by Strings of Autumn: it is entirely fitting that they should be part of the festival’s 2020 line-up.
DOX is an outstanding example of contemporary architecture. This internationally recognized project involving the transformation of an old factory into a multi-functional space is the work of architect Ivan Kroupa. In 2008, DOX was nominated for the EU Prize for Contemporary Architecture, the Mies van der Rohe Award. The prestigious Phaidon Atlas of 21st Century World Architecture includes it among the best 1000 architectural projects of the last ten years. Over 3000 m2 of exhibition space are supplemented by a café, a bookshop, and a design shop.
In 2018, DOX was expanded to include a state-of-the-art multipurpose hall called DOX+, which was designed by the architectural studio Petr Hájek Architekti. DOX+ is primarily used for staged performance – theatre, dance, music, and film. It has become an important venue on the Prague concert scene, in particular for fans of contemporary music.
