Electric Renaissance, the art and music-festival as an emancipated part of the Händel-Festival in Halle, contains of exhibitions on different locations, actions in the urban room, artistic interventions on the event-locations of the actual Händel-Festival and a Festivalclub with musical events at night. The name “Festival within the Festival” hereby describes the approach and distance in the discussion with G.F. Händel. Theme is the contemporary dialogue with the work of the baroque artist. He gives the basis to think about changes in continuity of the construction of an event, to reflect about mechanism of production and use as well as about the part of the technique of actually putting-in-scene, projecting and transferring. Theme of this years “Electric Renaissance” is the discussion of the picture, as which the historical personality Händel is found nowadays, its meaning, development and value in our time. The title of the Festival 2006 – “Sound of the Icon” – formulates the question about the matters of the phenomenon Händel and the mechanisms of forms of representation and production, which can be seen in refocusing traditional Festivals and their matters of analysis.

Theme “Sound of the Icon”
Händel was popular – so popular that his music survived his life time and last but not least, gave the matrix for many following composers. Händel’s music therefore was of value. Following generations had reason and occasion to combine more with the music as a pattern of composition and acoustic experiences. The figure Händel as a composer of music, known all over the world, was risen up to an icon. But which value has this icon and for whom? What does the Händel-Festival carry in creating meaning and value regarding this icon? Which icons are being installed and for what reason by whom and what kind of mechanisms are used for that “instalment”? The contact with an icon moves a vibe in the artist as well as in the audience. This vibe, the sound and the movement resulting out of this, are goals of this years theme.

Announcement
For participating in this announcement, artists are called to present musical, sculptural, pictorial, as well as medial contributions regarding this year’s theme “Sound of the Icon”. These works will create one main focus of the Festivalclub.
