In 2022, the new format @the_same_time was created in Moers, in which musicians play on two stages at the same time and with each other, but the audience only hears what they see live. A few hours later, the compilation of both parts of the concert can be experienced as a whole in the virtual reality moerslandVR. Lukas Ligeti composed the piece "en même temps" especially for this format, which he will work on with two quartets from Benjamin Duboc’s 21-strong Parisian ensemble Icosikaihenagone. In real rain with virtual sunshine – dreamed up in colour in stereo from time.

With a lineup of diverse instruments and an unconventional approach to composition and improvisation, the 21-piece Ensemble Icosikaihenagone, led by French composer and bassist Benjamin Duboc, creates a captivating soundscape. The musicians draw inspiration from different eras and styles - from traditional folk melodies to modern classical and experimental sounds. Together, they weave a tapestry of sound that is both intricate and otherworldly, transporting listeners to new musical dimensions.
