Ólafur Arnalds: Ekki Hugsa 360°

Music / 360° Film / Germany, Iceland

Let go, lose control, but gain creativity: That is the motto of the world premiere of Ólafur Arnalds' commission piece Ekki Hugsa 360° for this year's Reeperbahn Festival. It is not a musical live performance, but the Islandic multi-instrumentalist will act as host and, together with his video producer Torsten Posselt, present on every festival day last year's album re:member in a new form.

On the album, he created harmonic cascades with his Stratus Piano, developed over the course of two years. This spliced instrument from his own and two more pianos generates different notes for each note Arnalds plays, resulting in unexpected harmonies and melodic sequences. It's easy to get lost in these enveloping sounds, which is why the presentation at the Planetarium will be an immersive experience, allowing the audience to forget everything around them and dive into the deep blue atmosphere of pure interpretation. "Ekki hugsa" is Icelandic for "not thinking"—and this audiovisual experience will definitely make you forget to think.

In order to be able to visit this event as part of the Reeperbahn Festival, a wristband for the Reeperbahn Festival valid for the selected day as well as a seat ticket for the Hamburg Planetarium is required. This can be collected by exchanging the ticket for a wristband at the Ticket Desk on the Heiligengeistfeld. (Subject to availability.)

Opening hours Ticket Desk:
Wednesday - Friday: 09:00-24:00
Saturday: 10:00-24:00
