Looks pretty wild!

It was hard for me to tell: is this the "modern classical" kind of electronic music (Varèse, Stockhausen, Boulez, etc.) or "electro" dance music?

I discovered at lunch time that I missed a concert of the minimalist composer Steve Reich's music in Geneva, yesterday. Gutting...

the music in first parts (Alhambra's concerts) is sometimes called just "new music". never mind the appellation - it can vary, it's something unusual and thus I like it . The second parts in Zoo might be also suitable for dancing .
I bought tickets yesterday in Sounds (8 avenue du Mail, Geneve). It's a small pretty music store, lots of LPs, CDs. I didn't have time to check the stuff thoroughly, but it looked very promising. And it's open till 7pm. We could meet before the concerts if you or anybody else want to go too.

About Reich, I am sorry, I would love to be at the concert! Please remember me and send me a PM if you find this kind of concert in the future..

I was there and it was amazing! Pieces presented in Alhambra were created and performed as multichannel spatial "music". Technical equipment of Alhambra was on very high level so the effect of spatial reproduction was enormous. I will not comment particular interprets since this would be subjective. In general I can say that concerts in Alhambra offered unique experience in terms of featured artists as well as quality of sound reproduction. If you like experimental electronic music, don't miss Presences Electroniques Geneve next year!
