Ivan Vukosavljević arms Ensemble Klang with an array of deconstructed electric guitars in The Burning, a 45 minute “ominous, majestic drone [that] starts as a smouldering glow, but gradually develops into a hellish forest inferno.” The symbolism of the burning is multiple but singular, both destructive and transformative, it is both a metaphor for continuation and an ending. It is the echo of the burning past and burning of the past.

Based in The Netherlands, Serbian composer Ivan Vukosavljević creates work that explores extreme amplification, hybrid instruments, specially designed playing techniques, and also improvisation.
