The erotic saturation of popular music and culture as well as licentious experiments in film, theatre, and the visual arts abolished all sexual taboos in the public domain in the 20th century. Compared with other arts, however, the New Music scene has tackled sexuality with far less frequency, either from the political or private point of view.
The Série Rose concert sheds light on this aspect of New Music, one that is usually in the shadow of its abstract intellectual form. Being part of a larger project consisting of works directly relating to sex, love, pornography, and feminism, it invites one to listen to New Music beyond its aesthetic and technical discourse, in order to discover what the avant-garde might suppress and repress.
