The StreetNoise Orchestra cordially invites all of Innsbruck from July 6th - 9th to an extended weekend filled with music, laughter, dance and partying, in which 8 street bands and over 200 musicians from all over Europe will take part.
The name Strafiato not only expresses the tremendous energy of this brass music event, but also pays homage to the Italian "bande aperte" scene who helped birth our band and who are still a source of inspiration for us today. We stand in solidarity with their socio-political commitment, to show how art and democracy reinforce each other and can be made tangible for everyone in the public space.
Street music culture is a creative and innovative art in which the city is reinterpreted as public space. Here in Innsbruck, Austria where the city is symbolically and structurally divided between tourist space and local haunts, we are trying to set into motion new interpretations of the urban space. We reject the urbanization of the 20th century that prioritizes economic development and profit seeking over the vibrancy of human life. Our musical performances encourage communication between interested fellow citizens, creative artists, tourists and the various people responsible for the city administration.
