Saturday 18th and Saturday 25th November 2017 – 10:00 to 17:00

2 days of networking events and workshops, to meet fellow composers and musicians and discuss about contemporary techniques and innovations.

 

ABOUT THE EVENT

Through the workshop’s framework participants will have the opportunity to share, discover and discuss some of the most important 20th and 21st century contemporary techniques.

During this intensive workshop & networking event we will take a look at how to expand and integrate the knowledge of tonal music with the main compositional techniques used by twentieth century composers and musicians; we will get ideas on how to investigate and contextualise the 20th-century music scores; we will see at examples on how to deconstruct compositional systems to associate them into new combinations and get a different perspective of the aforesaid procedures.

With the pianist in residence we will see those concepts applied in real situations through examples taken from various scores and open discussions.

This workshop is highly interactive and participants may bring their own works, and share solutions and systems they’ve found while working on past compositions or while studying contemporary scores.

A piano concert will take place at the end of each day and we want to include 6 new works selected through a Call for Scores. Please visit this page to submit your work and get the chance to have your work selected and performed.

The program of the concert (to be announced soon) will include works by: Ligeti, Berio, Lachenmann, Adams, Debussy, Scriabin
