I Ching recording online!

This one has been in my archives for four years already. Finally I feel like sharing it.

I hope you will enjoy this piece of music and my interpretation – piece of work I did back in Copenhagen in 2014 as a Soloist Postgraduate student of the Royal Danish Academy of Music. All that does not really matter. What matter is that it’s:

Per Nørgård – I Ching, mvt. 4 – Towards Completion, Fire over Water.

One of the most wonderful works for percussion solo, written back in 1982 for my main teacher Gert Mortensen with his great contribution to the score and instrumentation, and of course to the performing practice of such music.

No more words, eventhough the ideas behind the piece are amazing and it’s exciting to explore them.
Best 🙂

Recorded at the Concert Hall of the Royal Danish Academy of Music, Copenhagen 2014

To pierwszy pełnometrażowy film włoski z 1911 roku będący luźną adaptacją “Boskiej Komedii”. Warstwa wizualna filmu nawiązuje do ilustracji Gustave Doré. Przez wielu historyków kinematografii L’inferno uważane jest za najlepszą ekranizację poematu Dantego.

Performances at 3rd Tehran Contemporary Music Festival

tcmf

It is my great pleasure to share the news about my participation in the 3rd Tehran Contemporary Music Festival, which will take place in the capital of Iran, in the period of April 21-27.
[FESTIVAL WEBSITE]

Moreover, it is my honour to give the Iranian first performances of all the performed works.

My participation in the festival includes two concerts.
The first is more a standard percussion concert including classics of the repertoir for multipercussion and vibraphone, and a work by Iranian composer, which looks like this:

 

the sky 2. Mov

The second concert is an instrumental performance based on my neverending search for the personal performativity in music including, in short, own arrangements of Aperghis’ texts Zig-Bang and works with limited or no instruments.

Dwa ekscentryczne performansy muzyczne Aperghisa ze zbioru jego tekstów do spektakli muzycznych Zig-Bang, we własnej aranżacji. Dalej, krótka historyjka nieskomplikowanej relacji pomiędzy człowiekiem a Hi-hatem, pióra Shlomowitza. Ponadto dwie kompozycje klasyczne w repertuarze współczesnego perkusisty, czyli Rebonds Xenakisa na multipercussion i wirtuozowski Loops Hurela na wibrafon.
