MATTHEW SHLOMOWITZ and his music performed in Cracow!

 

TIME: November 23, 18:00

PLACE: Concert Hall of the Music Academy in Cracow

Here I present a concert concept named CONTEXT: POPULAR!

It’s made up by four members of Spółdzielnia Muzyczna Contemporary Ensemble – Martyna Zakrzewska, Bartosz Sałdan, Michał Lazar and myself. Here is a short program note:

The spine of this program is a phenomenon of employing and adapting styles, contents, and instruments, widely recognized as belonging to popular genres, into classical contemporary music. Interesting is the role and identity of the performers in search for reasonable balance of distinctive qualities.

Jenny’s soul. Or Dirk’s?

It was in March 2016 when Piotr Peszat and me have met for the first time to talk over a certain idea. An idea of a brand new work for one percussionist with multi media. To keep a little bit of secret, until the time comes to reveal more, I will not expatiate this story too much at the moment.

Jenny's soul. Or Dirk's?

Nevertheless, Jenny’s soul. Or Dirk’s? is written for percussion, audio playback and video. The concept and material have been developed together in the process of work-in-progress, by Piotr – composer and me – performer.

The work calls for a quite extensive technology and drum playing technique, based on some hand-drumming, first adapted by Georges Aperghis in his works in 70’s and 80′, and then developed by myself.

Jenny's soul. Or Dirk's? - drum material

Jenny was premiered recently, on November 20., at the 24. Audio Art Festival in Cracow, Poland. It was during the monographic concert of Piotr Peszat’s music presenting six works from the cycle Erwachsenen-Szene. [POST LINK]

It is my pleasure to present you a concert recording of a mentioned performance of Jenny’s soul. Or Dirk’s?

Enjoy!
