ARS MODERNA | Spółdzielnia Muzyczna

Nowy cykl koncertów ARS MODERNA zabierze Państwa w podróż do nie tak znowu odległej przeszłości, która jednak w dalszym ciągu nie wybrzmiała na rodzimych scenach muzycznych dość szeroko i głośno. W szeregu przekrojowych programów Spółdzielnia Muzyczna contemporary ensemble zaprezentuje najważniejsze i najciekawsze – a przy tym wykonywane w Polsce rzadko, lub wcale – utwory klasyków muzyki XX i XXI wieku: pierwsze dwa wieczory w cyklu to Franco Donatoni i Salvatore Sciarrino (Włochy), Pierre Boulez, Gerard Grisey i Georges Aperghis (Francja) oraz Morton Feldman i George Crumb (Stany Zjednoczone), a także Paweł Szymański. W ramach każdego z koncertów zapraszamy do wysłuchania moderacji ze strony Mateusza Ciupki, która przybliżając historię i konteksty muzyki najnowszej, pozwoli Państwu tym pełniej docenić bogactwo i różnorodność muzyki ostatnich dekad.

Projekt jest współfinansowany ze środków miasta Krakowa.

CARPATHIAN NEW WAVE

Carpathian New Wave, vol.1 / ALEKSANDER WNUK
workshop + performance

Carpathian New Wave

FEBRUARY 15-16, Presov, Slovakia

PLAN:
FEBRUARY 15:
– Workshop #1 / 18-21 [LINK]
FEBRUARY 16:
– Workshop #2 / 11:30-13:30
– Workshop #3 / 17:30-18:30
– Performance / 20 [LINK]

Program for the performance:
– Georges Aperghis Graffitis for solo percussionist (1980)
– Georges Aperghis Zig-Bang New Wave Version for a group of hanging out people (2019)
– Francois Sarhan Situation 7: Imagination for two performers (2015), with Elia Moretti
– Rolf Wallin Scratch for amplified Balloon (1995)

CARPATHIAN NEW WAVE is a series of sound workshops and performances of contemporary artists from the Carpathian region. The first artist will be Aleksander Wnuk, a polish percussion player who is developing his specific research on the performativity of sound and body as a performer / musician.

The workshop and the performance are focused on the distinctive style of organizing the quasi-theatrical aspects of instrumental performance by the musical parameters. It is a sensibility and spirit of the individual performer, and his personality, that drive the dramaturgy and ambience, yet it is all within space of the composition that is pre-determined by the composer. The greatest composer of this language is Georges Aperghis.

The workshop will be divided in two parts:
1. Introduction on the idea of this language of performativity (15.02)
2. Arranging the piece (15-16.02)

The piece shall be a small choice of short texts from Aperghis’ book Zig-Bang. Texts will be translated into music and arranged into the quasi-theatrical situation. The worksop will need the amount of people interested in cooperating in this style.
However, it will be necessary to have musical instruments, so local musicians are welcome, but definitely not only (the instrument can be anything). The texts would be sent prior the workshop date to those who are interested, in order to make them familiar with the situation. The workshop will be focused on the plurality of personal approaches and imaginations of the participants.
The exact quasi-theatrical situations will be arranged on spot, yet the general idea, including solo performer, will already be pre-determined. The result will become the part of the performance on the February 16th. Or it will become the stage arrangement of the whole evening show, within which the solo pieces and some small solo moments will occur.

In order to participate to the workshop is necessary to attend to the three parts. Participation is free, reservation is necessary.
To reserve your participation, or ask any further information, please write to the address elia.moretti@yahoo.it

Produced by Matróna and Združenie Wave.
Carpathian New Wave is supported using public funding by Slovak Arts Council.

Music Olomouc 2018

IMG_0136a

I hereby invite to my solo recital at MusicOlomouc, contemporary music festival in Olomouc, Czech Republic.
There, I will perform an over 70 minutes program which will consist of quite physical works, mostly performed in Czech Republic for the first time. And with special focus on Piotr Peszat’s Jenny’ Soul. Or Dirk’s?, which was created back in 2016 in our common, work-in-progress, composition process.
One of the premieres will be a World Premiere of a crazy noise work by Cory Bracken (NY, USA), composed for my, and comissioned by the festival. A work for an insane set of stuff consisting of a door spring mounted on a snare drum, various sliders and thimbers, combs, bows, varied vibrators, milk frotters, chains and contact mics.
Moreover, it will be my own first festival performance of the solo percussion piece by Michel van der Aa which, next to Cory’s work, is a new addition to my repertoir.
I hope that those of you who will attend the festival, will enjoy my personal interpretations of Aperghis, Billone and Sarhan as well.
Hope to meet you there!

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.
