The next [sound] Spectrum International New Music Symposium, organised by the Feliks Nowowiejski Academy of Music in Bydgoszcz, will take place on 22-23 October 2020. The programme includes lectures, workshops and a composers' panel. All scheduled events can be followed on the Facebook profile and YouTube channel.
[sound] Spectrum is a symposium devoted to broadly understood contemporary music, the aim of which is to present its vast context. The event is part of the RID Regional Initiative of Excellence project, run by the Academy of Music in Bydgoszcz.
World-famous composers Hanna Kulenty and Aleksander Nowak will give lectures about their cretive process and latest compositions. Workshops with violist and composer Rafał Zalech will take place at the Academy of Music. Zalech will present its own hybrid instrument, which reads the finger positions of a musician playing a string instrument in 5000 points (2.5 octaves with a latency below 5ms) while maintaining all sonic qualities and playing comfort.
This year's [sound] Spectrum will be crowned with a panel discussion attended by Hanna Kulenty, Aleksander Nowak, Rafał Zapała, Sławek Wojciechowski, Wojtek Błażejczyk, Krzysztof Kwiatkowski, Mikołaj Pałosz, Adam Kośmieja and Anna Kwiatkowska. The discussion will be moderated by Ewa Szczecińska (Polish Radio Channel 2). In addition, we will watch a recording of the September concert "Sci-fi / retro" from the Rozmaitości Theatre in Warsaw, presenting works for piano trio and film screenings with live music devoted to fantasies about other planets made over a hundred years ago.
