The National Forum of Music invites you to the Musica Polonica Nova 2020 Festival, which will take place online on 14-17 May. The Festival's artistic director is Paweł Hendrich.
The programme of the festival refers to the reality that surrounds us – it redefines what music is and sets new ways of creativity. The next edition will take place with the motto ‘daCamera’. How can it be understood?
Less Means More – this is the title of one of the festival concerts, and the organisers encourage you to perceive chamber music this way. Sometimes it is worth focusing your attention on the details in which – like in the image formed in the lens – musical beauty is emphasized. Paweł Hendrich will present his own selection of the most interesting new chamber works available on SoundCloud and Mateusz Ryczek will discuss with his guests issues such as the origins of music, and the role of voice, instruments and recorded sounds in electronic music.
This year's edition focuses on a strong presence of attractive visual layers in the works being performed. The programme will feature recordings of works written in the "Composing Commissions" programme run by the Institute of Music and Dance: Fables of Robots – co-opera by Cezary Duchnowski and Paweł Hendrich, Sursounds by Marcin Stańczyk, and MiniOpera by Katarzyna Dziewiątkowska, Joanna Woźna, Mateusz Rycz and Tomasz Skweres. Music will be combined with video art, performance art and intermedia. The image used during the concert changes the perception of sound and makes it possible to perceive the presented works in a wider context. Hear more while watching? It is worth finding out that it is so!
