Perspectives of Sound and Composition
On the 13th and 14th of June 2008 the institute for composition and electro-acoustics of the university for music and performing arts Vienna will present current activities and initiatives of teaching and research in a two-day presentation event. Selected works of compositions students will be performed, the sound engineers will demonstrate recordings through a special advanced multi-channel loudspeaker array of the company Geithain as well as an arwarded film music work and works for life movie orchestra. Also the results of an international composition workshop in collaboration with teachers and students from Vienna and Budapest. Finally the new "center for innovative music technology" (ZiMT) will be founded in the frame of the presentation event.
Venue: Anton-von-Webernplatz 1, Haydn-Saal, Mendelssohn-Saal
In two semesters the artistic and scientific project, a collaboration between the "institute for composition and electroacoustics" of the music universtity, Vienna, and the Liszt Ferenc Academy, Budapest, is aimed to contriubute in an innovative way to the performance of electronic music.
Under the guidance of Andrea Szigetvári (Budapest) und Johannes Kretz (Vienna) the students from both universities develop tools, which allow the interactive performance of electronic sounds through senseful body gestures.
Main target is the development of new virtual music instruments, which use various kinds of hardware: an advanced laser sensor system, which detects the touching of laser beams, or other human interface devices like data gloves, which were originally designed for computer games.
These interfaces require a new kind of artistry between composition and interpretation, where the borders between instrument design, interpretation and composition are highly transitional.
The results of the workshop will be presented on Saturday, 14th of June 2008 in Vienna (Fanny-Hensel-Mendelssohn-Hall of the music university in Vienna) and in Budapest in Mucsarnok, in two concerts involving actors, musicians and the composers themselves.
The workshop was made possible through a generous grant of "Aktion Österreich Ungarn".
