The third premiere as part of the series “Contemporary chamber miniature in the times of pandemic. First performances” will take place on 20 August 2020 at 12.00 p.m. on the Academy of Music in Poznań's website, Facebook profile and YouTube channel. We will hear Splashing Sounds by Barbara Kaszuba.
As Barbara Kaszuba points out, "The composition is intended for the Roland FR X7 digital accordion with electronics. The musical material consists of samples recorded by Łukasz Nowakowski, then electronically transformed by the composer. The work was inspired by the composer's audiovisual impressions taken from the TV show Celebrity Splash, which took place at the Termy Maltańskie swimming pool in Poznań in 2015 – the sounds of a body hitting the water, cascades of water rising and falling, clearly visible circles on water surface. Splashing sounds is an open form; the performance is based on a different variant each time. Anna Kokocińska prepared a movement interpretation of the composition as a choreographic premiere of the piece. "
