Szczecin | II MUSIC.DESIGN.FORM Festival 2019


'Audioluminescence' became the slogan of the second edition of the MUSIC.DESIGN.FORM Festival which retuns to the Szczecin Philharmonic on 13-15 September 2019.

Sound and light will be treated literally as an artistic material, and metaphorically as a direction of the festival activities. To address this topic, the organisers invited artists, activists and animators to use music, image and architecture in a non-standard way. Once again, the MDF Festival will create a unique opportunity to experience art with different senses. Being led by sound and light, the participants will get to to unexpected corners of the building and will be surprised by the unusual visualizations in the white Lobby. The facade of the Philharmonic will also shine again.

We can expect concerts by Polish and foreign stars, premiere performances prepared for the festival, as well as exhibitions, workshops and educational meetings. The first day of the Festival will feature a presentation of several projects of the group of Polish composers and performers 'panGenerator', which combines bits and photons in the context of new media art. On 14 September, composer and conductor Michał Janocha will present his multimedia spectacle I hear you are watching. The performance is an artistic and scientific expedition, thanks to which the youngest listeners will discover that modern technologies can  "change" the sound of instruments into light. Later that day at the Philharmonic white hall, there will be a Szczecin premiere of the full performance of the latest project of the Kwadrofonik ensemble Urlicht – variations based on the chorale and its counterpoint, which resound separately or enter into a dialogue with each other.
