"New Sounds" Original Vlog on Avant-Garde Performance Techniques

Nowe brzmienia

Original vlog for composers and performers of contemporary music "Nowe Brzmienia" ["New Sounds"] @ModernViola consists of seven full presentations with discussions and examples of new performance techniques of contemporary classical music presented on the viola and relevant to the whole group of string instruments.

The aim of the vlog is to supplement the practical knowledge of the adepts of musical art, which so far required personal consultations between composers and performers. The original vlog was prepared by Aleksandra Demowska-Madejska, doctor of musical arts, member of the Hashtag Ensemble.

Each presentation/lecture is divided into two parts: addressed to composers and to performers (violinists, violists and cellists). It contains a review of the most up-to-date music notation types and performace techniques of the 21st-century music. The examples come from works by Polish composers, including artists of the young generation.

The project is carried out as part of the "Culture on the network" scholarship programme of the Minister of Culture and National Heritage.

New lectures will be posted every Thursday from 17 September to 29 October 2020 on the YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/aleksandrademowskamadejska
