The Polish Music Information Centre organises the first RE:NEW MUSIC workshop and open rehearsal in Poland. The workshop will take place on Thursday, 17th September 2009, at 2 pm in the State Music Schools No. 1 in Warsaw (22d, Miodowa St., 'Mala Miodowa'). It will be open to the public and free of charge.
The workshop, conducted by Gilles Gobert, is entitled Some thoughts about contemporary notation, especially in electronic music and it will “combine” theory with practice. The composer’s lecture about new notation - when and why he uses it in his works, what its possibilities and what the limitations of the conventional notation are – will be combined with a presentation of the modes of performing chosen "signs" and an invitation to the realisation of selected fragments of scores by learners. The workshop is addressed to young composers and performers.
The open rehearsal of the Pièce pour piano, percussions et électronique (the composition selected from the RE:NEW MUSIC by KWARTLUDIUM+) will be held by the composer on Friday, 18th September 2009, at 9 am in the Chamber Music Hall of Warsaw Philharmonic.
