Kirsten Reese, Tarek Atoui, Wieland Hoban
Fri 27 July 2018, 10.00 – 14.00
10:00 Lecture Kirsten Reese:
Beyond aura – narratives of memory and appropriation
11:30 Lecture Tarek Atoui
As artist composer navigating between visual arts and music, Tarek Atoui will present his understanding of the act of composition today. He will take examples from his project WITHIN to show how he composes with research, education, performance and production as much as he does with people, instruments, sounds and situations.
13:00 Lecture Wieland Hoban:
Working from the inside: Parametric approaches to composition
With such a strong focus on discursive and conceptual elements in New Music today, it is easy to lose sight of questions relating to the details of instruments and their workings. While pure instrumental music seems outdated to many in the younger generation, working with and potentially recombining the separate parameters that characterize each instrument and its techniques can open up sonic and performative possibilities that keep alive the potential for highly individual and contemporary musical formulations.
