Ways of doing things – Lecture by composer Nicolas Tzortzis

“Robert Fripp, guitarist and basic member of the progressive rock band King Crismon, once said that his band was not that much a band than “a way of doing things”, meaning that, even if the musicians have changed over the years, what makes King Crimson what it is, is a specific approach to music making, that has remained unchanged throughout the decades.
In my lecture, I will talk about some of my latest works, who almost all of them combine music with other media (theatre, electronics, video), and about the different approach that every work needs, with all the constraints and the liberties that come with it. These works are very different from each other, with diverse starting points and considerations, that demand each time another approach and that the composer reinvents himself, broadens his aesthetics and tries to find the necessary tools that will better serve the realisation of his idea.”
