Music and Research – Lecture by Daniel Teruggi

Μουσική και Έρευνα – Διάλεξη του Daniel Teruggi

Το Εργαστήριο Σύγχρονης Μουσικής (ΕΣΜ) σε συνεργασία με το Εργαστήριο Τεχνολογιών του Ήχου και της Μουσικής (ΕΤΗΜ), διοργανώνει μια διάλεξη του Daniel Teruggi. Ο Daniel Teruggi υπήρξε διευθυντής (1997-2007) του ιστορικού ινστιτούτου ηλεκτρονικής μουσικής Groupe de Recherches Musicales (GRM) που ιδρύθηκε το 1958 από τον Pierre Schaeffer. H σχέση του με το GRM ξεκινάει το 1980, όπου και προτοεισήλθε στο χώρο και παρακολούθησε από εκεί στενά την εξέλιξη της τεχνολογίας τις αλλαγές που αυτή επέφερε στη στη μουσική. Στην παρουσίαση του, θα αναφερθεί το GRM και τις μουσικές ιδέες που το περιέβαλαν και θα παρουσιάσει την μουσική του, τόσο ακουστική όσο και ηλεκτροακουστική. Κατά τη διάρκεια της καριέρας του, διατήρησε στενή σχέση ανάμεσα στη σύνθεση και την έρευνα καθώς αυτοί οι δύο τομείς αλληλοτροφοδοτούνται με τις πλούσιες δυνατότητες της τεχνολογίας και τις πάντα πρωτότυπες προσεγγίσεις των μουσικών.

Who is writing — “it” or “me”? / Madnesses and Methods by Joachim Heintz

[ακολουθεί ελληνικό κείμενο]

Contemporary Music Lab presents two lectures by Joachim Heintz.

Lecture A
Who is writing — “it” or “me”?
Decisions and Developments in Composition

Composition can be described as an “active passivity”: to listen to the (sounding) material, to discover what is inside it, to develop its potentials. This will be shown on examples of my music, and continued by a discussion about the reasons and consequences of certain decisions in the process of composing.
