If in the mood for experiencing and exploring some curious, exciting,
peculiar, adventurous music, you are most warmly invited to come and
sensate the wondrous sonar worlds of Wojtek Blecharz, Clara Iannotta, John
King, Helmuth Lachenmann, Keeril Makan, Robert Wannamaker. The performance
will also include a selection from John Cage’s “Freeman Etudes” and
Salvatore Sciarrino’s “Sei Capricci”. Some of the pieces on this session #5
will be performed on the violin by Thomas Meuwissen.


**How impossible is the “impossible”? The lasting curiosity of composers in
exploring expression through music continues the legacy of creating pieces
that are fresh, “new” and challenging not only for listening, but also to
artistry of playing. Subsequently, performers continue to be challenged by
these pieces demanding unconventional approaches. “Temporality of the
Impossible” focuses on these challenges, and addresses two important and
inseparable parts of music and performance: the tangible and the abstract.
While the former investigates challenges of the extended violin techniques
and the notation, the latter investigates the shaping of sensibility for
understanding the music. While questioning what is this “impossible” and
how do we overcome it by finding remedies for technical “unplayability”,
the aim of this research is to simultaneously seek out ways for reshaping
the understanding for the “new” aesthetics and expressivity, and whether
and how we grow into appreciating this “unconventional”.**

In the season 2017/2018 “Temporality of the Impossible: Performance+Talk
Sessions” will primarily explore aesthetics of sound, from bare audibility
to various degrees of pressure/scratch and everything in between, music of
various "complexities" as well as music for prepared violin/bow.


Looking forward to seeing your ears!
