Ambiant Creativity
Digital Creativity and Contemporary Music
Thu, March 17, 2011 – Fri, March 18, 2011, Festival
The concentrated lecture and concert series is the conclusion of the one-week international composition workshop »digital composition« at ZKM, part of the EU-project »Ambiant Creativity.«
The concerts will explore various interactive and audiovisual forms of digital media art. Pianist and performer Sebastian Berweck presents experimental, contemporary music forms with the piano – including a premiere by composer and action artist Johannes Kreidler. In the second program, the concretization of contemporary acousmatic music shifts to the center with the ZKM_Klangdom. The finale to the workshop week and accompanying program, open to the public, will feature changing video and DJ sets on the music balcony.
Impulse lectures by Sebastian Berweck and Johannes Kreidler focus on the question of digital avant-garde and musical practice, and will be followed by a round table discussion with composers and musicologists. In the first IMA | lab, the project’s guest composers will present their new creations for the ZKM_Klangdom.
