Theoretical and Aesthetic approaches to composition - a 2day Workshop with Zbigniew Karkowski - Nov 2&3 Berlin


Dates:
Fri Oct 02, 2009 00:00 - Thu Oct 08, 2009

Theoretical and Aesthetic approaches to composition - a 2day Workshop with Zbigniew Karkowski - Nov 2&3 Berlin


Born in Krakow, Poland, in 1958, Zbigniew Karkowski is one of the most significant artists working in the field of experimental and contemporary music.

For the first time in Berlin, he will give a workshop for sound artists, musicians or composers who are interested in his approach to composition and live performance on both the technical and formal level. This workshop gives the participants an opportunity to gain insight into the working methods of on one of the most challenging composers / performers of electronic music today.

Karkowski will teach the participants about his aesthetic and conceptual approaches towards composition through an in depth analysis of some of his own pieces as well as exploring the compositional concepts that are inherent to the design of his Max and Super Collider patches. Along these lines aesthetic approaches towards the use of sound textures, timbres and the technical aspects of sound production will also be covered and finally he will share his experiences and ideological beliefs about live performance and composition.


Karkowski studied composition at the State College of Music in Gothenburg, Sweden, aesthetics of modern music at the University of Gothenburg’s Department of Musicology, and computer music at the Chalmers University of Technology. After the completion of his studies in Sweden, he has studied sonology for a year at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Den Haag, Netherlands. During these years, he attended many summer composition master courses (Centre Acanthes in France) where he studied with Pierre Boulez, Iannis Xenakis, Olivier Messiaen, and Georges Aperghis.

He has produced numerous works in the fields of both acoustic and electronic music and has written 3 pieces for large orchestra, an opera and several chamber music works. Karkowski was also a founding member of the electroacoustic music performance trio

“Sensorband” (with Atau Tanaka and Edwin van der Heide) and collaborated with artists like Francisco Lopez, Blixa Bargeld, Merzbow, Pita, Hafler trio,...

Based in Tokyo, Karkowski has a large collection of releases and regularly presents his work all over the world.

The Blank Pages Performance is an improvisation involving live coding, where the participants are musicians and instrument makers at the same time.
The performances are never prepared and the participants do not necessarily know each other. Each participant has a station on which he creates a sound making program in real time using Pure Data or MaxMSP. These programming environments allow them to write and modify their code while continuing to produce sound and/or video. There is no computer connection between the stations : only listening to each other allows the participants to play together- the quality of the music produced is based on this central idea and it is each performer’s responsibility to listen as much as possible. This, the score, and the four points below are what guides the musician/programmers through the Blank Pages Performance.
1. The performance lasts one hour. This is the length redeemed sufficient to construct and develop a dialogue between the performers.
2. Each participant must use one of two programming languages written by Miller Puckette ; Pure Data or Max MSP. These programming environments were conceived for the real time creation and processing of data, sound
and video.
3. The musician/programmers must begin the performance with a blank programming page. They are therefore set in a situation of pure improvisation since even there instrument is non-existent at the beginning of the set.
4. It is strictly forbidden to load or save a file during the entire session.
