MEETINGS WITH SOUND

As part of the festival’s lecture and meetings programme, we would like to invite you to a meeting with Elżbieta Sikora, composer and artistic director of Musica Electronica Nova, and Pierre Jodlowski – composer of electronic and theatrical music.

The subject of the talk will be visual elements in contemporary music – an introduction to the evening screening.

The sixth edition of the Musica Electronica Nova festival offers a diverse programme, appealing to the viewer and listener on many levels : presenting events both for the eye and the ear, combining heritage with the contemporary, and placing classic motifs in new contexts. Electronic music will appear here not only in concert, but also as an element of multimedia installations, stage performances, and on the screen – one of the leading threads of the festival is the fusion of electronic music with cinema. The ’audio-visual’ nature of Musica Electronica Nova is emphasised by the choice of the festival’s composer-in-residence. Belgian artist Thierry De Mey is known for his cinematic and musical works, in which music merges with astonishing imagery, and the protagonist is the human body in movement. The festival programme includes concert performances of De Mey’s best-known works, film projections, and an installation presented together with Media Art Biennial WRO 2015 – Test Exposure – Wro Art CentrE.
