Once again, we are going to burden the festival audience with the works by Zbigniew Karkowski. The composer from Krakow, a graduate of the local Academy of Music, was a composer valued for his imagination and uncompromising approach. He was active mainly on the experimental music scene, he also improvised and created sound art. Karkowski willingly used the stochastic procedures, characteristic of Xenakis. Two years ago, at the 15th edition of the Festival showcased the results of his collaboration with Berlin-based Zeitkratzer, and in 2018, the composition Doing by not Doing was interpreted by GGR Betong – Swedish chamber noise orchestra. In a word, these were LOUD concerts and were met with great acclaim. In 2019, we will hear pieces written in cooperation with Anton Lukoszevieze, Zespół Wokalny Gęba and Wolfram.
We also recommend the OSCILLUM concert, featuring Apartment House performing Karkowski’s Field for string quartet and tape.
The ENCUMBRANCE and STUDIE IN FORM concerts are available free of charge.
