Workshop „Composition Beyond Music“ with Peter Ablinger

Within the next Darmstadt Summer Course Peter Ablinger will conduct a workshop titled „Composition Beyond Music": „Field recordings, site-specific compositions and installations, the presentation of sounds, sound production as a social pattern, the essentials of sound and music, music without sounds, technology and research into source material, the body in music, archaeoacoustics, sound and other media, perception and reality – these are just some of the potential themes to be explored, elaborated, and presented by the participants in their own works in this workshop series that combines theory and practice."


In these words Peter Ablinger drafts the workshop that „is meant to encourage the critical analysis of musical preconditions and practices so that the participants will be inspired to discover alternative forms of sounds and listening through the aesthetic examination of such practices."


The workshop is limited to a small group of 8-10 composers/artists. Peter Ablinger will select the participants right after the application deadline which is 15 January 2014. A first meeting for this project is planned to take place in Darmstadt in April 2014.

 

Peter Ablingers Workshop is part of the European Network ULYSSES.
