Disklavier Plus

Open Workshop

 

As partner in the Ulysses Network, IMD is involved in several projects in cooperation with other European festivals and academies. The 47th International Summer Course for New Music will feature a project called Disklavier Plus: Five young European composers have been commissioned to write a new work for Disklavier and (live-) electronics: Ville Raasakka, Vito Zuraj, Ji Youn Kang, Lucas Wiegerink, Steffen Krebber. The Yamaha Disklavier is a normal acoustic piano that uses built-in electroacoustic solenoids and optical sensors allowing them to play notes and use the pedals independently of any human player, store data and reproduce it.


The Disklavier Plus project started in March 2013 with a two day workshop at Utrechtse Muziekhuis where the composers presented their first ideas or drafts. Three pieces (Ville Raasakka, Vito Zuraj and Ji Youn Kang) were premiered in September 2013 at the Gaudeamus Music Week (NL), premieres of the other two new works by Lucas Wiegerink and Steffen Krebber will take place during the 47th International Summer Course for New Music in Darmstadt 2014.
A Disklavier workshop for particpants of the Darmstadt Summer Course 2014 is planned.

 

In cooperation with Gaudeamus Muziekweek (NL), Fondation Royaumont (F),
