We Spoke New Music: Call for Works-in-progress

We Spoke invites composers taking part in the Darmstadt Summer Course to submit work-in progress compositions and/or sketches involving up to four percussionists, amplification, live electronics and various controllers.
Each of the five musicians will have a personal sound card with microphones, controller and will be running Max/MSP on individual computers. This will allow to explore the possibilities of multiple patches to be used individually and simultaneously by each player. We will have a surround sound system (5.1) installed with a fully flexible routing system, allowing to explore spacialisation too.
Robert Torche will also offer Max/MSP tutorials and will be available to develop Max/MSP patches on the basis of an idea, for composers who don’t necessarily have experience with electronics software. The four performers are percussionists/drummers and Robert is a Max/MSP expert as well as a very skilled gyro-controllers user (check this). All performers will also be happy to use their other basic instrumental and vocal skills.

Internal Call for Scores: Chamber Sessions

The Chamber Sessions, in 2014 initiated for the first time in Darmstadt by saxophone tutor Marcus Weiss, give a special focus to the potential of the about 400 Summer Course participants: Each of them is bringing "her / his" music, ideas and individual approaches to Darmstadt. The chamber music format Chamber Sessions is offering a framework for the exchange on rehearsal methodology, notation, current compositional practices and interpretation by facing a concrete score together. A Call for the Scores invites the composition students of the Darmstadt Summer Course 2016 to submit pieces. The tutors will select the most interesting pieces for the project and will work on them together with small ad hoc ensembles (3 to 5 players). As soon as the pieces will be chosen, we’ll publish a Call for Musicians who can then sign up for a musical part.
