Announcement for Research-Led Performance Workshop The Guitar in the Work of Mauricio Kagel, Giacomo Manzoni and Fausto Romitelli
From 27th to 29th June 2016, the Institute for Music of the Giorgio Cini Foundation in Venice, in collaboration with the Orpheus Instituut in Ghent (Belgium), will organise a workshop intended for musicians specialised in electric and/or acoustic guitar performance, who are familiar with any musical language for guitar.
The notice of registration for 12 participants with scholarships is intended to encourage collaboration between composers, musicologists and instrumentalists, preparing performances based on in-depth studies of musical structures as well as sources pertaining to the compositional process and documentation of historical performances.
Each of the three days of the workshop is subdivided into a theoretical section, held during the morning, and a section dedicated to musical practices. The section dedicated to musical practices will be held by Luk Vaes, who will discuss the works Tactil and Unter Strom of composer Mauricio Kagel; Elena Casoli, who will explore a few compositions for acoustic guitar by Giacomo Manzoni and Fausto Romitelli; Giacomo Baldelli, who will focus on the repertoire for electric guitar and especially on Trash Tv Trance by Fausto Romitelli.
The workshop will come to a conclusion with three concerts that foresee the performance, among other works, of the following compositions: Tactil and Unter Strom by Mauricio Kagel, Echi by Giacomo Manzoni and Trash TV Trance by Fausto Romitelli.
