As part of the ongoing collaboration with KulturKontakt Austria I am glad to host Franciszek Araszkiewicz as artist in residence at my studio for several days starting October 24. The result of his sound work will be presented in a concert on the 29th of October.
His electroacoustic compositions will be followed by a second part of the concert evening, a duo with Lukas Lauermann, arranged by Michael Fischer who is well known for his innovative investigation on the saxophone including feedback generated sound textures as well as launching the Vienna Improvisers Orchestra in 2004.
20:00 Franciszek Araszkiewicz
Electroacoustic compositions, including:
Study of Brainfields 2 for live electronics governed by brainwaves and electromagnetic fields (2016)
Fluctuation Architecture for electromagnetic fields of Amann Studios (2016)
Aleph and Continuum for fixed media (2015)
Michael Fischer, tenor saxophone, violin
Lukas Lauermann, cello
A duo sharing the free improvisational, polylogical moment within the creational process, negotiation, reception, commitment. A multi layered speech music performance on extended elaborated techniques and profile.
The two parts of the evening can be seen as juxtapositions of two different approaches, one being the compositional way, leaving room for somehow aleatoric influences like the electromagnetic field of my studio (which is hopefully strong enough for this occasion), the other being some kind of instant composing, leaving much to the improvising momentum.
A further thought is the idea of a get together between musicians from different countries and musical backgrounds in the sense of the Artist in Residence program as I understand it, being a way of intercultural exchange.
