Symposium & CUBE-Lecture: "Instrument und Electroacoustics"

Thursday, January 14th 2016, 14.00 h
IEM CUBE, Inffeldgasse 10 / III, 8010 Graz

The multiple relation between instrument and electro-acoustics was highlighted in this symposium at the Institute of Electronic Music and Acoustics, organized in cooperation with Dr. Christa Brüstle (Centre for Gender Studies, Institute for Music Aesthetics). The debate was tied to Sylvie Lacroix's solo CD flute extended with works for flute and electronics, which appeared on the ORF (Austrian Braodcasting Cooperation) label, and recent pieces of the Italian composer Giuseppe Iacono, who is using noisy violin sounds for his electroacoustic compositions: In lectures and a concluding discussion the invited interpreters, composers and the producer of the CD, Stephen Ferguson, explicated their individual approaches to the genre of musique mixte respectively the use of instrumental-acoustic material in the electronic space. On the next day the bespoken works were performed in a concert at Minoritensaal.
