DEJANA SECULIC ”Temporality of the Impossible: Session #7”

Description

Contemporary violin music, aesthetics, technique and performance”
is an artistic research, that started as a personal curiosity but grew
into a PhD research,
now taking place at the CeReNeM and HuCPeR, at the University of
Huddersfield (UK).

**ABSTRACT: ”How impossible is the “impossible”? The lasting curiosity of
composers in exploring continues the legacy of creating music that is
fresh, “new” and challenging not only for listening, but also to artistry
of playing. Subsequently, performers continue to be challenged by these
pieces demanding unconventional approaches. “Temporality of the
Impossible” focuses on these challenges, and addresses two important and
inseparable parts of music and performance: the tangible and the abstract.
While the former investigates challenges of the extended violin techniques
and the notation, the latter investigates the shaping of sensibility for
understanding the music. Questioning what is this “impossible” and how do
we overcome it by finding remedies for technical “unplayability”, the aim
of this research is to simultaneously seek out ways for reshaping the
understanding for the “new” aesthetics and expressivity, and whether and
how we grow into appreciating this “unconventional”.”**

In the season 2017/2018 “Temporality of the Impossible: Performance+Talk
Sessions” will mostly explore aesthetics of sound, from bare audibility to
various overpressure and everything in between, as well as music for
prepared violin/bow.

The program for the “Performance+Talk Session #5”, taking place on
Sunday January 7th, will be mostly dedicated to prepared violin/bow, and
will include pieces from Wojtek Blecharz, Clara Iannotta, John King, Kilir
Markan, as well as selections from Salvatore Sciarrino’s “Sei Capricci”
and John Cage’s “Freeman Etudes”, and Helmuth Lachenmann’s “Toccatina”.

The program for the “Performance+Talk Session #7”, taking place on Sunday
April 15th, will feature pieces of Brian Ferneyhough, Aaron Cassidy,
Samuel Cedillo,
as well as selections from Salvatore Sciarrino’s “Sei Capricci” and
John Cage’s “Freeman Etudes”, and Helmuth Lachenmann’s “Toccatina”.
