FAMU, Smetanovo náb. 2, 1. patro, U1
April 20, 7pm
The lecture is in english

The standard musical notation for many years doesn’t suffice to express all the ideas that composers have. Because of that various forms of scores (using graphic means, text or combining both) have been developed. In my lecture I’ll talk about works of Cornelius Cardew, John Cage, Roman Haubtenstock-Ramati, R. Murray Schafer, Iannis Xenakis, Manfred Werder among others. I’ll also draw upon my own practice of using architectural plans as starting points for realization of music compositions.

Piotr Tkacz (born 1985) writes, mostly about music, leads a broadcast, organizes concerts, exhibits and records. He is the co-creator of a project Kurort, Revue svazu českých architektů, Stupor, he is opend on variety of improvisional meetings, and also performs text and graphic scores. His articles were published in HIS Voice, Czas kultury, Glissando, 2+3D, Dwutygodnik/Biweekly, Fragile. Tkacz was invited to festivals as Ostrava New Music Days, Animator, Musica Electronica Nova and gave lectures in National Museum of Ethnography in Warsaw and Kulturhauz in Toruń.
