David Bird forgery #24 for violin and video*
David Bird apocrypha for violin, viola, and 8 channel electronics*
David Bird drop for string octet and strobe lights*
Monika Szpyrka are there hidden figures? for string quartet, electronics and video**
The commissioning of are there hidden figures? by Monika Szpyrka was co-funded by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage as part of the programme ‘Composing Commissions’ realised by the Institute of Music and Dance.
David Bird is one of the most promising composers from USA and develops a very singular repertoire which includes systemic technologies as a complete part of the writing process. In drop for string quartet and strobe projectors, the question of light defines new ways of perceiving the music field as a new possible counterpoint.
For this concert, we have also commissioned a new piece by Monika Szpyrka, a Kraków-based young composer, who also questions music practices by adding video and electronics.
