OpenMusic workshop @ Gaudeamus Muziekweek Academy

160904-Gaudeamus-Music-Week-Academy-Rozalie-Hirs-Open-Music

On 4 September 2016 from 11:00-17:15, as part of the Gaudeamus Muziekweek Academy, Rozalie Hirs teaches a one day workshop on OpenMusic (IRCAM). This is a workshop for composers who would like to get acquainted with OpenMusic and explore its possibilities towards the compositional process. Together we install the software and the OMTristan library on your laptops, and take the first steps towards building patches and performing musical calculations. We also look into some examples of how these calculations can turn into musical scores and data for sound synthesis.

The course is based on Hirs’s two articles from Contemporary Compositional Techniques and OpenMusic, a book she co-edited with the late Bob Gilmore in 2009.

You can apply for the workshop by sending an e-mail to academy@muziekweek.nl with your name and a short statement why you would like to take part in this course and what you would like to learn (deadline: 15 August 2016). The workshop is open to a maximum of twelve participants. A ticket for the workshop can be obtained through this link.

Venus mission completed

Zaha Hadid's Bach Pavilion; Rozalie Hirs's percussion set up for her composition 'Venus' (2010), Holland Festival, Amsterdam

It’s a delight to have completed the mastering of my composition Venus (2010) together with Guido Tichelman today. It has been a long process. Venus for six percussionists and electronic sounds was commissioned by Slagwerk Den Haag for Holland Festival 2010. It was premiered in the Bach Pavilion by Zaha Hadid at Westergasfabriek, Amsterdam, The Netherlands, on 8 June 2010. Venus is inspired by the pavilion’s loops and twists, and by the sixxen, a set of percussion instruments especially devised for Xenakis’ Pleiades in 1989. The Moebius loop of Hadid’s pavilion reminded me of the trajectory of the planet Venus in the sky as seen from the earth, when compared over the course of many nights.

The recording by Guido Tichelman of the three movements of Venus, [morning star], [invisible], and [evening star], took place at Philipszaal, Eindhoven, The Netherlands, in February 2012. The recording was supported by Henk Heuvelmans/ Gaudeamus/ Muziek Centrum Nederland. The second and third movement Venus [invisible] and Venus [evening star] were mixed and mastered in the summer of 2012. The mixing and mastering of the first movement Venus [morning star] has been waiting until the summer of 2015 to be completed.

The brand-new CD of Slagwerk Den Haag, also featuring compositions by Xenakis, Ayres, van Rossum, Adriaansz, Yudo, Johnson, will be presented at the opening concert of Gaudeamus Music Week at Muziekcentrum Vredenburg, Utrecht, The Netherlands, on 9 September 2015. The complete recording of Venus will be posted on Soundcloud soon.
