Patterns of Intuition

Musical Creativity in the Light of Algorithmic Composition, Nierhaus G. (ed.)

Due on January 14, 2015 by Springer, New York

After a three year research project at the Institute of Electronic Music and Acoustics of the University of Music and Drama at Graz, the publication of the research results is due on January 14, 2015 as Springer, NY, announced today.

The research project investigated the creative act of composing by means of algorithmic composition. Central to the investigation are the compositional strategies of 12 composers, which were documented through a dialogic and cyclic process of modelling and evaluating musical materials. The aesthetic premises and compositional approaches configure a rich spectrum of diverse positions, which is reflected also in the kinds of approaches and methods used.

The book includes the chapter Dimitri Papageorgiou/Interlocking and Scaling, which is my composition project within  the frame of Patterns of Intuition. The first part of the book entails another very interesting 11 composition projects by Elisabeth Harnik, Clemens Nachtmann, Eva Reiter, Clemens Gadenstätter, Katharina Klement, Orestis Toudektsis, Alexander Stankovski, Matthias Sköld, Djuro Zivkovic, Bart Vanhecke, and Peter Lackner.

The second part features contributions by Sandeep Bagwhati, William Brooks, David Cope, Darla Crispin, Nicolas Donin, and Guerino Mazzola. These authors variously consider the project from different perspectives, offer independent approaches, or provide more general reflections from their respective research fields.

Many thanks go to our editor and project leader, dr. Gerhard Nierhaus, and his team, dr. Hanns Holger Rutz and Daniel Mayer, for their tireless effort during this three year period.

Translucent Currents - Title snapshot

Last night, I put the final brush strokes on a new score. Translucent Currents is a miniature for chamber ensemble, scored for flute, oboe, clarinet, alt sax, bassoon, horn, trumpet, 2 trombones, piano, percussion, and string quintet and has a duration of approximately 3 minutes.

Translucent Currents has been composed within a period from September 5th to September 29th, with a 7-day break, in between, for my trip to Athens for the ICMC/SMC Conference. Above, you can view the first four pages of the score.

The work was commissioned by conductor Edo Micic for the anniversary concert “10 Years Ensemble Zeitfluss,” which will take place on October 27th in Minoritensaal Graz, Austria.

The anniversary concert features commissioned miniatures by prominent composers, such as Gerd Kühr, Klaus Lang, Gerhard Stäbler, Joanna Wozny, Elisabeth Harnik, Denovaire, Krešimir Seletković, Mirela Ivičević, Florian Geßler, Daniel Oliver Moser, Orestis Toufektsis, Gerd Noack, Anselm Schaufler, Klaus Dorfegger, Joachim Jung, and Gerhard Krammer.

If you are in Athens this coming Thursday, September 18th, don’t miss the concert Music for Ensemble II at the JOINT ICMC/SMC Conference. The concert takes place at the Main Hall of the Onassis Cultural Center, a state of the art concert hall.

Among various very interesting works in the program, by composers such as Patricia Alessandrini, Judith Shatin, Kyong Mee Choi, Lidia Zielinska, Martin Ritter, and my Greek colleague Leontios Hatzileontiadis, is my wok Effluénces (2011), a very challenging piece for ensemble.

The full program of the concert entails:

Leontios Hadjileontiadis, Brainswarm for bio-conductor soloist and ensemble, kinect, ΕEG Emotiv, MAX/MSP-Processing live electronics and visuals (2013) 13′

Judith Shatin, Spring Tides for amplified flute, clarinet, violin, cello, piano and interactive electronics 11’3”

Effluénces – Program Notes:

I wonder how the warp of living memory can affect a musical narrative, which would record the inscription, over time, of the remembered past — e.g. of a musical event – in memorial form. For that purpose, I tried to focus on the moment of recollection and I have envisaged the form as a ‘tree of memory.’ The branches of this ‘tree’ extend in various directions as reconstructions of the past in the light of present, following the tricks memory plays in every step of the way: some of the facts have been switched, others are omitted or added; in some cases, accurate memories are mixed with inaccurate ones and, in other cases, facts are perhaps retained but their source is forgotten.

The pitch structures of Effluénces have been obtained by using algorithmic routines in Super Collider. The routines have been implemented in the frame of the research project Algorithmic Composition in the Context of New Music (2009-10), which took place at the Institute for Electronic Music and Acoustics of the University of Music and Drama at Graz, Austria. Given a limited material as input—usually two or three different ordered pitch cells—linear arrays of cells are formed which are subsequently braided with one another, constantly regrouping into new formations in order to engender inexhaustible variants at the output.

The score of Effluénces is available by BabelScores at www.babelscores.com/en/catalog/inst…ents/effluences

Dimitri Papageorgiou – Quasi (ébauche) for string quartet (2014)

Tags

, , ,

Performed by the string quartet of the Ensemble Klangforum on July 2nd, 2014, at Ligeti Saal, Mumuth, Graz.

Program Notes

The corruptive dimension of the reconstructive nature of memory serves as a formal model for the unraveling of the present work. Recent neuroscience research coraborates early twentieth century views on memory as a dynamic and evolving phenomenon:

remembering is not a simple retrieval of past events. Memory stores only fragments of the past that later serve for the mental reconstruction of past events, which are susceptible to various kinds of biases and distortions, as well as selective and elaborative processes.

In Quasi (ébauche) the original formative ideas are constantly recalled in a series of reconstructions of the past in constantly present contexts, having at times more fidelity—and at times growing less similar—to the original experience. These reconstructions, by means of pitch gene recombinations, leave only memory vestiges of the original by constantly shifting, diffusing, distorting, transforming, omitting or adding events according to a model of retention/corruption.

It is, in other words, like drawing “on the elements and gist of the past, and extract, recombine and reassemble them into imaginary events that never occurred in that exact form,…not to preserve the past but to adapt it so as to enrich and manipulate the present.’’ It is all about what is remembered and how it is remembered…

During the past three years, 2012-14, I was among the guest composers of the art-research project Patterns of Intuition (POINT), which was hosted by the Institute of Electronic Music (dr. Gerhard Nierhaus – project leader) at the University of Music and Performing Arts at Graz, Austria, and was funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF).

The project was investigating the creative process of composing by means of Algorithmic Composition in collaboration with 14 European composers and 9 guest artist/researchers.

Composers (in alphabetical order):

Tamara Friebel, Clemens Gadenstätter, Elisabeth Harnik, Sonja Huber, Katherina Klement, Peter Lackner, Clemens Nachtmann, Dimitri Papageorgiou, Eva Reiter, Mattias Sköld, Alexander Stankowski, Orestis Toufektsis, Bart Vanhecke, and Djuro Zivkovic.

Guest artist/researchers (in alphabetical order):

Sandeep Bhagwati, William Brooks, David Cope, Darla Crispin, Nicolas Donin, Thomas Eder, Klemens Fellner, Harald Fripertinger, and Guerino Mazzola.

The commissioned works for the project have been presented on July 2nd in a double concert performed by the string players of the ensemble Klangforum Wien and Janna Polyzoides.

The research findings, including project reports for the work with each composer and research chapters by the guest artists/researchers will be published later this year by Springer, NY.

New works

Tags

String quartet copyIt’s been a while since my last post. It has been a busy but very creative period, composing feverishly during the past six months. During that time, I have composed three new works:

  • Quasi (ébauche) for string quartet. Commissioned for the string players of the Ensemble Klangforum by the Institute for Electronic Music and Acoustics of the University of Music at Graz in the frame of the research project Patterns of Intuition.
  • Intrascalings for clarinet, marimba, and double bass. Commissioned by the Ensemble Et Cetera (San Diego, U.S.A.).
  • ḍafīr for flute and piano. Commissioned by Nafsika Tsara – flute and Maria Mylaraki – piano, an excellent Greek duo.

I have also completed my contribution for the edited volume of the research project Patterns of Intuition, which will appear later this year on Springer Edition, NY.

Details for upcoming premieres and concerts coming soon!
