Event details

2:30pm – 3:30pm: Graveyard and Slot (with guest appearance)

Shlomowitz will discuss ways he sets up a quasi-theatrical scenario through music and sound, without recourse to image or text, in his recent composition Graveyard and Slot (with guest appearance). In advance, you can look at a performance of the work given by Ensemble Nikel at the 2020 edition of the Warsaw Autumn Festival here.
