Music workshops devoted to the works of the Austrian composer Friedrich Cerha

April 15-18, 2013

Private Primary and Secondary Music School Missio Musica in Warsaw

The aim of the workshop was to awaken the sonic imagination and interest the participants in the work of Friedrich Cerha, especially his concept of static sound spaces.

The participants, after getting acquainted with fragments of Cerha’s recordings and scores, made an attempt to compose their own collective composition. The workshop orchestra was made up of musical instruments and various objects; bottles, boxes, kitchen tiles, etc.

Three two-hour meetings were filled with work on an improvised musical form, its modeling, gradual transformation of sound, texture, tempo, etc. A short notation of the piece was also developed. The effects of this work were presented at the concert ending the workshop.
