The second event in CIMRO DAYS is a different kind of symposium: four young musicologists will give four different and exciting views on the same subject, “Mechanics and Mechanisms in Music”. You’ll find out what subtle connections are there between wheels, pistons, clocks, as well as between musical predictability versus musical unforseeableness, by listening to Ştefan Firca, Irina Niţu, Vlad Văidean (Bucharest) and Bianca Ţiplea-Temeş (Cluj). The symposium is powered by Modernism.ro and is part of the “Variations on a Given Theme” series, one of the very few commission projects for young musicians in Romania – sustained by the Administration of the National Cultural Fund / Administraţia Fondului Cultural Naţional.

Free entrance.

“We’re in this Together Now”

A Symposium on Crossmedial Experiments in the Collaborative Arts

The symposium is dedicated to the recently much discussed theme of collaboration in the arts and related fields, with a focus on the performative arts. Particularly in avant-garde or neo-avantgarde experimental projects, collaborative approaches are often deployed as a means to transcend the myth of the solitairy genius artist, but also to bring together various media and technologies in open, laboratory-style environments – for instance in the visual music scene in which theCAMPfestival has been situated since 1999. In the context of this symposium, “collaborative arts” does not simply refer to projects in which several participants are involved, but to those which encourage genuine exchange, interaction, amalgamation and hybridization. The speakers will present and discuss case studies from their respective fields of research and/or practical experience, and contextualize them against the background of contemporary and historic discourses on experimentation, collaboration and performativity. Moreover, a question to be addressed is to which extent the latest rise of collaborative art projects mirrors the postindustrial, digital-based era which increasingly looks for new modes of production and consumption such as “prosumerism” or “wikinomics”.

With: Cornelia Lund, Miron Ghiu, Horea Avram, Jörg Scheller, Mircea Florian

Concept

TheCAMPFestivalwas founded in 1999 by Prof. Fried Dähn and Thomas Maos. Since 2003, it has been organized and run and coordinated byCAMPe.V. (Thomas Maos, Fried Dähn, Stefan Hartmaier, and Martin Mangold) .

The international CAMP(Creative Arts and Music Project) festival is an innovative platform and interactive research lab for sound artists, musicians, and artists in the areas of video, installation, projection and new media. It focuses on new, experimental music in conjunction with light, projection and media art. In what is effectively a laboratory created for a defined period, artists – all of them recognized members of the international avantgarde in their respective fields – collaborate for several days on new forms of audio-visual art, presentation techniques and live performances. The results are showcased to the public in concerts, installations, and performances held alongside the event. Moreover, various topics and aspects are presented and developed in accompanying lectures and workshops.

Each festival is staged at a different location, with a new team of international artists. The unfamiliar spaces, the associated creative criteria, and collaboration with new artists pose challenges that unlock vast creative potential and foster intensive international dialogue. GOAL The development of new forms of artistic presentation in sound and light art, in the context of contemporary and forward-looking creative approaches. International dialogue and collaboration between artists from different backgrounds, with a catalytic effect at both a personal and cultural level.
