“Variations on a Given Theme”

MECHANICS AND MECHANISMS IN MUSIC

[View more photos HERE, on our Facebook page.]

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.

CIMRO DAYS 2014

The Romanian Music Information Center organizes between June-November 2014 CIMRO DAYS, a series of musical events that will take place at A1 (Piata Amzei no.1) – one of the freshest sites in Bucharest. If you are interested in Romanian contemporary chamber music, we invite you to „Expositions and Presentations” (June 8 and October 8), where you’ll be able to talk directly to the composers and musicologists from different generations about the performed works. Four young Romanian musicologists will analyse and present the „Mechanics and Mechanisms in Music” from four different point of views on July 6, in casual symposium. This event will be included in a „Variations on a Given Theme” series of comissions meant to stimulate and promote the new generation of music specialists in Romania. The other event from this category is „Frescomania” (November 4), a series of short contemporary variations on Girolamo Frescobaldi’s gorgeous air Se L’aura Spira (1630), transformed in a kaleidoscope of personal styles. 

All music will be performed by the members of SonoMania, at the moment one of the most active and energetic new music ensembles in Bucharest, that has been trying since it’s foundation, in 2012, to create new contexts for contemporary and modern music, especially through multimedia and synchretic concerts. SonoMania has played in important festivals such as The International New Music Week (Bucharest), Bucharest Music Film Festival – ArCuB,  Happoman 2012 (South Korea) or MeridianISCM-Romanian Section Days (Bucharest).

CIMRO DAYS 2014 is sponsored by the Administration of the National Cultural Fund (AFCN). The access to all events is free.
