    As a part of Toronto International Electroacoustic Symposium 2016, the lecture and the recital of an excellent Polish pianist, Adam Kośmieja, will take place on 10th August in Canadian Music Centre in Toronto. We would like to cordially invite you to this special event.

    Toronto International Electroacoustic Symposium (TIES) is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. The event, organized by New Adventures in Sound Art (NAISA), The Canadian Electroacoustic Community (CEC), and the Canadian Music Centre (CMC), is a unique point of convergence for a growing international community of diverse electroacoustic (EA) practitioners, exploring and sharing new developments in equipment and software development, and perspectives on performance and research practices, while expanding artistic and professional network.


    Adam Kośmieja, accompanied by Kamil Kęska, will dedicate their lecture and performance to Kazimierz Serocki (1922-1981), a leading Polish avant-garde composer and a co-founder of "Warsaw Autumn" - one of the most important international contemporary music festivals worldwide. They will try to explain the complicated process of recreating Serocki's idea of sound transformation and old analogue apparatus that was used in the composition. They will perform the cadence from Serocki’s work “Pianophonie”, reproducing old analogue sound transformation devices using the MAX/MSP and Max for Live environment. “Pianophonie” was the composer’s last work, written for piano, electronic sound transformation and orchestra, commissioned and performed in the by the SWR Radio in Baden-Baden and Heinrich Strobel Experimental Music Studio in Freiburg.
