Workshop on Composition and Sound Experimentation

Festival Mixtur de Barcelona is doing an open call to enroll in the Composition and Sound Experimentation Workshop Mixtur 2021 as activity linked to the festival.

The Composition and Sound Experimentation Workshop 2021 is aimed mainly at composers and sound artists whether students or professionals of any age and nationality.

Workshop teaching team

This edition teaching team will be composed by: Agustí Charles, Beat Furrer, Carola Bauckholt, Cassandra Miller, Maria de Alvear, Martin Matalon, Ramon Lazkano.

Also we will count on the cooperation of ensembles and soloists for the reading sessions and concerts pieces.

Due to the recent situation caused by COVID-19, this edition includes the possibility to participate in the workshop online. No doubt, we suggest to enroll in the face to face workshop which includes more activities and numerous concerts.

The workshop will take place from September 30 to October 3 (Workshop A) and from October 7 to 10 (Workshop B) and will include the following activities:

-A individual class with a resident composer for participants in workshop A or B. Participants in workshops A and B are entitled to two individual classes.

Instrumental or electroacoustic experimentation:
Instrumental: reading session with a performer or ensemble (Mixtur will assign the instrument/s to each participant). Finished works, fragments of pieces or works in process will be accepted, as well as improvisation works proposals with or without score. The framework of a reading session isn’t a concert performance as the aim is to work with musicians and encourage the exchange of ideas.
Electroacoustic: electroacoustic piece spatialisation (max. 8 channels).

Open Space where participants will be able to introduce their work to the rest of participants.
Master class and lectures by Mixtur resident composers and performers and other artists. Some participants can be chosen to premiere a Miniature within the festival’s programme.
Free access to students as well as visiting students to activities and concerts taking place in Fabra i Coats-Fàbrica de Creació.

WORKSHOP A or B (no preference): 190 €
WORKSHOP A and B: 260 €
VISITING STUDENT (A and/or B): 80 € (only face to face)
