Identity and Self-Branding. Self-presentation for artists

Workshop with Helge Hinteregger and Philip Rggla

 

Being an artist means not just selling the art but the artist behind it. Even avoiding the "show" can  evoke images beyond the purely musical. Stereotypes can interfere with the arts message. However by challenging the audiences expectations in a musical and a social way the arts message can be brought to a new level. This is not only a challenging task for the professional musician but for the private person behind the artist as well.

In 1962 Ernst Krenek wrote in his article Verlegen, verlegt verlogen (a play on words with verlegen - to publish and verlogen - lying) about a composer's experiences with his publishers. Kreneks own experiences were numerous, and his oeuvre is still scattered around about 20 different publishers in different countries. What are the composers expectations? And what are the publishers obligations and possibilities? Does a composer actually need a publisher? Publishers, composers and presenters will discuss these questions, which seem to be more up-to-date than ever.

Julia Heimerdinger moderation

 

This symposium is the starting point of an extensive EU-project, which was initiated by impuls within the frame of the Ulysses-Network. The young, but already internationally succeeding composers Mirela Ivičević and Julien Malaussena (impuls), Javier Elipe Gimeno and Ariadna Alsina (IRCAM), Boris Bezemer and Mikołaj Laskowski (Gaudeamus) as well as Clara Iannotta and Simon Lffler (IMD) are commissioned by impuls and its partners to develop new compositions to the experimental films of the Austrian filmmaker Peter Tscherkassky in specific for his internationally praised CinemaScope Trilogy, for which he also received multiple awards within the next one to two years. impuls 2017 provides the starting point for the project, and interconnects the composers not only with the filmmaker, but also members of Ensemble Nikel as future interpreters as well as coaches such as Wolfgang Mitterer and Jorge Snchez-Chiong to accompany the process of creation. And of course impuls is looking forward to the project's realization in Graz in 2019.
