Surviving as a composer?

Doris Weberberger (mica - music austria) in conversation with composer, ensemble and festival director Matthias Kranebitter.

 

Working as a composer not only takes place behind closed doors, but also requires a high degree of self-organization and networking in order to bring one's own pieces to performance. How do composers approach organisers and how important are (informal) networks? Doris Weberberger (mica - music austria) talks to Matthias Kranebitter, who is not only a composer himself, but also the founder and director of the Ensemble Black Page Orchestra and the Unsafe + Sounds festival. He also held the IGNM presidency (Austrian sectioin of the ISCM) in 2018. With his diverse functions and experience, he provides practical and helpful information.

This multistage project was initiated by impuls within the frame of the EU-Ulysses-Network involving several partners and enjoying invitations already beyond this circle. The young, but internationally emerging 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 write new compositions for experimental films of Austrian filmmaker Peter Tscherkassky in specific for his internationally praised CinemaScope Trilogie, for which he also received multiple awards.

After a kick-off meeting for all artistis involved in this project in Graz back in 2017, which included also a symposion on film and music, meetings with Yaron Deutsch of Ensemble Nikel as representative of the future interpreters, and coaching by Wolfgang Mitterer and Jorge Snchez-Chiong, impuls is now heading towards the realization of its own commissions, the premiere of further compositions contributed by participants of the impuls Academy 2017 as well as two more compositions, which were premiered already at an Ulysses-partner institution before.

All composers involved will be present at impuls, and also meet for a discussion of the project on February 13th, 10 am.
