Música Viva 2015

Once again, following its vision and main mission, the Festival constitutes an integrated initiative focused on the dissemination of contemporary music creation, simultaneously being committed to Portuguese composers and the relations of music with technology.

In 2015 the Música Viva Festival, taking place between May 21 and 30 at O'culto da Ajuda in Lisbon, completes its 21st edition and celebrates the 30th anniversary of Miso Music Portugal.

Once again, following its vision and main mission, the Festival constitutes an integrated initiative focused on the dissemination of contemporary music creation, simultaneously being committed to Portuguese composers and the relations of music with technology.

The Música Viva 2015 presents the broadest ever representation of Portuguese music, with 50 pieces by Portuguese composers, within the approximately 70 works of its complete programme.

The Festival includes 18 concerts, as well as installations, dance, video, poetry, courses, workshops and meetings.

Additionally, the Música Viva International Composition Competition, the hosting of EASTN (European Art Science Technology Network) and the partnership with MINSTREL, provide not only close collaborations with various artists, but also open the Festival essentially inside Europe.

Giving evidence to the vitality of new music creation, the Festival’s programme embraces 18 world-premieres, not to mention the numerous Portuguese first performances.

The Música Viva 2015 Festival constitutes a vibrant collection of diverse ideas and aesthetics; promoting new ways of expression and approaching the audience; as well as creating opportunities for emerging artists.

Virtual City . WP

The metaphor of the city map serves as the foundation for the interactive concert virtual city. Sounds recorded in certain locations of a city are (dis)played on a virtual spatial map and through a speaker circle. The visitors of the concert can login into a map of the city with indicators of sounds and their origin. These sounds are triggered by each phone through a server and played in the concert space in the right location. Certain filters, changed in time make sure that the quality of sounds change through time. Through this environment the visitors improvise and play with different collections of sounds superimposing each other. It is probably a condensed soundwalk inside the concert hall.

COURSES & WORKSHOPS

Secret Garden workshop
May 23 & 24 from 10h00 am to 2h00 pm
by Olivia Kotsifa and Alexandros Kontogeorgakopoulos

The participants will be involved at an interactive installation that involves a series of helium balloons with embedded LED lights, each carrying a secret.  During this 2 half day workshops they will learn some basic interaction principles, basic microcontroller programming, design, and hardware and will be hands on in the making of their own micro controller for the installation, soldering surface mount components onto a cnc milled circuit board, customised for this particular project [a customised Arduino] 

The participants can take their circuit boards at home after the end of the event .
Language: English
Attendance: maximum of 10 participants with their laptops - Mac or windows or linux to use to download arduino [freeware] for the programming
The resulting audiovisual installation will be presented on the 24th at 23h00 at O’culto da Ajuda main hall.
Price: 30 €

Programming in composition and sound art
May 25, 26 & 27 from 2h00 to 6h00 pm
by Andre Bartetzki

Many composers and sound artists use their computers mostly for editing and arranging sounds and treat them with fancy ready-made plug-ins or they regard the computer as a sampler or synthesizer or just as a smart media player for performances and installations.

If you feel it's time for you to leave those beaten tracks and if you want to explore new paths finding your own personal approach to sound processing and interactivity - then this workshop might be something for you!
Starting from the analysis of a few projects of my own and by others we will have a look at various approaches of generative and interactive design of sound and musical structure and how to adopt and to change them according to your imagination.
As programming tools we will be using SuperCollider and MaxMSPJitter. Learning the first steps in these two environments will be also part of this workshop.
Language: English
Attendance: maximum of 10 participants with their laptops with SuperCollider (1) or MaxMSPJitter (2) or both already installed
Price: 50 €

(1) Free downloads available here:
http://supercollider.sourceforge.net/
http://supercollider.github.io/

(2) download a 30-day trial version or buy it from
