The past years we’ve seen vibrant initiatives in the scene of contemporary classical music. New venues, new concert forms and
brave musical experiments has attracted new audiences and merged club formats seamlessly with classical music and DJ sets. Composer,
DJ and musician Gabriel Prokofiev has been running his club format Indie Classical in London for some years, creating a whole new plattform
and together with the conductor, festival arranger and musical activist Etienne Abelin from Zürich, C3IC and Sound of Stockholm offers
a unique workshop for curios and creative minds in the classical and contemporary music scene.

What is C3IC?
A Pan-European collaboration between Piranha Arts, Tallinn Music Week, Sound of Stockholm, Cross-linx and Indie-Classical, supported
by national funds and the European Union’s Creative Europe fund. Four artists (U:&Ekke, Hauschka, In Code and there are no more four seasons)
perform and make new musical collaborations at the aforementioned festivals. Meetings, talks, workshops and development of the
Indie Classical Network are also a vital part of the project.

The workshop is organised by Musikcentrum Öst/SEKT in collaboration with EMS, Sound of Stockholm and C3IC- project.

A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man
A presentation of acoustic & electroacoustic music of Ákos Nagy,
where he reveals his composing techniques and guides us among his different psychoacoustic experiments.
Àkos´s art is synthetic and shows a synthesizing tendency which is built from the Netherlandish polyphone tradition. He examined Gothic and late Renaissance music, traces of which show up in his later music along with elements of Transsylvanian, Indian, Khmer, Balinese and Japenese classical culture.
He is researching the rhythm and tone systems outside Europe. He turns towards exploring new forms and structures, filling them with his characteristic take on melody which usually origins from non-tempered (just intonation) systems. His music juxtaposes solid blocks of sound that keep reprising accumulatively - a method he branded 'layering technique'.

His music is influenced by the I-II World War avant-garde, the American experimental, the early psychedelic music, many European and outside Europe folk music and former arts.
In his pieces, he shows a penchent for mathematical series, textures arranged after priciples of variation which are substantiated with polyrhythmic, polytempoed, polymetric patterns of melody and rhythm.
During the course of the presentation the composer not only speaks about his pieces but also performs them.

Tonsättaren Folke Rabe har gått bort. Han studerade vid Kungl Musikhögskolan i Stockholm 1957-64 för bland andra Valdemar Söderholm, Bo Wallner, Karl-Birger Blomdahl, Ingvar Lidholm, György Ligeti och Witold Lutoslawski.

Inom den moderna konstmusiken var Rabe en företrädare för improvisationsmusik och grafisk notation. Senare utgjorde musik för mässingsblåsinstrument en markant del i hans verklista. Han har också komponerat uppmärksammade körmusikverk, bland dessa kan nämnas "Pièce" och "Rondes", samt elektroakustisk musik -bland annat stycket "Va?? Was?? What??" inspelat i den gamla "Klangverkstaden" på EMS i Sveriges Radios historiska lokaler på Kungsgatan 8.

Som jazzmusiker spelade Folke Rabe med bland andra Arne Domnérus storband och Harry Arnolds radioband. Han valdes in som medlem i Föreningen svenska tonsättare 1965. Under åren 1968-80 var han programdirektör på Rikskonserter och ansvarig för uppbyggnaden av "Elektronmusikslådan", vars viktigaste komponent var den Serge synthesizer som idag finns i Studio 6 på Elektronmusikstudion.

1980-2000 arbetade han som bl a musikproducent på Sveriges Radio. Folke Rabe blev 81 år. 

12th September 17:00–20:00, Elektronmusikstudion EMS. The lecture is free and held in English.

How can class, race, gender and sexuality be expressed through sound technologies? This question has motivated and transformed Yvette Janine Jackson’s
creative practice and research.

In this talk Yvette will explore how electroacoustic music can be used to express identity outlining the history and development of this practice based research
and presenting excerpts of her fixed media pieces.
Yvette Janine Jackson is a composer of electroacoustic, chamber, and orchestral musics for concert, theatre, and installation blending various forms into her
own aesthetic of narrative soundscape composition, radio opera, and improvisation. Her works often draw from history to examine relevant social issues.
This lecture is a collaboration between Stockholm Academy of Dramatic Arts (SADA) and EMS as part of the independent course Feminist Perspectives in Sonic Arts.

Do it Yourself Serge Eurorack Modular + Haible by Random*Source with Full Kits and building guidance by Dr. Wiener Serge Modular is a legendary
and incredibly inventive name in modular synthesis that has inspired hoards of modular and synthesizer manufactures in the years since it's inception.
Incredibly music, and incredibly practical, Serge is one of the most unique and distinguishable systems both in sound and use. 

Originally invented and developed in California as a "Synthesizer for the People" by Serge Tcherepnin, the system is now available in Eurorack and
original format from Random*Source under license and in cooperation with Serge. With the help of an experienced Serge Builder in the DIY workshop
you can now enter the Serge world and build a Serge module.
