During the Gaudeamus Sessies we present try-outs of our own productions, previews of the Gaudeamus Muziekweek and work-in-progress by young ensembles and (yet) unknown composers. The programme of this 19th edition includes first presentations by Fors Seulement, Microcakes and Aurélie Lierman.
Composer Manuel Sánchez García made an impression in 2015 with two works in the Gaudeamus Muziekweek. Vulnus is a collaboration between recorder player / singer Irene Sorozábal, singer / composer Georgi Sztojanov and composer Manuel Sánchez García. Together they form Fors Seulement. Vulnus is, according to the makers, an exploration of the power of vulnerability. Vulnus will be developed in three residences at Gaudeamus and in this Session the first results are shared with the public.
With Microcakes, four students from HKU Music and Technology develop their audio-culinary installation Microchaps. With the Klinklaar foundation, they conduct research into the relationship between sound, taste and food in order to shape it into a playful interactive experience. Join Microcakes’ Microchaps where your senses are stimulated by eccentric flavors and innovative sounds.
Aurélie Lierman collaborates with But What About (BWA), a young and promising ensemble for new music in The Hague. Language and communication are the common thread in their new work (Non) Humanism & Animism. In this piece Lierman figures out how forms of animism help visible and invisible worlds to connect, decode and translate. Host of this Gaudeamus Session is Jochem van der Heide and he will ask Aurelie all about this new project.
