IMRO/MUSIC CURRENT COMMISSION 2017, FOR SILVIA ROSANI
Dublin Sound Lab is pleased to announce that the IMRO/Music Current Commission 2017 has been offered to Silvia Rosani. Silvia will collaborate with Dublin Sound Lab and pianist Xenia Pestova to develop a new work for piano and electronics which will be premiered in Dublin next year at MUSIC CURRENT 2018.
The commission is offered annually as part of the MUSIC CURRENT Festival with the newly commissioned work being prepared for the following year’s festival. Last year, Irish composer Anna Murray was awarded the 2016 commission and her new work S:NPVPNP, for harpsichord and electronics, was premiered at Smock Alley Theatre, 29 April 2018, by Dublin Sound Lab – Michael Quinn (harpsichord) and Fergal Dowling (electronics).
Fergal Dowling says, "Silvia is working on an ambitious project in collaboration with Xenia Pestova, a project that will will really challenge the performer and engage the audience in an intriguing performance paradigm. We are very excited about producing Silvia's new concept, which really extends what we normally imagine for a commission or a piano performance."
The new work will receive its premiere at Music Current Festival, April 2018.
