Novikoff-Makowski Sound Project

23 March 20:15

ORDER TICKETS

NovikoffMakowski sound project is a new collaboration between the young composer, performer improvisor Stanislav Makovsky and a multidisciplinary saxophone player Evgeny Novikov. Both graduates of Conservatoire de Paris, they naturally started to experiment and improvise with sounds at the live electronics studio at the Conservatoire, in early 2017. After having recorded a few sets of improvisation for saxophone and electronics, by using Ableton live, Max MSP, GRM and IRCAM tools, musicians have discovered a huge palette of sounds and possibilities for this setting: the saxophone overtones and flexibility of sound permitted to create original material for the live performances.

Novikoff-Makowski played their debut concert at the Gaudeamus Music Week in Utrecht (the Netherlands) in September 2017. AIt was well received by the audience and professionals. The project is based on the prerecorded elements, that were evolved and transformed during the performances in such a way that the piece was taking a very different directions in terms of acoustics, style, sound and rhythm. As a crossover project, it observes classical contemporary saxophone techniques, free improvisation, jazz-rock, techno and more.

Tickets: € 18,50/€ 13,50 with discount if ordered online (Stadspas/65+/CJP/Studentenpas)
At the entrance on the day of the concert: € 19,50/€ 14,50

Code & Klavier –  the Toets des Tijds!

A unique program with an array of music that’s played, coded and the combination of the two.

 

This concert is presented by  Off<>zz, Felipe Ignacio Noriega (live coding) and Anne Veinberg (piano), which is an ensemble which draws from classical music practices  to morph live coding and piano performance into a ‘beyond’ classical music experience.  Since March 2017, Off<>zz has been developing the CodeKlavier,  a project supported by the Creative Industries Fund NL, which enables the pianist to live code through playing the piano. The concert will also feature one the Netherland’s finest live electronics performers, Robert van Heumen.

 

In this concert, Off<>zz will perform the opening set. Starting with a solo by live coding wizard Felipe Ignacio Noriega and continued with fresh and alternative approaches to piano and live coding music creation.  This will be followed by John Cage’s iconic 4’33’’ and a selection of shorter piano works  by Cowell, Wolpe, Rautavaara and Collins.

 

After the break, they will present their CodeKlavier project. Anne will first perform “hello world”,  winner of the Conlon competition 2017, where the pianist live codes a toy piano sampler. This will be followed by Motippets, a work that combines musical motifs and code snippets as a means of musical programming.  

Finally, Off<>zz will be joined by Robert van Heumen for an action-packed set of live coding, live sampling and live piano playing that  will be a feast of virtuosity on all keys.
