Macedonian-born composer, violinist and educator Trandafilovski presents on "Instrumental technique and “integrated extended sound” as compositional tools".
Macedonian-born composer, violinist and educator Mihailo Trandafilovski presents this evening talk. His experience as a violinist / performer has fundamentally influenced his compositional approach and language. This is reflected in an effort to both parallel and combine organised and intuitive approaches, on several levels. In this talk, he will specifically focus on elements such as physical aspects of sound, tuning, and harmonic systems (including just intonation, microtonality and harmonic series). Traditional understanding (primarily amongst performers) of concepts such as “sound quality” and “extended techniques” can be challenged by exploring such aspects in new contexts. In particular, Trandafilovski is interested in exploring “inherent sonorities”, based on instrument construction and sound production, which enhance, rather than deflect from, idiomatic instrumental sound and technique, and thus open a new field for investigation.
This talk will also include examples from several of his string, piano, woodwind and vocal pieces to illustrate such areas of interest.
This talk is free and open to all.
