The impuls project „Text im Klang“, realised in cooperation with the literature department of Kulturzentrum bei den Minoriten in Graz, is heading towards its fourth edition. Meant as a laboratory, in which medial interlacings with a focal point on impulse are put into practice, composers draw their inspiration from literature.

This time impuls commissions new works from the young composers Feliz Anne Reyes Macahis, Yulan Yu, Joan Gómez Alemany and Pedro Berardinelli, who are taking their initial impulses from the writings and specially from a personal exchange with the author Thomas Antonic.

Upcoming March the commissions will be realised by Ensemble Schallfeld and interwoven with a reading-performance of the author contributing new texts as well.

Please find some more (medium term) dates:

The next edition of impuls MinuteConcerts in Graz is scheduled for spring 2020 – we will keep you updated per newsletter and post a call for contributions this autumn.

The next edition of the impuls Academy in Graz is planned for the period +- 15.-28.2.2021, and so is another edition of the impuls Composition Competition. In both cases registrations will not be possible before spring 2020, the exact dates will then be published on both our homepage and per newsletter of course.

Please also note that the impuls office will not be staffed throughout the summer this year. So please excuse if we might not get back to you as quickly as usual. In case you do not read from us within 3 weeks, please resend your message to make sure we receive it. Wishing you a great summer to come as well!
