1.) impuls . Text im Klang


On March 27th, 2020 four new impuls commissions will be premiered by Ensemble Schallfeld in the fourth edition of „Text im Klang“ in Graz, Austria. This time Feliz Anne Reyes Macahis, Yulan Yu, Joan Gómez Alemany and Pedro Berardinelli referred to Thomas Antonic, taking impulses for their new pieces from a personal exchange with the Austrian author and a.o. his specific writing methods – and vice versa. Partly the new works will be interwoven with a live-reading-performance of new texts by Thomas Antonic. The process and results will be discussed in a Discourse : Open Brunch the following day.

Registration for the next impuls Academy (coming along with the impuls Festival again) will only start later in spring (we will keep you posted), but please save the date already if interested to apply as follows: 17.2.-1.3.2021 (day of arrival respectively departure).

This next edition will welcome both composers and already existing ensembles as participants. We kindly ask all composers interested to wait for the official start of application, however we would like to invite young ensembles to get in touch with us already by now to take evidence of their general interest to participate, discuss offers, possibilities, expectations, …, and further procedures.




Many thanks to our Cooperation-Partners so far …
