Baltic Musicological Conference 2020

On 10–12 September 2020, the Department of Music History at the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre, the Lithuanian-Polish research project “Music of Change: Expression of Liberation in Polish and Lithuanian Music Before and After 1989” and the Musicological Section of the Lithuanian Composers’ Union organize the Baltic Musicological Conference 2020 “MUSIC AND CHANGE BEFORE AND AFTER 1990”.  

CONFERENCE PROGRAMME

There is a possibility to attend the event virtually via ZOOM and Youtube.

 
 
Also sessions from the Room 1 will be streamed on Youtube channel. Links for each day: 

 

The employment of music as a form of cultural opposition and transformative power is a multifunctional process that implies an extension of the thematic and disciplinary borders to the complex relations of the music’s cultural, socio-economic, and political contexts. However, such approach requires to provide a space for deep engagements in music and its various worlds overcoming a simplified understanding of musical practices as a reflection of social structures and political processes. As Jacques Attali writes on the relationship between music and societal structures, music “makes audible the new world that will gradually become visible, that will impose itself and regulate the order of things; it is not only the image of things, but the transcending of the everyday, the herald of the future” (Attali 1985).

Baltic Singing Revolution – “revolution by singing and smiling” (Heinz Valk 1988) – is a widely known example of the public expressive cultural practice which had a stimulating effect on cultural imagination and political change. Remembering the year 1990, so important but not limited to national histories of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, the Baltic musicological conference 2020 aims to acquire new knowledge and a deeper understanding of the ways in which the musical expression of liberation and musicians’ networks contributed to political and cultural change before and after the end of the Cold War. In what ways the musical practices contributed to formation, negotiation and transformation of sociocultural identities and changing collectivities? What has been the relationship between the processes of cultural and political change before and after 1990? What were prominent ideas, landmark cultural texts and influential individuals who have had a formative and transformative power in these processes? To address these issues, as well as any other questions and topics related to the 20th–21st-century music and change in the widest sense, we invite the proposals for the Baltic musicological conference 2020, to be held at the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre in Vilnius 10–12 September 2020. The conference will include international guest speakers Kevin C. Karnes (Emory University), Olga Manulkina (St Petersburg State University), Gintautas Mažeikis (Vytautas Magnus University) and Peter J. Schmelz (Arizona State University).

THE PHANTOM OF NORMALITY 
Based on Saara Turunen’s play of the same title

“I have just one wish in life. And that is that I could be ordinary, just a normal person. And that my family would be ordinary too, just a normal family. That we wouldn’t stand out from the crowd, that we’d be ordinary, really, just normal.”

Saara Turunen’s play The Phantom of Normality (2016) explores the everyday life of typical Finnish families. It presents a gloomy take on family traditions, relationships, communication habits, secret desires, small and clichéd interpersonal issues and conflicts. In the center of the play are frigidity and short-sightedness toward one another.

Director Antanas Obcarskas: “Saara Tununen text quietly and disheartenedly buries the normal family and the last sincere person, while in the performance we find ourselves in the near future and bury the last family of bees. Human families are long gone from the surface of the earth. But could anything more normal than bees exist in nature? I cannot think of anything more ordinary. Unfortunately, I hardly resemble them, as the general political correctness prevents me from doing as little as stinging. The bees, despite being a perfectly independent, yet fragile organism, are going extinct. Family is a strong word but is as a concept becoming an increasingly rare occurrence in my environment. In the future presented in our performance, families are completely extinct and all is left of them is a bitter set of memories, recorded by the author of the play… I must ask: In the future, will one mock our rushed and resolute dissociation from each other? Why do we feel the urgency to return to our home and lock the door to be with only ourselves?”

REQUIEM FOR A WOMAN 
Based on Orange Peel by Maja Pelević (N-16)

The European Gender Equality Index data by European Institute for Gender Equality announced on 15 October, 2019 indicate that since 2005 the Gender Equality Index in Lithuania has not increased but rather decreased by 0.3 points, and since 2015, the score decreased by 1.3, thus making Lithuania the only country in the EU where the field of gender equality has seen no progress.

The performance is based on the play by Maja Pelević that wasn‘t previously staged in Lithuania. It demonstrates the fragmented female journey, her transformation for a girl to a woman, from a woman to a mother, from a mother to a victim, etc. The main character is surrounded by archetypical, stereotypical and absurd people who live in a patriarchal world that is put in motion and sustained not only by men but also women who out of momentum, convenience or safety still believe in woman’s position as the weaker sex, as her position of being just a woman.

With the faltering of patriarchal model of the world, active women break out into all fields, but this process is still not meaningful enough to be represented in the statistics, and the feminist discourse is often rejected as an integral part of our natural reality. The performance suggests forgiveness to the woman and proposes rethinking the guilt that we put on her – for tasting the forbidden fruit, for condemning us all to suffer on earth as a consequence to her action, for being too active, too masculine, too strong, having cellulite, talking too loud or perhaps not wanting to bear children.

CALAMARI UNION 2. MEGASTAR 
Inspired by Aki Kaurismäki’s film Calamari Union

The performance is inspired by the movie Calamari Union created by the famous Finnish film director Aki Kaurismäki. It presents an absurd journey in the streets of Helsinki. A few men named Frank decide to travel from their residential area Kallio to the other end of the city, residential are Eira. These working class men, sympathizing with the beatnik movement, move from the industrial Kallio to the luxurious Eira in groups, hoping to find paradise there. The majority of Franks die during their travel through the city and only two Franks reach the desired coast. However, upon reaching Eira, they discover that the area is polluted and crowded with houses – they are too late.

Calamari Union 2. Megastar is to some extent the second part of the movie and the version of such journey today. In the performance, these characters’ children are trying to come back, as, according to their dads, life is more colorful and fulfilling there. The children of working class men grew up in a liberal, increasingly progressive world but now they feel unhappy for living conditions are too reliable; They seek for entertainment, dirt and adventures. The journey however takes an unexpected turn when it turns out that the ship sails not only through space but also through time. Eira, at the end of Kaurismäki’s film, does not meet the Franks’ expectations. Nowadays, we call it gentrification – cities and its parts change appearance and people who created an authentic vibe of the place are urged out of their home by those more solvent, more influential members of society. The performance offers to consider opportunities of the gentrification of ideas. Would we find what we expected if we came back to wherever we wanted to?

JACKIE 
Inspired by Elfriede Jelinek’s play of the same title

How often do you think about death? The death of your neighbors, relatives or bypassers? What about your own death? Do you give thought to what does life look in the afterlife? What will you meet there? How will you look?

This performance is an attempt to create an illusion of life after death. It is based on the play “Jackie” by the Austrian novelist and dramaturg Elfriede Jelinek which tells a story of a woman who was observed by the public: her gestures, mannerisms and actions were widely discussed and commented in the media, her image formed fashion and culture trends as well as the so-called good taste. The play uses biographical facts to reveal the woman’s inner feelings, experiences and their consequences when she was put under a magnifying glass and people knew and engaged in the stories of her husband’s adventures with other women, her miscarriage, the traps setup by her husband‘s family, etc.

Society’s pressure caused Jackie stress, fear and anxiety. It crammed her into a role that she tried to fulfill in the fear of tainting her husband’s well-crafted image and status as well as hoping to uphold the portrait of the youngest First Lady – Jacqueline Kennedy.

Despite the fact that the dramaturgy of the performance unveils the story of a well-renowned woman, we are interested in what do we take from it? How important is one‘s status or position on this Earth, how important is our work and health that we sell or just give away. What is left after us?

This performance does not reflect reality. We strived to create a fiction and an illusion. The artistic team based their creative research on various comments, personal experiences, inspirations, metaphors, imagination and fantasy.

THE PELICAN (N–14) 
Based on August Strindberg’s play of the same title

August Strindberg’s late work – the collection of Chamber plays – consists of four plays created for the Intima Teater in 1907 – Thunder in the Air, The Burnt Side, The Ghost Sonata and The Pelican. In the chamber plays playwright shifts the action weight of drama from superficial to the most refined circumstances, reminiscent the existence of metaphysical laws – powerful actions beyond the physical limits of the action of the drama. The playwright is also developing a new model through which he intends to communicate the prospects of people’s lives in a different way.

Pelican examines the perception of the world as a network of illusions and lies, analyzes the personal and environmental events of the characters, which determine the desire to live not in the present and future, but in the image of an idealized past. Family – formation and development of this social construct – is analyzed in detail. The performance analyzes and questions the concept of family necessity, offering the idea that every generation inherits the worst qualities from their predecessors. It can be perceived as the cause of a network of illusions and lies. These processes form the medium for the meaningless development of everyday existence, as if falling into an endless cycle. The never-ending wheel spins, accelerates and leads to a dubious future.

Live stream concert “Quarantine Sessions #8”

Tonight at 24:00 Lithuanian time – from 16 to 17 May – composer, head of the LMTA Music Innovation and Studies Center, Mantautas Krukauskas will play in the live stream concert Quarantine Sessions #8. The concert is organised by Stanford University (Palo Alto, USA). 
 
Quarantine Sessions #8
A Distributed Electroacoustic Network Improvisation
 
 
The Coronavirus Crisis has changed our lives and we are in the midst of a long period without concerts as we knew them. In addition to the problem of large audiences, the regulations also make it ‘virtually’ impossible for musicians to get together, to rehearse, or perform. However, many technologies and solutions are already available, helping us to find new ways of collaborating and transporting our work to audiences. 
 
In the past few weeks, we have been programming, testing, and rehearsing in an online environment between California, which is facing a ‘shelter-in-place’ situation, Berlin (DE) with strict ‘Kontakt- und Ausgangsbeschränkungen’, and Ghent (BE). Each Saturday afternoon we are presenting a concert that connects six musicians from these locations and guests from other places to each other. The sessions are broadcast live with audio and video feeds from each site. 
 
Guests:
Matt Hughes, interactive visuals (Sydney, AU)
Mantautas Krukauskas, live electronics (Vilnius, LT)
 
Performers:
Constantin Basica (Palo Alto, CA)
Chris Chafe (Woodside, CA)
Henrik von Coler (Berlin, DE)
Fernando Lopez-Lezcano (San Carlos, CA)
Juan Parra (Ghent, BE)
Klaus Scheuermann (Berlin, DE) 
 
The ‘Quarantine Sessions’ are realized using free and open source technologies, which can be adopted by anyone:
