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: 
JackTrip (audio)
Jitsi (video)
OBS (streaming)

LMTA presents INTERMUSIC project results

May 14-15 of 2020, the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre (LMTA) takes part in the international scientific conference “Teaching Music Online in Higher Education” and presents INTERMUSIC project results. The Conference, organized by the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music (Australia), will be virtual because of COVID-19 quarantine.

ERASMUS+ Strategic Partnership project INTERMUSIC aims to develop digital skills in the field of music higher education, by 1) implementing an online shared platform for the distance learning dedicated to performing practices, theoretical and compositional courses; 2) designing specialized music training pathways that integrate lessons from different European music institutions, with sustainable development over time; 3) understanding the most demanding aspects of remote music interaction and communication in the context of chamber music, instrumental and vocal practice.

The LMTA was responsible for development of the platform and digital competence training of teachers from partner institutions. Teaching staff of the Academy participated in the content development and testing of the blended and online modules: Assoc. Prof. Dr. Indrė Baikštytė – Chamber Music, Prof. Algirdas Janutas – Vocal Phonetics  in the Foreign Languages module, Lect. Dr. Jonas Jurkūnas and Lect. Mantautas Krukauskas – Composition and Assoc. Prof. Dr. Audra Versekėnaitė-Eftymiou – Music Theory. Head of Music Innovation Studies Centre Mantautas Krukauskas will be a presenter from the LMTA in the Conference in Melbourne.

The workshop will feature the project’s highlights, along with concrete experiences of blended learning, collected after three years of collaborations among the five partners, Giuseppe Verdi Music Conservatoire in Milano, Polytechnic University in Milano, LMTA in Vilnius, RDAM in Copenhagen, and AEC in Brussels.

WORKSHOP TITLE in the Conference: The EU project INTERMUSIC (Interactive Environment for Music Learning and Practicing, 2017-2020)  “What we learned, what we produced, where we are heading to”.

International Music Theory Conference “Principles of Music Composing”

On 18–20 November 2020, the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre and the Lithuanian Composers’ Union organize the 20th International Music Theory Conference “Principles of Music Composing: Phenomenon of Teleology”. 

LITHUANIAN

Teleology embraces the phenomena that each sort of processual art deals with: the way a work evolves over time. In other words, it focuses on the final goal or purpose (Greek telos meaning “end, purpose”) as well as the course towards that goal (Heinrich Schenker). The Western music tradition has established musical forms implementing paradigmatic models of particular teleological strategies (sonata form as a pinnacle of this trend of thought), often approaching the final cadence as a complete fulfilment of a persistently pursued goal. However, evolving trajectories may seem not so obvious when we step out this conventional mental framework and face the cases of non-Western tradition or compositional inventions of the 20th –21st centuries. Static, meditative, monolithic, drone, minimalistic, instant, aleatoric musical iterations seem to, at least partly, evade a clearly defined, commonly identifiable telos.

So, what can actually serve as impetus to propel the processual flow of music? What types of developmental strategies are feasible in the light of plural cultural and ideological co-existence of the 21st century? What basis substantiates the widely established or alternative developmental models? These and more teleological issues will be thoroughly addressed in the conference “Principles of Music Composing: Phenomenon of Teleology”.

The following sub-topics are suggested to disclose the subject: 

I. Theoretical and historical perspectives 

  1. Inter-scholarly (philosophical, psychoanalytic, psychophysiological, metaphysical, etc.) and musicological (Schenkerian, Post-Schenkerian, etc.) approach to teleology.
  2. Historical perspective of teleological phenomena. 
  3. Links between teleology and the related concepts (dramaturgy, development, narrativity, directionality, orientation, expectation, temporality). Types of teleological strategies (culmination, reprise, balancing, elision, etc.). 
  4. Teleology as an inherent phenomenon of a musical work itself or as a mode of listening (objective vs. subjective perspective). 

II. Teleological issues in contemporary contexts 

      5. Teleological strategies and alternatives in contexts of contemporary composition. 
      6. Different teleological prerogatives in regard of distinct musical parameters (pitch, rhythm, timbre, the vertical, the horizontal, the diagonal, etc.) and various types of form. 
      7. Teleological applications in regard of particular compositional techniques (modes, series, minimalism, aleatoric principles, sonorism, sound-based morphologies, electronics, etc.). 
      8. Communication issues and challenges regarding the (non-)teleological approaches of the innovative compositional practices (instant, static, monolithic, meditative, electronic music, etc.).

III. Interdisciplinary and intercultural aspects

  1. Teleological potentialities in contexts of collaboration and interrelation between different artistic fields (literature, visual arts, performing arts, etc.).
  2. Cultural plurality as a source for possible teleological alternatives. 

Paper proposals (abstract and a short biography) should be sent by email: pmc.lmta@gmail.com. The abstract must not exceed 500 words. The duration of full presentation is limited to 20–25 minutes.

The main language of the conference is English.

The deadline for proposal submissions is the 1st of September, 2020. Proposals will be reviewed by the members of the scholarly committee and all applicants will be notified of the outcome in the second half of September 2020.

The participation fee is 20 Euros.

Selected papers of the conference will be published in the annual peer reviewed scientific journal ‘Principles of Music Composing’.

Prof. dr. Pavel Puşcaş (Music Academy Cluj-Napoca, Romania)

Academy to Launch a Series of Virtual Performances

Does the announcement of quarantine mean that our life has stopped? Well, we would like to paraphrase the familiar saying and announce that we are opening a virtual window when the doors of theatres and concert halls are closed.  The Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre is now ready to share the precious archive of their best performances.  Instead of the usual monthly repertoire of live events, LMTA invites to enjoy recordings of the most compelling concerts, contests, stage performances, meetings, short films, and even watch two sets of live electronic music!

From April 3 to 30, 6 pm, TV.LMTA.LT, the Internet platform, specifically designed for that purpose, will broadcast a variety of events. IMPORTANT: the recordings of the events will only be available on the specified date and time! Don’t miss a chance to watch the event you are interested in.

The range of the genres to be offered is truly extensive: from opera, drama, dance, and film to chamber, symphonic, choral, and jazz concerts to contests, recitals, conversations, and discussions. 

LMTA Vice-Rector for Art, Prof. Dr. Ramunė Marcinkevičiūtė says: “Working on the virtual repertoire under such circumstances has been a chance to analyse the archived collection, reappreciate the recorded beauty and value of our cultural experience, and feel the strength of artistic expression the LMTA community shares.  While the quality of some recordings may not be perfect (as the events were filmed for other purposes), it is the uniqueness of the content that makes it worth seeing.   The LMTA Art Centre team is already preparing the repertoire for May, so even when the quarantine regulations become more lenient, we will still continue broadcasting.”

Тhe Virtual Programme starts оn 3 April, 6 pm, with The Most Excellent and Lamentable Plan B, a music, theatre and video performance based on Herluf Bidstrup’s caricatures, directed by Vidas Bareikis.  Composer: Rūta Vitkauskaitė, set designer:  Simona Biekšaitė, costume designer: Liuka Songailaitė, conductor: Ričardas Šumila. The première was performed on the stage of the Lithuanian National Drama Theatre in 2013 to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre (the recording was made a year later). The performance features the-then Year 2 students who are now prominent actors at Oskaras Koršunovas’ OKT Theatre and the Lithuanian National Drama Theatre: Kęstutis Cicėnas, Jonas Braškys, Laurynas Jurgelis, Gediminas Rimeika, Eimantas Pakalka, Martynas Ališauskas, Viktorija Žukauskaitė, Taura Kvietinskaitė, Greta Petrovskytė, Paulina Taujanskaitė, Kamilė Petruškevičiūtė, Gailė Butvilaitė, and others. 

On 4 April, spectators are invited to a concert by European Chamber Music Academy (ECMA) which took place on 2 October 2019 in the Trakai Castle. Mettis String Quartet (Lithuania), Erlendis Guitar Quartet (Poland, Denmark), and Malion String Quartet (Germany, Finland) will perform music by J. Haydn, J.S. Bach, L. E.J. Brouwer, L. Boccherini, E. Lecuona, and B. Bartók. 

5 April gives us a chance to revisit a conversation between pianist Petras Geniušas and philosopher Leonidas Donskis that took place in 2013 in the LMTA Great Hall within a cycle of recitals Masters in the Great Hall featuring laureates of Lithuanian National Culture and Art Awards.  Petras Geniušas performs piano sonatas by F. Schubert and S Prokofiev.

On 7 April, we can watch a performance The Lesson directed by Augustas Gornatkevičius, based on the play by E. Ionesco.  Set designer: Eglė Vitkutė, costume designer: Simona Davlidovičiūtė, composer: Jokūbas Tulaba. Actors: Kamilė Galkutė, Gabrielė Ladygaitė, Petras Šimonis. Created in 2016, the performance was filmed at LMTA Balcony Theatre in 2017.

On 9 April, we invite you to join the LMTA community in the Academy’s Great Hall and enjoy the meeting with opera soloist Asmik Grigorian. Organised on the morning of 7 September 2018, the very beginning of the academic year, the conversation took place upon the opera singer’s return to Lithuania from the Salzburg Festival where Asmik Grigorian gave a sensational performance as Salome in Romeo Castellucci’s legendary production of Strauss’s opera. Musicologist Jūratė Katinaitė hosts the conversation.

11 April invites fans of choral music to their computer screens. We will broadcast the Grand Final of 3rd Juozas Naujalis Competition for Choral Conductors (filmed on 27 October 2017 in Church of St Catherine). The choirs — LMTA mixed choir, State Choir Vilnius, Vilnius City Municipal Choir Jauna Muzika — are led by the finalists of the competition Krista Audere (Latvia, Netherlands), Jurģis Cābulis (Latvia), Linas Balandis (Lithuania), Łukasz Hermanovicz (Poland), Mantvydas Drūlia (Lithuania), Gintarė Barisaitė (Lithuania). Works by J. Naujalis, J. H. Schein, A. Bruckner, Orlando di Lasso, and other composers will be performed.

On 13 April, we will host a discussion Do Artists Need Managers? filmed at the LMTA Balcony Theatre in 2018.  The discussion features Vygintas Gasparavičius, a lecturer at LMTA Art Management Department; a performing art manager Giedrė Putramentaitė; and Julijus Grickevičius, the-then Marketing Manager at the Lithuanian National Opera and Ballet Theatre.  The event is moderated by Dominyka Murauskytė, a LMTA musicology student. 

On 15 April, let us remember the 5th International Jascha Heifetz Competition for Violinists in 2017 and enjoy the performance of the LMTA students participating in the competition — Rakelė Chijenaitė, Ieva Daugirdaitė, Konrad Levicki, Bernardas Petrauskas playing pieces by J.
