Transatlantyk Instant Composition Contest™
Łódź (Poland) is host of Transatlantyk Instant Composition Contest™ (TICC). It is a unique and prestigious international event – one of a kind simultaneous composition contest based on the idea of improvisation created synchronously to the image on the screen.
The TICC is a remarkable event initiated by Oscar winning composer Jan A.P. Kaczmarek.
Young artists who have a talent for improvisation and expressing emotions through music will find an extraordinary challenge here. They will watch a short movie material and then, a minute later on stage, in front of the audience they will create a composition to accompany the movie. The skill requires extraordinary musical and emotional sensitivity as well as an exceptional technical proficiency.
