On June 18, at the Loreto Theater in Manhattan (NY), together with saxophonist Enzo Filippetti, I'll perform my composition "And I Woke up at the Darkest Dawn Ever", written for baritone and soprano saxophones with an electronic part. The concert will take place as part of the prestigious New York City Electroacoustic Music Festival (NYCEMF), starting at 8 p.m. local time. My participation in the event and trip to New York will be possible thanks to funding from the Adam Mickiewicz Institute, as part of the Polish Culture in the World program, the aim of which is to support and promote Polish culture by supporting individual participation in events abroad.

On Sunday, April 28, Radio Gdańsk will present a rebroadcast of the concert from the "aMuz on Radio Gdańsk" series, which took place last Saturday and was filled with compositions for accordion with an electronic track - including two of my pieces also. I had the pleasure of producing electronic parts in all these works, the concert was really interesting, and the performers were young musicians from different countries. If anyone hasn't heard it live and is interested, I recommend it. The rebroadcast can be listened to traditionally on the radio, but also on the internet - either in a browser (https://radiogdansk.pl/sluchaj-online/) or via any radio application.

At the invitation of the Department of Organ, Harpsichord, Accordion, Guitar, Harp and Instruments of the Stanisław Moniuszko Academy of Music in Gdańsk (Elżbieta Rosińska – thank you very much!) I'll take part in the Blended Intensive Program (BIP), an event consisting of lectures, workshops and concerts. It's a program that uses innovative learning and teaching methods, and the main goal is to implement the artistic project "Accordion + Electronics BIP", which will enable students of the Academy of Music and six partner academies to gain practical experience in a unique format. BIP is co-financed by the European Union. As part of the scientific program, on Saturday, April 20, at 3 p.m., in the Senate Hall of the Academy of Music in Gdańsk, I will present a lecture titled "Interaction between a live instrument and the electronic part on the example of accordion music - the sound perception from the points of view of the composer and performers" (the presentation will be in English). On Sunday, April 21, I will conduct workshops on electroacoustic music, addressed to young composers from various countries. I will tell you about my participation in the concert program in a moment in my next post. More information about this event can be found on the website of the Academy of Music.

I received an information that my electroacoustic composition Vanishing Signs on the Sky has been selected for performance during ICMC 2024 (The International Computer Music Conference), which this year will take place from July 7 to July 13, 2024 at the Hanyang University College of Music and its computer music studio, CREAMA (Center for Research in Electro-Acoustic Music and Audio), in cooperation with ICMA (The International Computer Music Association). ICMC is a great festival and scientific conference devoted to computer music, held every year in a different city - and probably the largest event of this type in the world. In recent years, my songs have been chosen quite regularly for this occasion.
