Transparent Sound New Music Festival

7-20 jan 2020

Does female and male music really exist? Do these only consist of female or male sounds? Is there a difference between men listening to the music of female composers and women listening to music composed by men? Is it possible to compose accompaniment to a concerto using insect sounds? And to lead a soloist of electroacoustic instruments with hand-gestures? To tell a story with beatbox sounds? Is there a musical work that has two versions, which can be performed both separately and together? How can we describe generative art, and how does it relate to gender? 

The 7th installment of the Transparent Sound New Music Festival will take place January 7-20, 2020. The programme of the two-week-long festival will include concerts – paired with interactive introductory sessions, – workshops for professionals and the public, children’s events, an international symposium, a sound-theater for the whole family, an exhibition and movie screenings. This year the festival will focus particularly on the works and performances of female musicians and composers. 

The main mission of the festival is to make the colourful and innovative world of new music approachable for everyone. For this reason we invite the audience to join the open workshops organized around the events, which will lead participants empirically into the instinctive world of music listening and orientation. The scores of the performed works will also be made available during the festival in our reading corner in the library of the Budapest Music Center.
