ARTEría Association for arts and culture
the Historiographic Archive of Raffaele Giura Longo - Matera
and MORGAD Association (Paris)
have organized Concavo & Convesso
a competition for composers, to write works on the text of
by Raffaele Giura Longo.
Three international composers and one local composer will be selected by an international jury and commissioned to make works that may include all or part of the text by Raffaele Giura Longo, or that simply may be inspired by it. The work may be purely musical, or may also include performative elements.
The final works will be performed in Matera, by the six performers ensemble Concavo&Convesso, whose practice is rooted in experimental music and performance, contemporary musical theatre, minimalism, and the interpretation of open works and graphic scores.
The competition is aimed towards composers whose work may be broadly categorised as experimental, or having roots in that tradition.
