Ausschreibung: impuls MinutenKonzerte

Zum 10. Mal veranstaltet impuls eine ganztägige Tour durch Grazer Galerien mit kurzen Konzerten. Über die Jahre hinweg hat das Format ungeheuer positive Rückmeldung von Publikum, Presse und nicht zuletzt von den beteiligten Künstlerinnen und Künstlerinnen selbst mit sich gebracht. So wurde es zu einem fixen Bestandteil der Grazer Musikszene. Der nächste Galerienrundgang mit Musik ist für den 26. Mai 2018, 10 bis 22 Uhr, geplant und wird von Workshops von Mitgliedern des Klangforum Wien begleitet. Interessierte Musikerinnen und Musiker (lebend in oder nahe Österreich) sind eingeladen, beim Call einzureichen.

impuls is, for the 10th time, hosting a full-day gallery tour with short concerts. Over the years, the format has received tremendously positive responses from audiences and the press, alike, as well as from the participating artists themselves, and has become a popular fixture in Graz’s music scene.

Young musicians and/or students (due to organizational and cost-related reasons, currently living in Austria or close by) are again invited to participate in 2018.

The music and gallery tour 2018 starts on May 26 at around 10 a.m. and will, in approx. 1,5-hour intervals, be played successively in galleries in Graz (Blazek, Forum Stadtpark, kunst.wirt.schaft, esc, Minoriten galleries, MUWA). The exact schedule for rehearsals, sound check/arrival and further information about the preceding workshop is still tba.

Pro gallery is a designated concert length of about 30 minutes. The Forum Stadtpark will be the final venue where, till about 10 p.m., several program points will take place. The concerts in the respective galleries are composed of various shorter program items, as well as different musicians/formations. The compositions are to be selected from the fields of modern classical, new and contemporary music, and even improvisational works can be considered. Due to spatial restrictions, the formations should be in the range of solo to quartet. Larger formations, as well as those including percussion instruments and special technology (unless provided by the artists themselves), must be discussed with and agreed upon by impuls beforeh and. Unfortunately there are no pianos available in the galleries.
