Call for proposals SAR conference 2016

This year's SAR conference will address writing in relation to artistic research from these perspectives: writing as practice and practice as writing. How do both writing and practice operate as ways to convey new knowledge, understanding and experiences by which we (re)organize our lives? In workshops, demonstrations, performances, discussions, open sessions and on-the-spot encounters we will contribute to the ongoing development of the relationship between practice and writing in the context of artistic research. Contributions may be submitted until 11 January 2016 .


Red Sofa PM-concert Lokhorstkerk, 26 november 2015

De Rotterdamse concertzaal De Doelen heeft een serie genaamd Red Sofa. De Red Sofa verleent zijn naam aan concerten met eigentijdse kunstmuziek: onbekend werk van hedendaagse componisten. Voor de concerten nemen musici en experts plaats op het Red Sofa om het publiek voorafgaand aan het concert de muziek uit te leggen en deze zo toegankelijker te maken. Het aanstaande concert van Practicum Musicae op donderdag 26 oktober past dezelfde formule toe als de Rotterdamse Red Sofa-concerten. Onbekend werk van onbekende componisten zoals Fernando Sor en Pete Rose zullen in de Lokhorstkerk te horen zijn en vooraf toegelicht worden door de musici.
