Jan Schacher ap­pointed Pro­fes­sor of Music Tech­nol­ogy at the Sibelius Acad­emy

Swiss-born Jan Schacher is an artist-researcher, instrumentalist, composer and digital artist who, among other things, studies how a musician’s body functions as a resonator and focal site for sound and presence. Schacher is interested in the spaces, structures, and processes of sound experience. In addition to practicing art, he has worked as a researcher at the University of the Arts Zurich and led research projects that address, among other things, musical gesture, immersive media, environmental and surround sound from an art and research perspective.

New CD Marco Fusi

Marco Fusi's new album "Giacinto Scelsi - works for violin and for viola", published by KAIROS, presents listeners with the results of a newly elaborated performance practice of these works, based on archival research, in-depth audio analysis, computer-generated animated scores and extensive exploration of instrumental improvisatory techniques. The liner notes accompanying the album offer detailed insights into the research process leading up to the recording.

This publication is the result of Marco Fusi's PhD research at the Koninklijk Conservatorium Antwerpen and the UAntwerpen (docARTES programme), with the support of KCA's research cluster CREATIE and Orpheus Instituut.

ODC 2020 'Imagining the Non-Present' postponed

The organising committee of the Orpheus Doctoral Conference 2020 decided to postpone the conference until autumn 2020 due to the ongoing global public health crisis.

Upon discussing the most equitable path forward in this largely unprecedented scenario, the committee has decided upon the following course of action. New dates will be announced as soon as possible, after which we will re-open the call to additional proposals through late June. All current proposals will be automatically rolled over into the new pool to be reviewed over the summer alongside any new proposals. Everyone involved has been contacted personally. Any applicants from the first round who are unable to participate on the new dates should contact us to withdraw their proposals. We will then announce our decisions on final presenters at the end of the summer.
