Fwd: Announcing the 2015 Orpheus Research Festival

The Orpheus Institute invites you to its 2015 Research Festival, the seventh edition, to take place from 30 September to 2 October.

Orpheus Research Festival 2015


The Orpheus Research Festival is our annual showcase event of research, music and ideas.

The Festival is now established as a beacon for artistic research in music and has drawn the attention of artistic researchers from all over the world. The Festival presents the full range of research at the Orpheus Institute into the processes and contexts of music making—work that addresses questions at the heart of the artist’s musical practice. Whether imagining the future or re-imagining the past, the diversity of artistic research at Orpheus sheds new light on our shared musical present.

Now in it's seventh edition, curated by theatre director and musician Johan Petri, the concerts, presentations and lectures in the Festival programme form a framework around which guests are encouraged to participate, to respond, provoke and discuss. The Orpheus Institute is pleased to welcome composer Christian Wolff as artist-in-residence at this year’s Festival.
