Activities of the composers published by the MIC​.​PT
Fernando C. Lapa

The piece Say beau-tiful (2002) for per-cussion septet by Fernando C. Lapa – composer published by the MIC.PT – will be performed on October 4 in the context of the NanoDrumming Academy, an initiative of the Drumming – Percussion Group, at the Faculty of Engineering of the Uni-versity of Porto. “Built upon the U2 song Beautiful Day, Say Beautiful is neither a rock theme nor a pure contemporary music piece (independently of the meaning usually given to these labels). In other words: without nostalgia or con-straints; with a positive approach. Say Beautiful is dedi-cated to the Drumming – says Fernando C. Lapa.
New Socres on the MIC.PT

From now on the MIC.PT publishes on-line seven new scores by five Portu-guese composers: Cristalofonia (2017) for soprano and electronics by Carlos Alberto Augusto; Illuminations (2016) for orchestra by Miguel Azguime; All-in-one (2010) for ensemble and electronics and Instante (2011) for orchestra and electronics by Carlos Caires; Pranto (1984/88) for wind ensemble, piano and double bass and Madrugada (1999) for eight mixed voices by Amílcar Vasques-Dias; as well as manchmal ist es immer so (2018/17) for clarinet, violin and piano by [ka'mi]. Presently the MIC.PT Score Catalogue includes 981 works.
Miguel Azguime

Feedback Orders is the title of a new work for recorders and electronics by Miguel Azguime, which will be pre-miered in the context of the recital by António Carrilho entitled ORBIS TIBIAE, the other side of the sound, on October 30 at the O’culto da Ajuda in Lisbon. The concert will be broadcast directly on the Antena 2, thus initiating a cycle of events with exceptional performers presenting the music of our time. “My music practice is intimately linked to reasoning applied to creation, to the search for the most adequate answer (frequently by means of considerable analysis and research) to the problems posed by a determined morpho-temporal configuration or context. Nevertheless, at the moment of starting a new piece I always put myself in front of the «void» of a blank page (or the «emptiness» of silence), listening to the «appearance» of a significant sound object or its idea” – says Miguel Azguime in the interview for the MIC.PT from July 2016.
Christopher Bochmann

The piece Canzona IV​ (2014) for 16 wind instruments by Chris-topher Bochmann will be performed on October 26 and 27 at the Music College of Lisbon (ESML) by the ESML Wind Orchestra, conducted by Alberto Roque. "I feel very close to Bach's music: I identify myself absolutely with the idea that music is either an extension or expression of life. I have no doubts when it comes to the mutual influence between the various aspects of my musical activity. The need to define things, which teaching requires, helps me in developing compositional technique in a more conscious way" – says this composer published by the MIC.PT in the MIC.PT interview from June 2014.
Daniel Schvetz

The work Três moti-vos (2017) by Daniel Schvetz will be pre-miered on October 30 at the O’culto da Ajuda in Lisbon, dur-ing the recital by António Carrilho (recorders). “The title Três motivos makes reference to the characteristics of the work’s each mini-section with recognizable stamp and identity” – explains this composer published by the MIC.PT. “It also refers to the three motives, which led me to compose this piece: the artist to whom it’s dedicated; the marvellous technical, expressive and sonic capacities of the recorders; and the need to be carried away by the lightness of almost improvising, without any plan or preconceived idea, a mo-tive lacking motive, just because, as simple as that”.
Igor C. Silva

The work Sweet Data (no amnesia)​ (2018) for percussion en-semble and electro-nics, commissioned to Igor C. Silva by the Drumming – Per-cussion Group, will be premiered on October 5 by the students of the NanoDrumming Academy at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto. In the second half of the month another work by this composer published by the MIC.PT, Your Trash (2016) for percussion, electronics and video, will be performed at the Musicacoustica – Beijing 2018 Festival (CIME – ICEM 2018), taking place between October 22 and 28 at the Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing. “It’s impossible to be isolated from the massive quantity of stimuli, to which we are exposed. Wherever I am, technology, noises, compulsive marketing and glob-alization invade me. From the moment that a composer has contact with these surroundings, never again does he or she listen to the world in the same way" – says Igor C. Silva in the interview for the MIC.PT from September 2015.
Luís Antunes Pena

On October 7 the piece Konvolut for five instruments and electronics by Luís Antunes Pena, will be premiered in Ger-many by the Horizonte Ensemble in the context of the 9. Hörfest Neue Musik in Detmold. Commissioned to this composer published by the MIC.PT by the Sond’Ar-te Electric Ensemble with the support of the Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation, the piece Konvolut (2014/15) is constructed of a collection of audio samples from various origins – urban environments and videos found on the inter-net. This month, on October 29, another work by Luís Antunes Pena – an der grenze, das gedächtnis for double bass, premiered in September by Florientin Ginot – will be presented in the context of Egbert Hiller’s programme of the German DLF radio. Additionally, on October 31 the LTK4 venue in Cologne will inaugurate the exhibition Open Call – Schausammlung 2018, which includes Luís Antunes Pena’s installation for eight megaphones and 16 relays.
João Pedro Oliveira

In the second part of this month João Pedro Oliveira is invited composer at the L'Espace du Son festival, which will be taking place between October 24-28 in Brussels. In the context of the event this composer published by the MIC.PT is jury member at the final of the 10th Métamorphoses Competition and he will lead an audio-visual composition masterclass. The festival’s programme also includes two monographic concerts with João Pedro Oliveira’s music, and the premiere of his work La mer émeraude. This month the composer is also honoured artist at the 5th Contemporary Music Biennale of Mato Grosso (October 21-28, Brazil), and his work Tesseract will be presented in the context of three events: on October 5 at the Muslab Festival (City of Mexico); at the Psychedelic Film and Music Festival (October 1-7, New York); and on October 14 at the Matera Intermedia Festival (Italy), where the work received the Award of Distinction. Another João Pedro Oliveira’s piece Angel Rock is included on the CD Experiência by the Abstrai Ensemble, which was released last month.
Pedro Amaral

In October Pedro Amaral – composer published by the MIC.PT – will be lecturer and con-ductor in the context of the cycle Music and Science, organized by the Ministry of Science and Superior Education in partnership with the AMEC (Music, Education and Culture Association) – Metropolitana. In this context Pedro Amaral will lead the conference Science and Art in Music Composition at two different venues – Arts and Performance Centre of Portalegre – Polytechnic Institute of Portalegre (October 11), as well as at the Auditorium no. 1 of the Polytechnic Institute of Beja (October 12). He will also conduct the Metropolitan Orchestra of Lisbon in the performance of Symphony no. 9 in E minor, op. 95, From the New Wolrd by Antonín Dvořák.
Vítor Rua

On October 5 at the OUT.FEST 2018 in Barreiro, the Telectu with Vítor Rua (com-poser published by the MIC.PT) and António Duarte (ar-chiver and friend of the duo, founded in 1982 by Jorge Lima Barreto and Vítor Rua) will present the Belzebu, iconic project in the context of sonic exploration in Portugal. On the next day at the Gil Vicente Theatre in Coimbra the duo will accompany the performance by Manoel Barbosa with the Telectu Anthology. Still this month the musicians will participate in the Semibreve 2018 Festival in Braga – in the Conversation at the Casa Rolão and the performance at the Circo Theatre (October 25-26). In September the ReR released the new work by Vítor Rua & The Metaphysical Angels: When Better isn’t Quite Good Enough.

In the 1st Person . Jorge Peixinho

Third programme of a new cycle of programmes entitled Na 1.ª Pessoa (In the 1st Person) in the context of the radio broadcast produced by the Miso Music Portugal and the MIC.PT for the Antena 2. Na 1.ª Pessoa is a cycle of interviews to Portuguese composers of the 20th and 21st centuries, initiated in September. The cycle continues with a historic interview to Jorge Peixinho, realised in 1992 and conducted by Miguel Azguime, Música Hoje’s host. Simultaneously, this broadcast will include recordings of music by this Portuguese composer of the 20th century.

In the 1st Person . Hugo Vasco Reis

Na 1.ª Pessoa, the cycle of meetings with Portuguese composers – who will be interviewed by Pedro Boléo in order to reveal us various aspects of their sonic universe – continues with an interview to Hugo Vasco Reis. The starting point for this young creator has been the Portuguese guitar, yet he has taken it to completely unexpected areas within contem-porary music. Composer of electroacoustic, chamber music and solo works, Hugo Vasco Reis has also been interested in acousmatic creation. Apart from the interview, the programme also gives the opportunity to listen to Hugo Vasco Reis’ music through recordings of his own choice.

Recital by António Carrilho

On October 30 at O’culto da Ajuda in Lisbon, António Carrilho (recorders) will give a recital whose pro-gramme will include two works by the composers published by the MIC.PT: the world premieres of Três motivos (2017) by Daniel Schvetz and Feedback Orders (2018) by Miguel Azguime; as well as pieces by César Viana (premiere of Hamelin from 2012), Karen van Steenhoven, Thérèse Brenet, Katharine Rawdon and Markus Zahnhausen. Within this performance entitled ORBIS TIBIAE, the other side of the sound, António Carrilho continues his exploration of an instrument typically associated with the baroque period, yet more and more appreciated by contemporary composers. The included works – many of them dedicated to this recorder virtuoso – present a variety of styles and inspirations in the context of a “journey” through new sounds performed on an instrument of ancient origin.
Contracello Duo

On October 22 at the Department of Communication and Art of the University of Aveiro (Festivais de Outono '18), the Duo Contracello – Miguel Rocha (cello) and Adriano Aguiar (double bass) – will give a concert with a programme com-posed of works by the six composers published by the MIC.PT: Clotilde Rosa, Ângela Lopes, Isabel Soveral, Jaime Reis e João Pedro Oliveira.
