Apartment House is very excited to be working on a new Sound and Music Embedded Project organised in collaboration with the Adam Mickiewicz Institute as part of the Polska Music Programme.
Two artist/composers, Michał Libera and Robert Piotrowicz, will be working with Apartment House on creating 2 new works for premiere in 2017.
Michał Libera will concentrate on a complex, sociological interpretation of a rare work by American fluxus artist George Brecht, his Symphony No. 5. Robert Piotrowicz will compose a new chamber work incorporating the use of low-fi feed-back devices and live instruments
