MANTIS FESTIVAL Presenta: INAUGURACION OFICIAL DEL CENTRO DE INVESTIGACION NOVARS, Universidad de Manchester, Reino Unido

NOVARS Research Centre for Electroacoustic Composition, Performance and Sound-art

Del 2 al 4 de Noviembre 2007

http://www.novars.manchester.ac.uk/

El centro de investigación NOVARS fue creado en Abril del 2007 y sus nuevas instalaciones de 3.2 Millones de Euros comenzaron actividades en Septiembre. El Festival Mantis celebra la inauguracion oficial del nuevo centro de Investigación y sus laboratorios.

El nombre NOVARS, con permiso de su autor, hace referencia a la obra NOVARS del legendario Compositor Francis Dhomont, el cual cumplirá 81 años el dia de la inauguración, por lo que la celebración será doble. Según sus propias palabras, NOVARS viene de Ars Nova pero al revés, es decir, significa Nuevo Arte, Nueva Ciencia. 

El festival incluirá obras del propio Dhomont, Gerald Bennett y John Casken. Además contará conciertos con la 'curaduría' por parte de Jonty Harrison, Gilles Gobeil, Ludger Brümmer y Folkmar Hein, incluyendo el proyecto 'USA Tornado' para flauta, clarinete y electronica en vivo con las estrellas americanas Elizabeth McNutt y Esther Lamneck. Habrá estrenos absolutos de obras de Jonty Harrison, David Berezan,  Ricardo Climent, Paul Wilson, Andrew May, Eric Lyon, Diana Simpson y Gavin Osborne, ademas de otros muchas de compositores MANTIS cursando doctorado. 

Todos los conciertos serán presentados en el sistema de difusión MANTIS con 48 altavoces Genelec en Surround, en el Cosmo Rodewald Hall. 

Programa completo de conciertos despues del anuncio en Ingles.

MANTIS Presents: NOVARS LAUNCH FESTIVAL, University of Manchester, UK

NOVARS Research Centre for Electroacoustic Composition, Performance and Sound-art

2 - 4 November 2007

_________________________________________________________________________________________________

The NOVARS Research Centre at the University of Manchester, UK was created in April 2007 and its new £2.2 million studios facility became operational in September. The Launch Festival celebrates the official opening of the new Centre and Studios.

The Centre was named NOVARS to reference and celebrate the seminal work by Francis Dhomont (Novars). In his own words: a reversed version of Ars Nova - New Art, New Science. We are grateful for his permission to use his title. 

Highlights of the Launch Festival include MANTIS concerts featuring works presented by Francis Dhomont, Gerald Bennett and John Casken; concerts curated and diffused by Jonty Harrison, Gilles Gobeil, Ludger Brümmer and Folkmar Hein; performances of new works by the USA Tornado Project (Esther Lamneck/ Elizabeth McNutt); and premieres of new works by Jonty Harrison, David Berezan,  Ricardo Climent, Paul Wilson, Andrew May, Eric Lyon, Diana Simpson and Gavin Osborne  and many other works from MANTIS Composers. 

All concerts will be presented using the 48-loudspeaker MANTIS sound diffusion system.
