Rafał Zapała in Berkeley

Rafal Zapala, associate professor at I. J. Paderewski Academy of Music in Poznań (Poland), is working at CNMAT on his Fulbright awarded project entitled “Research into real-time interactive systems for non-linear music composition and performance” during Fall 2021.

The goal is to design software for musicians who want to create non-linear music and are interested in interactive participation of the audience during concerts.  The artistic objective will be a new composition intended for a chamber line-up of instruments (fl, vno, vc, db, elx) and websocket mobile console for the audience. Additionally, the theoretical aim of the research is to formulate a new concept of “open form” music, intermediated by technological tools.
