Penderecki, Aphex Twin & Greenwood


photo: Jonny Greenwood, fragment partytury

Co-operation of Krzysztof Penderecki, Aphex Twin and Jonny Greenwood is something unprecedented. Aphex Twin is a prominent figure of the contemporary electronic music; he’s the first techno artist whose works have been transcribed for orchestra and then performed in major concert halls all over the world (among others by London Sinfonietta and Alarm Will Sound). Jonny Greenwood, guitarist of Radiohead and a composer well acquainted with ‘classic’ instrumentarium, manifests his attachment to Penderecki’s music.

The programme of two concerts in Wrocław includes three compositions by Penderecki: “Polymorphia for strings”, “Threnody for the Victims of Hiroshima” and “Canon for strings”. All these works, written for strings (in the latter case, for strings and tape delay), come from 1960-1962, the avant-garde years of the composer’s life. Both Aphex Twin and Jonny Greenwood will invoke just that period in their music. “Polymorphia” – performed for the first time 50 years ago – has become their source of inspiration. Aphex Twin is composing “Polymorphia Reloaded” while Jonny Greenwood - “48 Responses to Polymorphia”; both compositions will have their world premiere in Wrocław.

“Threnody for the Victims of Hiroshima” has been chosen mainly because of its relations with Jonny Greenwood’s “Popcorn Superhet Receiver” (inspired by Penderecki’s music) and the Aphex Twin’s decision to remix just that piece by the Polish composer. Concerts will be supplemented with Penderecki’s “Canon” for 52 strings and tape delay, two sets by Aphex Twin, and a piece from the Jonny Greenwood’s soundtrack “There Will be blood."

    Ciekawe ile potrwają sety Aphexa. Właściwie interesuje mnie tylko jego część....
    Pozostałych panów, z całym szacunkiem ale raczej nie kojarzę.

  2. saw2011-02-13 15:10:03

    Mnie bardzo interesuje ravowa wersja utworu Pendereckiego :) cala trojke panów kojarze i wykonanie Pendereckiego będzie chyba najbardziej przewidywalne częścią koncertów ;)

    En el marco del De9cimo Quinto Festival de Mfasica Enratonada celebrado en las isnialactones del restaurant Vista Arroyo yo tambie9n participe9 en una experiencia similar.18 inte9rpretes de mfasica criolla seguedan a Mario en una pantalla gigante mientras yo jugaba Playstation. Dependiendo si Mario iba palle1 o pace1 ellos seguedan la batuta.Un coro de 13 buhoneros de la Escuela Coral Bulevar de Catia iban soltando sus gritos de marketing, a lo cual se podeda escuchar Todo a mil, todo a mil, todo a mil repetido una infinidad de veces (a1mfasica concretar rules!). Un vendedor de quemaditos se cansf3 de cantar y puso su equipo de sonido con un vallenato a todo volumen, mientras otros miembros de la coral aprovecharon para hacerse las uf1as.Toda la experiencia fue grabada a trave9s de un Blackberry robado y pronto el DVD estare1 disponible en el distribuidor Altamira junto al Malandro Cagao de Emilio Lovero y lo faltimo del Conde del Guacharo.Pendiente con eso Nonna.

    I have no idea about that but if you look closely at the video you see that there are also some aero rims being made there. So I guess this is where all of the H+Son rims are being made.
