CNMAT Users Group Presents:

Lucie Vítková_Ideas and Techniques (accordion, harmonica, voice)
Joe Snape_Tired Music (cassette player, electronics)

Ideas and Techniques is a title of the new album (pan y rosas 2014) which gathers the ideas and techniques which Lucie Vítková collected through her practice as an improviser.
In every piece I tried to portray certain phenomena in their pure, concentrated form to make their individual characters clear. Every song is like a mechanism with a specific kind of natural behavior, which determines its musical structure.

At the concert, I will play chosen compositions from the album:
1. Tremolo
2. With Voice
3. Air
4. Microtonal
5. Ultra High
6. Silent
7. Low

Lucie Vítková graduated in accordion performance at Brno Conservatory in 2010 and composition at Janáček Academy of Music and Performing Arts in Brno (CZ) in 2013. During her Master Degree, she studied at Royal Conservatory in The Hague (NL) and at California Institute of the Arts in Valencia (USA). She has studied with Martin Smolka, Jaroslav Šťastný, Martijn Padding, Gillius van Bergijk and Michael Pisaro. She is member of the Ensemble Marijan, Dunami, Dust in the Groove and Prague Improvisation Orchestra.

Tired Music is made from simple sounds. Slow and brightly harmonic, it documents the half-remembered moments of a long winter spent listening only to test tones. Hermetic and intimate at the same time, it has something of the numbness that comes in the absence of sleep.
Joe Snape has played his music in theatres, galleries, factories, chapels and warehouses all around the UK, Europe, and further afield. Recent and upcoming gigs include residencies and performances at De Melkweg (Amsterdam), ACUD Theater (Berlin), Café Oto (London), CMMAS (Morelia), Wonder Site (Tokyo), and The Kitchen (New York). Much of the music you’ll hear tonight is due out on the British label KESH in the spring.
