The Bridges is a project initiated by Muzyka Centrum Art Society from Krakow in 2003 in form of international cooperation with London Sinfonietta, Association Musik fuer Heute from Hannover and Centre Grame from Lyon. The project brings together presentation of outstanding new music works with education activities with youth and children.
Bridges (Pomosty) Festival
The workshops led by artists from the project partners organizations are based on composition rules derived from modern music works. These rules serve the young people to create their own music. The famous new music virtuoso orchestra, The London Sinfonietta has been the pioneer and leading authority in new music education for many years. Their achievements are documented on their website: www.londonsinfonietta.org.uk. The French and German project partners: Grame from Lyon (www.grame.fr) and Musik fuer heute from Hannover (www.DasNeueEnsemble.de) have also gained much experience in similar activities. The results of their work prove that often people who have never been to a new music concert can learn to appreciate even very complex music, which is far from what is offered to them by popular culture and traditional music education. The project partners aim at creating an international forum for new music artists involved in education activities and their intention is to continue the project by organizing concerts, workshops, seminars and conferences.
