Tribute to ANESTIS LOGOTHETIS:
sound images/figurative sounds.

Anestis Logothetis is one of the leading pioneers of 20th century composition. His graphic notation system, developed around 1958, is a milestone in the evolution of musical notation. Logothetis employs this system to different ways of imprinting the contemporary sound on the score in order to express the sense of space in musical notation and redefine the roles of the composer, the performer and the audience, during the composition and performance of a piece.

Logothetis’ graphic scores reveal his special aesthetic. His graphic notation system “requires” and ensures the polymorphism of his music. His ideology and way of thinking animates the improvisation and the freedom of the musician during the performance.

– Call for Papers –

The conference will comprise keynote speeches, academic papers and presentations, concerts, sound and image installations and workshops.
This conference aims to gather researchers from all around the world – specialists of Logothetis’ music or young researchers, who are interested in graphic sound, to approach his music and his unique graphic musical notation.
