A multimedia concert dedicated to the memory of Annelie de Man, an excellent Dutch harpsichordist, performed by Małgorzata Klajn (harpsichord) from the Karol Szymanowski Academy of Music in Katowice and Wiktor Przybył (multimedia) from the Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice.

The concert consists of five works: “Frenzy” (Rodrik de Man), “Passacaglia Ungeherese” (György Ligeti), “Schrootsonate” (Ton Bruynel), “Continuum” and “Hungarian Rock” (György Ligeti).

The work deals with the problem of the dual nature of music from the Annelie de Man repertoire, and seeks a visual language for it. The aim was to find a dual way of imaging – based on the phenomena occurring in reality and the digital image generation capabilities. Analogous harpsichord sounds are accompanied by the computerized visualizations, emphasizing the electronic nature of the composition itself.

Wiktor Przybył (PL), born in 1992 in Chorzów, graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice (bachelor’s degree, 2016). He lives and creates in Silesia. He is interested in light, generative art and short films. He develops interactive and multimedia installations.
