Image, light and sound are the three key elements of the concert featuring Ewa Liebchen, Jakub Gumiński, Sławomir Kupczak, Pierre Jodlowski and Ewa Trębacz – composer in residence at the Musica Polonica Nova festival. Chain Ensemble will perform together with the artists, a group founded on the initiative of Andrzej Bauer, who will lead the musicians during the concert.

Pierre Jodlowski's Outer Space is a work created in 2018. The main issue he focuses on is spatiality. The composition is intended for trombone, video, lights and electronics. The combination of the sound and the visual layers intensifies the impression of a certain kind of madness that is faced by an individual subjected to the stimuli of the surrounding space.

Ligeia, the work of Ewa Trębacz – the festival's resident composer, refers to the name of one of the sirens in Greek mythology and the title of a short story by Edgar Allan Poe from 1838. The composition has two main components: the spatial sound image in the electronic part and the instrumental parts that interact directly with it. The audio material in the electronic layer comes mainly from recording sessions in bunkers in Fort Worden, Washington. The recordings were made with the participation of artists with whom the composer has collaborated and been friends for years: Anna Niedźwiedź from Kraków (soprano, Ligeia’s voice) and Josiah Boothby, a horn player from Seattle.

The concert will also include pieces by Sławomir Kupczak and Grzegorz Pieniek.  The evening will end with Inner Voyage for instruments and lights by Grzegorz Pieńiek. It is work a song depicting a dream as a psychedelic experience. Most of the information that reaches us is filtered, so that only the most important of it remain in the sphere of consciousness, albeit in a modified form. The metaphysical significance of this phenomenon bothers the composer, which he expressed in his work.
