Click on the "tvox" moniker and it will take you to their profile page. The rest is pure deduction. ;-)

As a proponent of the theremin as a continuous pitch instrument I'm hoping that some information from the workshops will diffuse onto the internet. :-)

I note that the organiser, Prof. Dr. Manfred Stahnke (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manfred_Stahnke), studied composition with Brian Ferneyhough (of the New Complexity (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Complexity)) and Gy├Ârgy Ligeti, amongst others. This quote, from an interview (http://www.manfred-stahnke.de/canzona.html) in 1990 with Stahnke seems apposite, and is a viewpoint I identify with:

[i]Microtonal music, as you mentioned it, is just one aspect of what I'm trying to do. There are even more important aspects, for example formal and rhythmic structures. I think if we had a very well developed rhythmical language we then could have a chance to write music of our time ... It's not so important to write in particular scales, or microtones - it might be twelve tones, or 'out of tune', or intuitive or whatever. But if we can find a way to come close to a kind of dance .... maybe an inner dance, or maybe even a dance on stage where the musicians themselves dance for example as, in a rudimentary way, Phil Dadson does with "From Scratch" - this would be the way. The body must somehow be included again, and this can be done, of course, by singing, by vocal lines... we must try to find new ways of vocalising.[/i]
