LOCKDOWN DIARY

With a video “Lockdown Diary” the Leipzig ensemble Tempus Konnex supports and encourages composers and musicians to think creatively during these challenging times. In partnership with the Forum of Contemporary Music Leipzig (FZML), Tempus Konnex founded the Ensemblefestival for contemporary music, which celebrated its first season in November 2020. The ongoing pandemic has prompted the artistic sector, including our festival, to scrutinize and reconceive conventional concert formats. Through these video diary entries, we are offering fresh compositions a platform, and continuing our momentum towards the second half of the Leipzig Ensemblefestival in April 2021.

Mit einem Lockdown-Tagebuch im Videoformat möchte das Leipziger Ensemble Tempus Konnex Komponist*innen als auch Musiker*innen in dieser fordernden Zeit unterstützen und ermutigen, kreativ voraus zu denken. Tempus Konnex hat gemeinsam mit dem Forum zeitgenössische Musik Leipzig (FZML) das Ensemblefestival für aktuelle Musik ins Leben gerufen, das im November 2020 seine erste Ausgabe feierte. Die derzeitige Pandemie bewegt den künstlerischen Sektor und auch unser Festival, gewohnte Konzert-Formate zu hinterfragen und neu zu entwerfen. Deshalb sollen mit Hilfe von musikalischen Video-Tagebucheinträgen den neuesten Kompositionen Gehör verschafft und die Spannung bis zum zweiten Teil des Leipziger Ensemblefestival im April 2021 gesteigert werden.

With Phase I, we sent out a small sign of life. For anyone who missed it, you still have one more chance! Dear composers and musicians, send us your most recent compositions so that we can film them in short clips and present them on our website and other channels. We are interested!

We would like to support composers and musicians of contemporary music and record short musical clips with small instrumentations. In order to do that, we need your latest compositions! We are interested in solo pieces and duets, no longer than 10 minutes. Possible instrumentation: flute, clarinet, piano, violin, cello and guitar (electric guitar is also possible).
