Galata Electroacoustic Orchestra



The MTG participates in the Galata Electroacoustic Orchestra project, a European Erasmus Intensive Programme coordinated by Conservatorio Niccolò Paganini. The institutions partnering in this project are Istanbul Bilgi Üniversitesi (Istanbul), Istanbul Teknik Üniversitesi (Istanbul), Universitat Pompeu Fabra (Barcelona) and Conservatorio Statale di Musica “G.P. da Palestrina” (Cagliari)

The GEO IP project (Galata Electroacoustic Orchestra) is inspired by the historical relations between Genova and Istanbul. The first edition of GEO is taking place in Genova between the 15th and 26th of July, 2013.

A total of 7 MTG PhD students and SMC master students are participating in workshops, labs and lectures about traditional music of the three involved countries (Turkey, Spain and Italy), focused on ethnomusicological, technological, performing and compositional disciplines.

The general objectives of GEO IP are:
- To create the Galata Electroacoustic Orchestra, a small group orchestra based on an idea of live collective composition;
- To merge of the Western Classical tradition of score based music and the Improvisational techniques, in particular of Turkish Maqam Music.

The project also includes a final concert of the Galata Electroacoustic Orchestra at old port of Genova on Friday 26th at 9PM.
