Event Details

May 2019 will mark 20 years since Ostrava Days was conceived. The first biennial Ostrava Days institute and festival took place in 2001. Since then, 69 young and emerging American composers have come to Ostrava – to name a few: Alex Mincek, Noni Epstein, Sam Hilmer, Kate Soper, James Ilgenfritz, Matthew Welch and Carolyn Chen. At Ostrava, these emerging composers worked and collaborated with such established composers as George Lewis, Elliott Sharp, Bernhard Lang, Kaija Saeriaho, Rebeca Saunders, Roscoe Mitchell, Miroslav Srnka, Louis Andriessen, Philip Glass, Martin Smolka, Jennifer Walshe, Marc Sabat, Muhal Richard Abrams, Carola Bauckholt, etc. (besides the almost yearly participation of Wolff, Lucier and Kotik).

S.E.M. Ensemble

Hailed by The New York Times as “the best of what is left of the experimental tradition,” S.E.M. Ensemble was founded in 1970 when Petr Kotik gathered a group of musicians from the fellows at the Center of the Creative and Performing Arts, SUNY/Buffalo. Since then, S.E.M. Ensemble has established itself as one of the most distinguished ensembles for new music in the U.S., maintaining a continuous schedule of concerts in New York, touring annually in Europe, and also performing in South America and Japan. SEM has performed in venues such as Carnegie Hall, Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center, and Merkin Hall. Recent recordings, all on the Dog w/a Bone label (New York), include Morton Feldman’s For Philip Guston (4-CD set), Petr Kotik’s Many Many Women (3-CD set), Music by Marcel Duchamp (1 CD) and Spoken Music —a live performance recording with John Cage, Dick Higgins, Jackson Mac Low and others. Recent recordings of The Orchestra of the S.E.M. Ensemble are also available on Asphodel Ltd. (San Francisco) and Wergo (Mainz).
