NEW work for String Noise and accordion by Lucie Vítková, "Places To Meet!" plus selections from the recent album "The Book of Strange Positions" available on Northern Spy Records!
Lucie Vítková is a composer, improviser and performer (accordion, harmonica, voice and tap dance) from the Czech Republic. Her compositions focus on sonification (compositions based on abstract models derived from physical objects), while in her improvisation practice explores characteristics of discrete spaces through the interaction between sound and movement. In her recent work, she is interested in the musical legacy of Morse Code and the social-political aspects of music and art in relation to everyday life.
She graduated in accordion performance at Brno Conservatory and composition at Janacek Academy of Music and Performing Arts in Brno (CZ). During her Master Degree, she studied at Royal Conservatory in The Hague (NL) and at California Institute of the Arts in Valencia (USA). She has studied with Martin Smolka, Jaroslav Šťastný, Martijn Padding, Gillius van Bergijk, Michael Pisaro and Marc Sabat (Universität der Künste, Berlin). Recently, she is realizing her PhD. research as a Visiting Scholar at Columbia University in New York with Prof. George Lewis.
Lucie will also give a special performance of her Piece for Accordion and Tap Shoes (2015), in which she explores the mechanics of the instrument in relation to the kinetics of her body. The physical movement is informed by the sound and the sound by the physical movement. The actions follow each other fluently, sometimes they appear in contrast and at other times they get stuck in a loop.
