In the framework of a network-wide project, that started in 2017 already, and that connects the Cinemascope Trilogy by Austrian avant-garde filmmaker Peter Tscherkassky’s with new compositions by young composers featured in the ULYSSES Network program, IRCAM is following up on 19th June 2019 during a special evening programmed at Centre Pompidou, at the occasion of the ManiFeste-2019 Festival, and with several World and French premieres.

Four ULYSSES Network partners have commissioned two new works each for the Israeli-Swiss Ensemble Nikel:
IMD commissions: Clara Iannotta, Simon Løffler
Gaudeamus commissions: Boris Bezemer, Mikołaj Laskowski
impuls commissions: Mirela Ivičević, Julien Malaussena
IRCAM commissions: Javier Elipe Gimeno, Ariadna Alsina

During this performance evening in Paris, the Ensemble Nikel will rerun compositions by Clara Iannotta and Simon Løffler, first performed in Darmstadt in July 2018, as well a the 2 electronic miniatures composed by laureates Sandra Wuan-chin Li and one composer still to be selected in the framework of a call organized by the ULYSSES Partner impuls and premiered in February 2019.
