Music in Movement

Music in Movement is a pilot project that delivers and tests an innovative presentation form to tell the pan-European narrative of contemporary classical music with the most prominent European composers.

The first stage of Music in Movement focuses on four composers who have considerably influenced 20th-century music history. These composers are Kazimierz Serocki (1922-1981), Pierre Boulez (1925-2016), Louis Andriessen (1939) and Arvo Pärt (1935). An innovative online presentation platform will be launched to showcase the works of these composers. Articles, recordings and contextual information will provide compelling stories that will enable contemporary audiences to better understand the composers and their works. Part of the online presentation portal will serve as an educational tool. By using Linked Open Data technologies and by creating an innovative visualisation, Music in Movement will uncover connections and allow users to identify relations between composers, music centres, etc.

The pilot project is the start of an envisioned future Music in Movementprogramme (2017-2019), which will scale the results up to a multiyear, pan-European programme including a unique online address gathering works of twelve eminent music personalities and showcasing their connections, a range of events (concerts, workshops, debates) and teaching resources.

The Music in Movement pilot project is funded by the Mondriaan Fund.
