The Faculty of Creativity, Interpretation, Education and Music Production

The Composition and Music Theory Student Research Group

logo knkitm wersja skrot The Composition and Music Theory Student Research Group focuses mainly on theoretical-musical research and compositional pursuits. The Group’s activity involves, inter alia, meetings dedicated to the works of particular composers, currents and phenomena of the 20th- and 21st-century music, as well as organisation of concerts presenting compositions written by young composers belonging to the Group. The most significant achievements of recent years comprise a few presentations during Musical Forum of Artists and Scientists: the Tramwaj nr 8 [Tramway no. 8] and Barwy [Colors] projects, as well as the Piętro Wyżej [The Floor Above] concert as part of the Music-Media-Marketing Conference. What makes an annual tradition is “The (theoretically) Compositional Concert”, during which works written at counterpoint and harmony classes are performed. The Group members also participate in all-Polish and international academic conferences.
Another, equally important field of the Group’s activity is participation in the “Musica Moderna” sessions. Students, twice a year, have an opportunity to take part in the event as composers, performers and active audience members – commentators. As part of after-concert discussions, students get familiar with the rudiments of music criticism, thus learning to formulate opinions on the pieces they have just heard. Also, they frequently get a chance to query the composers.
The Composition and Music Theory Student Research Group members are students of the two fields of study, as well as students of new specializations: Film Music Scoring and Music in Media. The Group’s formula is open – those willing to participate in meetings are most welcome.

The Chamber Music Performers Research Group

logokmwmk The main objective of the Group – chamber music performance – stems from the tradition of a musical salon. By being introduced to the legacy of the 19th-century music literature, students search for inspiration in vocal chamber music and vocal-instrumental ensembles. When joining the Group, those keen on chamber collaboration become active performers. The outcomes of the Group’s meetings, actually connected with working on a piece, are presented in public. Although the Group members perform traditional pieces, they are also open to new possibilities and needs, hence creative transcriptions and arrangements they prepare.

The Group has an interdepartmental character.
Vocalists, instrumentalists and composers are most welcome to join us and cooperate with us!
