Annual Report

  • Please describe your organization’s activities over the past year, including concerts, commissions, collaborations, publications: 

    We entered the ISCM World New Music Days and two works were performed from South Africa.

    Our main event is am Indaba (festival of contemporary music) which was held in Pretoria from 10 to 12 November 2017. That year saw a wide range of diversity from ‘speaking pianist’ – a performance of Frederic Rzewski’s ‘De Profundis’, performed by Joanna Wicherek from Poland – to traditional South African songs performed by Cora-Mari van Vuuren and Loveline Madumo. This year’s event was on a relatively small scale, but it was able to include at least 4 first performances. In addition, videos provided by two composers were shown publically for the first time, as well as a video taken from the 2014 Unyazi in Johannesburg.

    Besides live concerts, an art installation was given by Tshidzo; a children’s workshop was featured and, at the same time, the adults enjoyed a talk on ‘Dwelling in Dissonance’. A further talk/discussion was presented that related to the piano recital given by Benjamin Fourie.

    We sent a composer to Visby for their International Centre for Composers. The selected composer enjoyed facilities that were not available to him at home.
