10.00 Musicery at ImPulzus – children’s activity with Lolita Berényi
Let’s form a children’s orchestra!
Musicery, designed for the 6-9-year-old age group, aims to develop children’s musical skills by learning to play instruments together.
The program is held in Hungarian, so registration is only available in Hungarian.
13.00 Contemporary music performance with Viktor Magyaróvári (Kayamar)
Let’s tune in to Őrségi Contemporary Music Days at ImPulzus
Viktor Magyaróvári got in the spotlight first in 2011 when he won the T-com’s advertising music-composing competition, the ReZene. When he was asked about who had sung the winning choir expanding more than 5 octaves from the soprans to the deep bass everybody was astonished. His answer was short: ‘Me. Alone.’
Since he graduated, he has been active both as composer and singer. At the very end of 2012 he finished his first self-composed and -sung CD, Music from the Wind based on the English lyrics of the Dutch poet, Robert Keder. His genre as a stage performer is the ‘multipart improvisation’ – with existing/ temporary choirs or with a looper pedal ( looper pedal: ‘allows the performer to record and later replay a phrase or passage from a song’). He teaches/sings 4-8 improvised parts from bass to soprano creating fully accompanied songs sometimes making even the audience sing.
His ars poetica is ‘just to compose and sing and make people smile’ with his phrases without phrases.
