Evening dedicated to Milan Adamčiak
Milan Adamčiak (born 1946) is a Slovak composer, musician, musicologist, constructor of sound objects, installations and unconventional musical instruments, performer, visual artist and
experimental poet. Since the mid-1960s he has focused on experimental poetry, graphic scores and the creation of sound objects that recall
the artistic strategies of John Cage and Fluxus. He revived the activities of Transmusic comp. - Ensemble of unconventional music (1989) at the end of the 1980s, founded the Society of Unconventional Music (Spoločnosť pre nekonvenčnú hudbu - SNEH, 1990) and initiated the FIT - Festival of Intermedia Creativity (Bratislava, 1991 and 1992). In 1990 he co-founded New Seriousness. His graphic scores have been used for music and dance performances (Petra Fornayová
Diamondance: Reloaded, 2010).
