FILM:  GOLEM (86min.)

Live Music: Lucie Vítková.
Lucie Vítková is a composer, improviser and performer (accordion, harmonica, voice and tap dance) from the Czech Republic. Her compositions focus on sonification (compositions based on abstract models derived from physical objects), while in her improvisation practice explores characteristics of discrete spaces through the interaction between sound and movement. In her recent work, she is interested in the musical legacy of Morse code and the social-political aspects of music and art in relation to everyday life.

She graduated in accordion performance at Brno Conservatory in 2010 and composition at Janáček Academy of Music and Performing Arts in Brno (CZ) in 2013. Along with her study of music she used to teach tap dance at the Theatre Faculty of JAMU. She is a member of the Brno Improvising Unit, Ensemble Marijan, Dunami, Dust in the Groove and Prague Improvisation Orchestra. She is a founder of Temporary Ensemble (2011).

During her Master Degree, she studied at Royal Conservatory in The Hague (NL) and at California Institute of the Arts in Valencia (USA). She has studied with Martin Smolka, Jaroslav Šťastný, Martijn Padding, Gillius van Bergijk and Michael Pisaro.

In her PhD. studies she is analyzing music of Christian Wolff, researching on the hierarchy and social relations in his music and looking for the composition techniques which express this phenomena. Furthermore, she is placing his music and scores into the context of free improvisation to explore the definitions of composition and improvisation.

As a student of JAMU Brno, she was realizing her PhD. research at Universität der Künste in Berlin (partly on DAAD scholarship) under the supervision of Marc Sabat (2014-2015). Recently, she is based in New York City and is enrolled at Columbia University as Visiting Scholar with Prof. George Lewis.
