Transatlantyk Instant Composition Contest™ (TICC) is one of the flagship projects of the Festival – a unique event based on the idea of spontaneous musical reaction to the image. It also requires from the participants a good command of the piano. The intention of the creator of the contest, Jan A.P. Kaczmarek, was to design TICC as an opportunity to develop composition skills of young composers, especially in terms of intuitive interaction with the image. Each and every finalist, right after performing their piece, gives a short interview on the stage. All in all, over several hundreds of young composers from six continents took part in previous editions of the contest. This one of a kind musical event will be held at the Nowy Theatre in Lodz between July 19-20. The award ceremony will be held during the Closing Night Gala of the Festival on July 21.
The winner of the contest will receive:
Title: Transatlantyk Instant Composer 2017 – First Prize – PLN 15,000
The jury will also award:
Transatlantyk Instant Composer – Second Prize – PLN 7,500
Transatlantyk Instant Composer – Third Prize – PLN 5,000
