The training is based on a participatory dimension: the knowledge acquired during the courses (composition, music informatics, recording and sound diffusion techniques) are implemented in a composition atelier open to the use of electronics.

The students work in groups, with a collaborative approach on complementary tasks: on the one hand the vocal / instrumental writing, on the other the electronic processing. During the rehearsals and the concert, the students will share the tasks of computer music design and sound engineering, in addition to the musical direction of the performers.

The workshop takes place in Livorno from 26 August to 1 September 2019. The vocal and instrumental material is previously defined by the candidates selected for the course.

Each candidate works on an original artistic project, inspired by the poetry of Giorgio Caproni (Livorno, 7 January 1912 - Rome, 22 January 1990) working on one or more poetic texts (also in fragmentary version) of the poet from Livorno and on the link with his home town.

Instruments available: soprano, flute, clarinet, piano, percussion.
Students can choose among three types of ensemble:
Voice and instrument/s
Voice and electronics
Instrument/s and electronics
