The Odeion School of Music (OSM) is hosting New Music Week from 17 to 20 July 2013, celebrating the music of our times. Ensembles such as the OSM Camerata, the Odeion String Quartet, Esemble Trans.Z and the New Music Ensemble from NWU are scheduled to perform. They will perform during two gala concerts on 19 and 20 July 2013.

Workshops and lectures will also be presented during the week. One of these, Sound in Motion, will be presented by Esemble Trans.Z. This music improvisation workshop is presented in the form of a soundtrack for a silent film. The objective is an attempt to educate students about the technical and musical concepts related to New Music by means of free composition and mapped improvisation. Each member of Ensemble Trans.Z will be assigned to a group ofstudents according to their instrument of choice. Given a certain amount of time to learn and practice the techniques taught, students will have the opportunity to create a soundtrack for a short silent film.
