Should we breathe a sigh of relief that the world of advertising, symbolized by large screens, surrounds us – for the time being – only here and there (Gdzieniegdzie)? The authors of the install-action, whose title refers to the asymmetrical arrangement of both the performers and the sound and video equipment, will try to answer this question. A very important aspect of the install-action will be the possibility of the audience getting closer to the musicians, who will not be on a typical stage, but among the audience.

Here and there it is partly a multimedia installation and partly a musical piece performed "inside" the installation. Apart from the fragments described in detail in the score, the piece will also have sections with a greater degree of freedom. In these parts, the instrumentalists' activities will be coordinated by software, a kind of "virtual conductor", informing the musicians about the transitions from section to section and changing their playing parameters (e.g. volume, type of gesture).

The listeners will get to know the unusual world of instruments, which apart from their own sound qualities can also interact with new media (audio and video). The result is an intriguing mixture of acoustic and electroacoustic sound. The combination is unusual here – not only does the computer become an instrument that accompanies the performers, but also the instruments influence the work of the computer. Thus, the phenomenon of "human electronics" arises, i.e. electronics is controlled by a natural gesture of the instrumentalist, who gives it "human" features.

Project co-financed by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage of the Republic of Poland within the programme „Collections” – the priority „Composition Commissions” implemented by the Institute of Music and Dance.

Transforma / Gdzieniegdzie is an interactive installation that is a metaform of the audiovisual concert series Gdzieniegdzie.

The Transforma project grows out of the "creativity" associated with consumerism, in order to inspire reflection, to activate creativity or finally to connect with place and history. The essence of the project is to "prolong the life" of a concert, an event of a short-lived and ephemeral nature. The installation creates an opportunity to commune with a work created during the Festival of World Premieres once again. It is not only a re-enactment, but a completely new form of composition, which is influenced by the presence of the audience.
