Bel Canto (2024) Tianwei Yuan
Bassoon works of bel canto style The project revolves around the musical element of Bel canto, from the beautiful moments it brings to people, to the long-term influence on music, and the thinking and active creation it triggers. Therefore, I plan to perform the following works, in order to express the musical meaning that "Bel canto" brings to composers and us. bel canto was restricted to beauty and evenness of tone, legato phrasing, and skill in executing highly florid passages and more. there are many different expressions of music, "Bel canto" is one of them. This form of expression sublimates the theme by transforming the singing of music into singing. The singing in the instrumental performance has similarities with vocal music for example :Support, breath, body resonance and singing the “words” etc.. I would like to find back the singing bassoon sound and share it with you in bel canto style, hope you like it!

MY PUBLIC STAGE (2024) Ioannis Karounis
"My Public Stage" is not merely an artistic practice; it is a dynamic fusion of performance art and civic engagement that transcends conventional boundaries. At its core, this practice navigates the intricate relationship between the artist and the public sphere, offering an unconventional perspective on how art can reshape our understanding of the world. The essential aspect of this artistic journey lies in the intentional placement of artistic interventions and performances within public spaces, where the encounter with viewers is not a predetermined spectacle but a meeting. This deliberate approach seeks to dissolve the traditional separation between the artist and the individual, fostering a unique connection that is spontaneous and genuine. I view public space as not only a material but also a social environment that is produced, reshaped and restructured by the citizens through their experiences, their intentions for action and the relations they develop in it. My project draws on Lefebvre’s (2019) approach to urban public space not as a neutral container of social life, but as a fluid entity, both constructed and produced by social practices. Lefebvre’s approach confirms and expands my view that public space is not fixed, yet it requires a conscious effort to intervene in its production. The philosophy driving "My Public Stage" aligns with the concept of civic engagement. By presenting long durational performances in the heart of everyday life, the artist consciously assumes the role of a creator, using performance art as a medium to unveil the interconnected elements that bridge art with life. This philosophy echoes the sentiment of Joseph Beuys, who believed that everyone is an artist, actively sculpting the intricate sculpture we call life. In embracing the public sphere as its canvas, this practice transcends the conventional boundaries of art and daily reality. It becomes a catalyst for a different perspective on how individuals perceive and engage with their surroundings. The transformative power of performance art is harnessed to reveal the latent artistic potential within each person, emphasizing the symbiotic relationship between art and life.

Empty Space (2024) Barbora Haplova
This artistic post-master research explores interpretational possibilities of empty space. Combining literary and graphic creative work with documentary, personal and research background, the e-book asks a question how can we find connections between individual occurrences of empty space. Through bilingual essays, visual essays, and practical exercises, this work proposes the following perspectives: empty space as a mode of attention; nuanced individual interpretations of empty space as missing, coming together, not being, disappearing; empty space as a field designed to be filled; and the non-definition of empty space as accepting the unknowability of its possibilities.
