Flautist MONIKA ŠTREITOVÁ (Czech Republic/Portugal)
and composer ALEXANDER MIHALIČ (Slovakia/France)
The Sampo was created in 2014 by Alexander Mihalič (composer and founding member of Musinfo in Saint-Étienne, France) to facilitate the interpretation of electroacoustic repertoire without the need for a technical assistant. The workshop will approach the processes of preparation and performance of this repertoire, focusing on important aspects including: the ability to change the parameters of the effects in real time, trigger and manage soundfiles, using up to seven pedals. The sound quality requirements that arise in the preparation of compositions and the interaction of the acoustic instrument with the Sampo will also be discussed, so that the artists can actively participate in the process of performing the works.

Claire Marchal and Lieve De Sadeleer are two explorers of the sound of the flute - or rather flutes in the plural! They indeed offer us a musical journey with modern, baroque, traditional flutes... all augmented with the Sampo. The Sampo is a digital extension that allows you to transform the sound of an acoustic instrument in real time, thus adding a new sound dimension to it.
The program that the two performers have designed for the Claviers en Pays d'Auch, l'été festival promises to be as rich as the instrumentarium, ranging from early music to contemporary music and improvisation.
From 26 to 30 July 2023 in Auch, France
The Sampo academy is aimed at musicians who wish to transcend the sound boundaries of their instrument with the Sampo. It offers a chance to discover the Sampo during five days of intensive training, to transform one's instrument into an augmented one, and to introduce oneself to mixed music.
