HoME Kollektiv / Black Page Orchestra – HoME - House. Music. Europe

HoME installation
An interactive mobile studio and the surrounding space where individual and private narratives are sonified and played in real time (through sonification). Here, visitors can be alone and reflect on the true nature of their home, while others around the installation listen to the sounds created by the processes inside.

HoME exhibition
A collection of seven audiovisual works of different types created by the participating artists based on their experiences during the journey with the installation.

Our HoMEs Performance
Takes place exclusively on 15 September.
A music theatre performance by participating artists that draws on responses and stories collected during the research trip. Instrumental and electro-acoustic music makers, visual composers, dancers, performers, actors and directors work together to give an insight into what home can mean to them.

Reframing HoME – Discussion panel with live acts
Will take place exclusively on 16 September – more information will be announced here soon. 


For the Austrian version, the HoME collective collaborates with the instrumentalists of the Vienna Black Page Orchestra.


Samu Gryllus is an original and versatile artist of his generation. As a composer, he often collaborates with musicians from different social backgrounds. His main interest is multidisciplinarity, with a focus on music. He is considered an expert in sound painting, which is a sign language also used in education and the performing arts.

Bálint Bolcsó (1979) studied instrumental and electroacoustic composition in Budapest and Vienna. In 2015 he earned the DLA degree with his research on interactive music systems. His compositions have been performed at festivals such as Making New Waves, Wien Modern, mise-en music festival New York and Transparent Sound New Music Festival. His projects often revolve around special situations such as an improviser in an interactive environment, a MIDI-controlled concert organ or an ensemble controlled by a laptop musician. He is an active member of the Budapest free improvisation scene and has released live concert recordings with fellow musicians such as István Grencsó, Bálint Baráth or Oli Mayne. He teaches computer music at the University of Pécs and at the Liszt Academy Budapest.

Jug Marković is a Serbian composer. He is active in the fields of acoustic, electroacoustic and electronic music. He holds an MA degree in composition from the University of Arts in Belgrade and graduated from the IRCAM Cursus for Composition and Computer Music in Paris. Marković's music has been performed at music festivals such as ManiFeste, Donaueschinger Musiktage, Biennale Nemo, Time of Music, Festival d'Aix-en-Provence, New Music Dublin. He is the winner of the 2019 ISCM Young Composers Award and recipient of the 2019 Stevan Mokranjac Award, and has been awarded prizes at the New Classics Competition of Tchaikovsky Conservatory, the Gubaidulina Competition and the Ensemble Festival Competition. He has been Composer in Residence at the Cite des Arts in Paris, the Gulbenkian Foundation in Lisbon and Snape Maltings in the UK, where he was mentored by Michael Finnissy.

Marco Döttlinger is an Austrian composer/sound artist, studied music theory and composition as well as computer music in Salzburg, Paris and Basel with Christian Ofenbauer, Frederic Durieux and Georg Friedrich Haas, among others. He is a member of NAMES – New Art and Music Ensemble Salzburg and currently works at the INM Institute for New Music at the Mozarteum University. The main aspects of his artistic work lie in the integration of computer-assisted processes in the field of contemporary (sound) art and time-based arts. He has received various prizes, work scholarships and awards, including the State Composition Scholarship of the Federal Ministry, the Annual Music Scholarship of the Province of Salzburg, the stART Scholarship of the Federal Ministry and the Electronics Land Prize of the Province of Salzburg.

Carlos Nuñez Medina studied composition at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Madrid under Teresa Catalán. He participated as a composer in the Valencia International Performance Academy and the Barcelona Modern Ensemble International Composition Course, where he was taught by composers such as Alberto Posadas, Stefano Gervasoni, Stratis Minakakis or Jorge Villavicencio Grossmann. His composition prizes include "Ciudad de Orihuela" and II FIDAH Piano Composition Prize for Young Composers. Medina's works have been premiered at the Barcelona Modern Festival, Vipa Festival, Plural Ensemble National Tour, Valencia Ensembles Festival, Encuentros Sonoros Festival and at XXI Century Music Cycle. His music has been performed by ensembles such as the Mivos Quartet, Aeolina Quartet, Plural Ensemble, Toy Ensemble, Rubik En- semble, Shinzo Trio or JORCAM Youth Orchestra and soloists such as Diego Fernández Magdaleno, Iagoba Fanlo, Julián Elvira or Raúl Jiménez.
