The German-Polish project Hommage à Penderecki - Search for a New Sound and Format pays a tribute to the conductor and composer Krzysztof Penderecki and his only jazz work »Actions for Free Jazz Orchestra« (duration: 16 min.) This composition does not have a score, there is only one live recording that was made in 1971 during the Donaueschinger Musiktage. Back then, »Actions« played Don Cherry – an advocate of music, based on a tonal freedom – and The New Eternal Rhythm Orchestra. However, Penderecki wrote some sketches (actions) for the tone progression of the work. The music project Hommage à Penderecki is suitable for everyone who plays an instrument, sings, improvises, samples, composes or refines sounds – and is open to all ages and learning levels. Ambitious beginners are as welcome as semi-professionals in the amateur field. At penderecki@home, each participant plays their own interpretation of selected passages or musical motifs from the work »Actions for Free Jazz Orchestra« by Krzysztof Penderecki. These freely designed improvisations or compositions should have a maximum length of five minutes and be sent to us in the form of a recording. We look forward to all experimental results! A jazz work will be mixed from all submissions and released on vinyl. The audiovisual premiere will be followed by an open-air jam session in the public space in Potsdam, and at the same time on YouTube. If you would like to participate, please send us the recording as an AIFF or WAVE file via WeTransfer by 30th May, 2021 at We raffle 100 exclusive penderecki@home vinyls among all participants.
