The polish Hashtag ensemble will be presenting a concert featuring the work of Rafal Zapala, visting Fulbright researcher at CNMAT, on 17 November 2021 at 8pm.

The concert will present participatory works involving the audience, works of an open, non-linear form, "rhizome" or "hypertext" compositions. It is conceptually focused on building the "community of listeners," with all compositions interactively engaging listeners, sometimes through physical interaction, sometimes  with mobile consoles prepared for the pieces. The concert will feature a new work titled „Introverts’collective” which was created at CNMAT during Rafal's residency.

The Adam Mickiewicz Institute is the organizer of this event. The concerts are co-financed by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage of the Republic of Poland.

Hashtag Ensemble dedicates the concert to the memory of Stanislaw Lem, the Polish science fiction writer and futurologist, whose 100th birthday anniversary we celebrated this year and whose spirit permeates each of the presented works. We will try to evoke Lem's characteristic world of bio-technological hybrids and experimental electronics, organically merging with the 'human factor', and the writer's typical critical distance towards technology.
