Christos Hatzis:
TEXT & MUSIC (Three Songs on Poems by Anne Michaels):
My Spiritual, Philosophical and Compositional Approach to
Setting Poetry to Music.

“My presentation will focus on my recent song cycle on poems by celebrated Canadian poet Anne Michaels with a personal preamp about people and circumstances that have helped shape my own thinking about music, science, philosophy, and life. From Pythagorean philosophy to the Platonic view of reality, reinforced by several scientific breakthroughs during the 20th and 21st centuries (Chaos and Quantum Theory, among them), my lecture will focus on the deeper psychic processes that cause profound meaning to be communicated between composers and their audiences independently of acculturation. The problem of consciousness, cognition, and meaning, communicated through language (ordinary > poetic > mathematical > musical) will form the substratum of my PowerPoint presentation about my personal approach to the relationship between poetry and music, but also about resonant entanglement—the underlying connecting tissue between everything and everyone.”
