« In 1991, György Ligeti expressed his views on the interrelatedness of art and science in the following way : ‘However different the criteria for art and for science are, there are also points in common between them, inasmuch as people working in both fields are driven by curiosity. It is a matter of exploring connections that others have yet to recognize, and designing structures that hitherto did not exist.’
Throughout his life, Ligeti had a keen interest in mathematics and natural sciences, and he often claimed that musical composition and science were comparable realms for him. Invention and exploration seem to have been key to his concept of musical creation. The conference on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of Ligeti’s birth wishes to focus on the composer’s inventive and explorative thinking regarding his compositional techniques as well as philosophical and aesthetic aspects. Another focus will be the (critical) reception of Ligeti’s composing and compositions, especially “inventive and explorative” (analytical) approaches, which have become more visible in publications of the past years. This also applies to the ongoing examination of Ligeti’s self-representation. »
