NeoArte Synthesizer of Arts is:

- the festival held in Gdansk, Poland and presenting the most interesting trends in contemporary music and art
- the platform interconnecting artists from different cultural backgrounds and provenances
- the event of intriguing and uncommon profile giving a chance for the contact with music and art
- the medium expanding new areas of human mind and enriching our world perspective.

NeoQuartet (Polish string quartet specializing in performance of new music) is the initiator and originator of NeoArte Synthesizer of Arts Festival.

Main ideas of the festival assume:

  • promotion of young composers and performers from different parts of the world,
  • getting the audience familiar with the classical contemporary chamber music and its newest facets,
  • showing the ever-evolving integration of new music with other arts, such as video art, theatre, architecture, and dance,
  • presentation of cultural events in especial/unique form
  • giving young composers and performers the chance to develop their skills
  • giving children and youth the opportunity, through carefully selected activities, to get accustomed with one of the most creative fields of arts
  • familiarizing the audience with composers’ ideas and giving the chance to understand artists’ motives, hence, enriching audience participation in the cultural event.

Organizers, in very particular way, want to take care of the medium’s attractiveness and more conscious and active audience participation in festival’s events.

Due to innovative projects, organizers are trying to disrupt the traditional concert format or cultural event when the artist plays the role of performer and the audience is just observing.

Starting from the very first NeoArte Festival in 2012, each successive edition invites one famous composer who becomes The Composer-in-Residence. Among the artists who served this splendid function there were many renowned personalities: Paweł Szymański, Elżbieta Sikora, Cezary Duchnowski, Paweł Mykietyn, Joanna Bruzdowicz, Pierre Jodlowski and Wojtek Blecharz. Composers-in-Residence of this-year edition will be Gwyn Pritchard and Alwynne Pritchard.

From its second edition, NeoArte – Synthesizer of Arts Festival expands the educational part by:

  • giving young composers and performers the chance to develop their skills
  • giving children and youth the opportunity, through carefully selected activities, to get accustomed with one of the most creative fields of arts
  • familiarizing the audience with composers’ ideas and giving the chance to understand artists’ motives, hence, enriching audience participation in the cultural event.

NeoArte Synthesizer of Arts Festival is the annual event held in Gdansk, Poland and initiated in 2012. Because of its formal discussion panels and informal after-concerts musicians' and audience meetings the festival aspires to be the exchange forum between artists from diverse cultural backgrounds and provenances.

During overall economical growth, the society strives for more valuable means of spending their leisure time, therefore, there is a need/possibility to promote also the fields of art that carry not only entertaining factors but also enrich intelectual, emotional, and spiritual aspects of our lives (promotion of personal development)

Music and contemporary art with all their creativity, changeability, uniqueness, wide use of new technologies, stimulation of new sensual experiences, contextualizing within our contemporary reality is more than prepared to fulfill our progressive needs.
