The MDF festival does not just entail passive listening and watching. The program will also include practical classes to open the minds of adults, and allow children to realize their imagination in practice. Inspirational and creative.
Among the many trends and fields of art, music at the MDF festival will play a primary role. The interior of the Philharmonic will be filled with the sounds of interesting music genres which have little in common with classical music. Outstanding artists and performers.
For the duration of the festival, the interior of the Philharmonic will morph into an extraordinary gallery – an exhibition of furniture, graphics, large-format photographs and design, creating a unique scenography for all the events. There will be no special effects.
During the MDF festival, the Philharmonic will not only play with music, but also with light. Each of the five festival days will be a unique spectacle, in which the lighting effects will be combined with the sounds. A feast for the senses.
The assumption of the MDF festival is to capture the trends and laws governing contemporary design in real time and place. The direction will be given by eminent lecturers. A valuable dose of knowledge and extension of thought horizons.
The MDF Festival is a dialogue, not only between the various fields of art, but also their creators and recipients. A meeting place, confrontation of views, as well as discussions – planned and unplanned. A creative clash of thought and opinion.

The final concert of the MUSIC.DESIGN.FORM festival ended with a standing ovation, whose first edition the first took place at the Philharmonic in Szczecin on 19-23 September. Five days of exhibitions, workshops, discussions on contemporary design, play with sound, light and image, and above all – unusual, even experimental and premiere concerts. The variety of means of artistic expression was to lead to creative searches and exceptional artistic experiences. Was it really like that? The lively reactions of festival participants who willingly interacted with attractions confirmed that it is worth organizing events that are outside the classical trend and beyond all schemes.

O tym, że MUSIC.DESIGN.FORM Festival obrał drogę nieschematyczną, wykorzystując różne środki wyrazu artystycznego do wywołania wyjątkowych przeżyć estetycznych, można się było przekonać już po dwóch dniach. Dźwięk i światło, muzyka i wizualizacje, design i oryginalna architektura budynku Filharmonii – wszystkie te elementy przestały istnieć oddzielnie, sprzyjając twórczym poszukiwaniom.

We regret to announce that the concert "An Evening of Chamber Music" planned for 20th September as part of the MDF festival will take place without the participation of Philip Glass due to the artist's health problems. Philip Glass was to appear on stage as a pianist, performing his own compositions with violinist Tim Fain and cellist Matt Haimovitz. Thus Philip Glass will be replaced by Maki Namekawa, an acclaimed pianist who has collaborated with the artist for a long time.

On 24th May at 22.00 the Philharmonic in Szczecin will shine with colors. This unique experimental test is to show the lighting capabilities of the façade of the building that has never been fully used before. The test will certainly constitute a fascinating light show, but its role is much more important – preparation for the September MUSIC.DESIGN.FORM Festival, during which the building of the Philharmonic in Szczecin will play with light on such a large scale for the first time.

Where is art heading? What is it that connects music, fine arts and contemporary urban lifestyle? How does performing influence the understanding and feeling of music? These and similar questions will be addressed during the MUSIC.DESIGN.FORM festival to take place on September 19th-23rd at the Philharmonic in Szczecin. Among the invited guests are professor Sabine Sanio, lecturer at the Department of Sound and Sonic Arts of the University of Art in Berlin, and Trine Blicher Folmer, architect and owner of the Danish architectural studio "Ghetto".

A horn, the squeal of tires, the rattling of tram wheels, the "popping" of signals at pedestrian crossings, an ambulance siren ... the repertoire of sounds in each major city is enormous, and has been noticed by many composers. However, nobody yet has created a sound image of Szczecin. The Sound of Szczecin will be recorded during an exceptional action to become the foundation of the premiere song "The Sound of Szczecin" on 17th-18th April, where originally marked BMW electric cars, driven by well-known residents of Szczecin, will take to the streets of Szczecin. The experimental musical piece "The Sound of Szczecin" will be the first musical experiment of its kind, the effect of which will be presented on the last day of the MUSIC.DESIGN.FORM Festival at the Symphony Hall of the Philharmonic in Szczecin. BMW Dealer Bońkowscy is the partner of the event.

A swoosh, interlocking rings or golden arches. Logotypes surround us on every side. Even children are able to accurately guess which companies are behind the pictures. But what if the logo consisted of sounds? The MUSIC.DESIGN.FORM festival taking place on September 19-23 at the Philharmonic in Szczecin, crosses all boundaries. The concert on the fourth day of the festival, September 22, is entitled "Navigator – musical logos of the cityscape", and features a commissioned composition – we will design sound logotypes matching the largest squares in Szczecin!
