Norsk Komponistforening 100 år – et gjenbruksprosjekt

«Norsk Komponistforening 100 år – et gjenbruksprosjekt»

NKFi100_logo

EAU bidrar til NKFs 100-årsjubileum med en nasjonal komponistdugnad.
Verksserien «NKFi100» består av 8 bestillinger fra komponister, som
hver representerer ulike regioner i hele det klingende kongedømmet.

Disse 8 blir presentert i ulike sammenhenger spredt utover hele
landet gjennom hele jubileumsåret 2017: kunstfestivaler,
musikkfestivaler, enkeltstående konserter og seminarer. Se liste
over arrangementer (holdes fortløpende oppdatert) lenger ned.

Hvert verk i serien har varighet 5 minutter, og presenterer på ulike
kunstneriske måter den musikalske aktiviteten i en landsdel gjennome
de siste 100 årene. Komposisjonene representerer tid, rom og
trender, og utgjør en klingende demografi av Norsk
Komponistforenings medlemmer og deres kunstneriske arbeider de siste
100 år i de ulike fylkene/landsdelene hvor medlemmene sitt har/hadde
opphav og/eller virke.

Verkene i prosjektet utgjør hver for seg og sammen en salutt og en
feiring av NKF når denne viktige foreningen blir 100 år, og også av
skapende tonekunstnere i hele landet gjennom 100 år.

I tillegg bidrar prosjektet til å fokusere på akusmatisk og
elektroakustisk konsertmusikk i Norge anno 2017.

Komponistene som bidrar i prosjektet er:

  • Rebecka Sofia Ahvenniemi – Vestlandet
  • Natasha Barrett – Østlandet
  • Frank Ekeberg – «Klanger fra Trøndelag» – (Trøndelag) – 5’00
  • Ulf Holbrook – «Uten tittel» – Sørlandet
  • Bjarne Kvinnsland – «Jeg har reist i noen år» – Østlandet
  • Anders Tveit – «100 år fra Sør» – Sørlandet
  • Anders Vinjar – «Feberdikt» – Østlandet
  • Jon Marius Aareskjold – Nord Norge

Prosjektet er blitt til i samarbeid med Norsk kulturråd, NKF og
Nasjonalbiblioteket.

The Electric Space Series concert no.4

lab_4

Welcome to the forth concert in The Electric Space Series, featuring 3D electroacoustic acousmatic music performed over 47 loudspeakers.

The Electric Space Series concert number 4 is brought to you in collaboration with EAU. We feature Anders Vinjar’s latest commission ‘Le camere invisibili’, hot off the press, premiered only a few days earlier at Borealis 2016 (Bergen). We’re also setting up an acousmatic show of Tor Halmrast’s classic ‘Aqueduct’, composed for the Norwegian Pavillion at the Expo 92 in Sevilla. Another major work on the program is Fernando Lopez-Lezcano’s ‘Space, Sacred, Secular’. This work places us inside the real acoustics of the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul, Turkey, which was once a cathedral, a mosque and is now a secular museum. Fernando has developed his own method for capturing the 3-D acoustics which he applies in his composition. The concert concludes with a dynamic work from Quebec composer Gilles Gobeil – a star of the French-Canadian acousmatic scene who has won over 20 national and international awards, including the Ars Electronica.

As normal, these exclusive events are FREE, but will have limited seating. Each month the demand leads to an inevitable repeat performance, so this time we advertise two slots: 17.00 and 18.00. Sign up to ensure a seat!:

The Electric Space Concert Series 3

Electric_space_concert3
Concert 3:
17th February, 17.30-18.15
Welcome to the third concert in a new series featuring 3D electroacoustic acousmatic music performed over 47 loudspeakers.
These exclusive events are FREE but will have limited seating. To sign up and ensure a place, please use this link: 
This third concert in the Electric Space Series is brought to you in collaboration with the performance group EAU (Electric Audio Unit). The program features two works by EAU’s members: Anders Tveit and Natasha Barrett. Alongside these two pieces are works by three internationally famous composers: Horacio Vaggione (AR/FR), Francis Dhomont (CA) and Robert Normandeau (CA). The works by Vaggione and Dhomont receive their first performance in Norway. Normandeau’s ‘Clair de terre Ouverture’ is a new 16-ch version made for us by the composer!

Despite the pieces in this concert spanning 25 years of acousmatic history and technological developments, amongst their diversities are also found similarities in the language of musical gestures that grip the listener throughout, and in the works balancing along a line between concrete and abstract music and imagery.
An exciting concert of 3-D Ambisonics and sound diffusion performance not to be missed!

Program:

  • Vaggione (AR): 24 Variations. (2001) Stereo diffusion over 3-D ambisonics.
  • Tveit (NO): Ierotelestia. (2013, concert remix 2015) Stereo diffusion over 3-D ambisonics.
  • Barrett (NO/UK): Topology Chamber 2. (2015) 3-D Ambisonics.
  • Dhomont (CA): Chambre de ténèbres and Chambre de lumière from Forêt Profonde. (1994) Stereo diffusion over 3-D ambisonics.
  • Normandeau (CA): Clair de terre Ouverture. (1999, rev. 2016). 16-ch set inside 3-D Ambisonics

bayle-acousmonium

Komponistgruppen EAU (Electric Audio Unit) fremfører elektronisk musikk diffusert over et høyttalerorkester i stua på Biermannsgården.
I god, gammeldags fransk elektroakustisk tradisjon med høyttalerorkester, inviterer vi til å ta med dine gamle (eller nye) høyttalere som så utgjør de ulike stemmene i musikken, små eller store, rare eller fine, alt går!
I tillegg, ta med dine egne stereo komposisjoner så lærer du å diffusere dette over høyttalerorkesteret.Vi starter dagen med en mini-workshop hvor vi bygger opp orkesteret, lærer mer om diffusjon, fremføringsteknikker og ikke minst prøve ut deltagerenes eget materialet over høyttalerorkesteret.

Vi starter konserten med noen elektroakustiske klassikere som Bernard Parmegiani: De Natura Sonorum og Francois Bayle: L’expérience acoustique
Etterfulgt av deltagerenes egne komposisjoner.

Det vil bli servert kaffe,mineralvann og kaffemat under workshop og konsert.

Fredag 15 januar, Biermannsgården
