So very pleased that my composition ‘Portals’ received the Special Mention for the “Electroacoustic music” section in the Finalists of the XII International Composition Competition “Città di Udine”!
Portals is composed in stereo – a format that I haven’t composed directly in for 18 years. The work was create as a demo for EAU’s Virtualmonium and as a class example of classical acousmatic composition techniques that I could easily pick apart for my composition students.
Concert in Udine, Italy in October, which will be the public world premier, unless an opportunity comes up in Norway first.
After an intense production week in IRCAM’s studio-1, Pockets of Space played two days of continuous shows in the Pompidou Grande Salle with a 64-channel ambisonics loudspeaker array (7th-order 3D) and 3D video with OEG. So many thanks to IRCAM’s production team!
Involuntary Expression is my latest acousmatic composition realised in 6th-order 3D ambisonics.
Premier: 11th September 2017 (19.00). Ultima Festival. Marmorsalen, Sentralen, Oslo, using 3DA’s 24-channel loudspeaker array.
Involuntary Expression explores music that emerges from the micro-movements of hundreds of subjects. Micro-movements are the body’s small movements that we ourselves may feel, but for a viewer are undetectable. These movements are present in all we do, and can feel significant even though invisible. Likewise, when we watch a musician, we see the larger movements and how they connect to the sound we hear, yet the micro-movements, vital in the control of the sound, are known only to the musician herself.
