Opening Concert - New Nordic Instruments in Development and Practice
In this concert we explore some chosen Nordic instruments in development and practice. On the programme is a composition for the halldorophone by Davíð Brynjar Franzson performed by his Autocoder software and cellist Júlía Mogensen. There is also a composition for DIMI-A and halldorophone by Johan Svensson performed by Jari Suominen and Júlía Mogensen. The halldorophone is an Icelandic instrument, the invention of Halldór Úlfarsson, that is getting widely known today and the DIMI-A is an instrument invented in 1974 by legendary Finnish transhumanist artist and electronic musical instruments inventor Erkki Kurenniemi. The concert will also include a few performances from the DIMI-A and Intelligent Instruments workshops that are organised by the Intelligent Instruments Lab earlier in the week.
