Ilios festival, Harstad February 4-6

Somebody got ill, and Peter and I jumped on an airplane in a week’s notice, going up to the nice Ilios festival in Harstad.

Surrounded by  beautiful art in the gallery Paletten, we were offering an hour of several shorter improvisations,  Thomas Dahl’s No Reason Aftermath, and Three bagatelles by Sven Lyder Kahrs. The Kahrs piece we later re-mixed into a polyphonic electronic version.

Concert, Sound of Mu, January 25

The stage was set for an exciting encounter between two live electronic musicians of international standing at Sound of Mu on Tuesday January 25.

Diemo Schwarz from IRCAM held a workshop in advanced synthesis and signal processing at NOTAM in the end of January.

Diemo Schwarz is one of the leading figures within the live electronics field, and he has developed a number of signal processing tools, including Max/MSP patches such as FTM and CataRT. It was a pleasure for me to be able to play a concert with him again.

The concert was organized by me in collaboration with NOTAM, and Cato Langnes was the sound engineer. In addition to improvisations by Diemo and me we

both played a solo piece each. I played Thomas Dahl’s piece No Reason Aftermath. It was a great atmosphere at the venue.

Diemo is using the iPad as a control function for CataRT, as well as a pressure-sensitive MIDI-controller which controls the dynamics. It works so well with the iPad. He can play it like a separate instrument, away from the computer, using the accelerometer.
