 1.45pm             Panel

Ingfrid Breie Nyhus, Asbjørn Schaatun, Erik Dæhlin, Øyvind Torvund, Notto Thelle, Rob Young


 The starting point for this recital and discussion is a series of works commissioned by pianist Ingfrid Breie Nyhus as part of her research project Arv (Inheritance).  Composers Øyvind Torvund and Asbjørn Schaathun are all intrigued by the question of national identity and folk music. Torvund’s piano/video piece is inspired by Norwegian folk ornaments and the paintings of Gerhard Richter. In Nations, Schaatun electronically stirs up music from all over the world in virtual centrifuges. 

Afterwards both composers join a panel moderated by British music writer Rob Young on reinventing the past with new technologies. Also taking part are Erik Dæhlin, whose Avstandsriss (performed on 13 September) recombines thousands of Norwegian folk music samples, and Notto Thelle (NOTAM), who will present the work of composer and instrument builder Eivind Groven.

With the support of the Norwegian Arts Council (commission Ø. Torvund) and the Norwegian Society of Composers ( commission A. Schaatun).
