Tectonics Festival

This coming Saturday, March 3rd, my piece Horpma III will be premiered in a concert with music also by Charles Ross and Áki Ásgeirsson. 27 people are performing my piece on various plucked instruments. The piece is kind of an independent sequel to the pieces on my CD (Horpma). This is the first time this music will be heard in a concert. This festival is great, 3 days from March 1st-3rd  loads of interesting stuff in the Harpa Concert Hall. The whole thing is hosted by the Iceland Symphony Orchestra and curated by Ilan Volkov. Did not believe this would happen first time I heard about the idea for this festival.

A few new recordings

Four concert recordings from over the course of last year. First there is a recording from January 29th, Dark Music Days 2012, Reykjavík Chamber Orchestra premiers Laur.

Then there is the Icelandic Flute Choir premiering Harskjall & svellkar for 14-18 flutes. This was recorded during the festival Summer Concerts in Skálholt on the 16th of July 2011. A sort of a programmatic piece describing the flight of St. Theresa of Avila.

Then there is a live recording of my piece Mardiposa since May 2011 when there was a portrait concert of my work in the Von concert hall.

And last but not least Tinna Þorsteinsdóttir and Una Sveinbjarnardóttir premiering Vargard for violin and piano during Dark Music Days 2011.
