Ictus permieres a work by composer and sound artist Ellen Arkbro for percussion, strings and wind instruments. The piece will be presented within the acoustic and harmonic context of a sound installation; an environment which will be sounding on its own before and after the performance, allowing the modalities of the work to be sustained in space, and in time.
The new work will be created during an intensive workshop process in the studios at Ictus. The exploration of pre-produced composition notes and sketches, as well as dealing with verbal forms of transmission, will guide this process.
Ellen Arkbro (b. 1990, Stockholm)
is a composer and sound-artist working with precision-tuned intervallic harmony. Her work includes compositions for acoustic instruments, for synthetic sound, and for combinations of both, as well as installation work. In 2017, she released the album ‘for organ and brass’ with works for renaissance organ and brass trio. Her second album ‘CHORDS’ was released in 2019 and focuses on slowly unfolding chordal modulations and on the sonic texturality characteristic of precision-tuned harmony. In all of her work, Arkbro focuses on the qualities of harmonic sound that reveal listening as an active process of creative participation, inviting the listener to gradually transform into the sound itself.
