Six rooms of gloom



This spring I have been assisting the teaching of the compositions students at the Grieg Academy. I have introduced them to the history and aesthetics of electronic music, sound editing and computer-aided composition using OpenMusic. We have emphasised that this should not be conceived as a separate tradition and practise from score-based composing. Similar thinking and approaches can be applicable in both areas, and the experience gained in one or the other field can help develop and liberate the entire compositional and artistic practise. Some of the outcomes by the students will be presented in a concert later today.

A series of new ectro-acoustic works by composition students at the Grieg Academy are presented as part of the Drop In program during the Beren International Festival.

This spring the composition students have been given an introduction to sound editing and computer-aided composition. At this concert, a series of new electro-acoustic works that employ these techniques are presented. The works relates to various genres such as radio montage, sound art, sound design and the use of field recordings.
