Handmade Sounds: Project Director

Innovation in music and the Nordic region go hand in hand - with many musicians applauded internationally for their use of unique instrumentation in their work contributing to a body of works that are creating a sound world expressed through the technologies of the 21st century. This project brings together a Nordic network of artists with their UK counterparts seeing composers and performers working with made instruments, both traditional and electronic, across a broad spectrum of genres to deliver a series of residencies, performances and a number of pan-Nordic collaborative experiments.

The project will bring together leading creators of experimental musical instruments with composers and performers from Norway, Sweden, Iceland, Denmark and the UK to create a network of musicians that showcases and explores the ever growing influence of the handcrafted in sonic arts and music through a series of new productions, workshops and high- profile international performances. Launching at UK city of Culture Hull2017 the project will then go on for iterations in Aarhus and Reykjavik throughout the year.

Artists include: Ragga Gisladottir, Nordic Affect, Pinquins, Eyvind Gulbrandsen & The Royal Northern College of Music, Jobina Tinnemans & Jacob Tekeila with the Hull Choir, Equis, Sebastian Edin, Rosyan, Tronhjem, Alex Mørch & Jez Riley french.
