Contemporary Composers Vol. 2

“I feel like I am back in kindergarten”, thus said Kristina Kristidakis during the workshop Failing in Music Industries: a professionalization course.

Contemporary Composers vol. 2 is a cassette compilation of joyful and uncanny sound/music tracks developed through a 2 days’ workshop. In a safe environment, 10 artists had been called to question and to be questioned: What is the difference between sound, music and noise, what sounds can be produced by their bodies, what can be perceived as sound art? Can we visualize sound without notes or waveforms?
The most interesting part was that those questions had never been answered and the most important part was that they had never been asked.

Furthermore, We as tutors failed to provide them with “correct” answers and guidelines

The result of this mess?

Songs, hymns, personal myths, storytelling, spoken word, sound experiments, choir conductions, or just noise compositions are some the elements that can be found in Akademirommet at Kunstnernes Hus in Oslo from 6th-7th of April.
