    The Charm of Nordic Irony

    27. February 2014

    Dacapo Records have released a fine portrait CD of Rune Glerup's music. The cover by Denise Burt refers to Rune's now well established technique of working with musical 'objects' in which he abandons traditional approaches to musical narrative:It's almost a physical experience of walking around among a lot of different musical objects without having any direction.

    "Composer" – a documentary by Ida Bach Jensen

    4. February 2014

    "Composer" is a documentary by Ida Bach Jensen featuring Simon Steen-Andersen, Eva Noer Kondrup and Henriette Groth. The film aims at giving insights into the creative processes of these three composers. It takes a look at how inspiration, material, chaos and craft are brought together to form three very particular forms of artistic expression. The film was premiered on 18 December 2013 and will be shown again at the Valby Kino, Copenhagen on 4 February 2014. The three composers will be present for an 'artist talk' with the director after the screening.

    To compliment the coming release of his CD on Dacapo Records, Rune Glerup has received a new commission from IRCAM in Paris.The composer’s work often utilises the possibilities offered by electronics in conjunction with live instrumentalists and so this newly commissioned work for clarinet, string quartet, and electronics, which will be worked on whilst in residence at the venerable centre for electronic music this year, is an opportunity to further his practice in this avenue following earlier studies there.
