On the 19 of February 19:30, Bára Gísladóttir is debuting from the soloist class in Composition from the Royal Danish Academy of Music, Copenhagen. Gísladóttir has composed the piece Víddir for the occasion and especially for the church hall of Grundtvigs Kirke where the concert is being held.
Víddir presents a sonic landscape focusing on texture, layers, and dimensions. Bára Gísladóttir's works are often characterised by a deep and self-reflective calm, where time is as likely to move in circles as it is moving forwards. Gísladóttir is especially concerned with the rich details of sounds. Thus, overtones, liminal registers and multiphonics play an essential part in her works, creating an atmosphere of slowly progressing mystery.
Gísladóttir is a trained double bassist and has performed many of her own works onstage of which this is no excuse, as she will perform Víddir among Skúli Sverrisson on electric bass guitar, 9 flutes, and the ensemble Neko3.
The composer and Edition·S are inviting all attendees to a reception after the concert.
