Neofonía is a space for exploration and collaboration between communities, where artists from diverse backgrounds come together to collaborate on the creation of new projects and teach new music. Through talks, workshops, and free concerts, it seeks to reach a diverse group of participants and audiences.
Bára Gísladóttir's VÍDDIR is a piece for nine flutes, electric bass, double bass, and three percussionists. The work has a special soundscape where texture and dimensions play a fundamental role. The main idea behind the composition is to merge different elements into a single organism.
At Neofonía, VÍDDIR is performed by UC San Diego alumni, students, and faculty, joined by musicians from Universidad Autónoma de Baja California and from Iceland.
Bára Gísladóttir is currently nominated for the Nordic Council Music Prize with VÍDDIR.
