Duo FLUID DYNAMIX was founded in November 2017. They met in 2013 when Sören was looking for new repertoire for horn and electronics and got recommended to ask Fredrik for a piece. This resulted in the audiovisual composition redeem that was premiered the year after.
FLUID DYNAMIX video/horn duo was established to share our passion for new music and to challenge the traditional concert form. Our one hour program consist of compositions for horn and electronics written for Sören intervened with short videos that glues the different pieces together.
Essential for our creativity as a duo is to frequently meet and get influenced and inspired by the new music scene in Berlin.

Since 1998 Sandgren compose in his house developed composition environment in LISP. 2008 he started a suite of fifteen pieces for different formations and multi track electronics.
Sandgren has composed computer-assisted since 1997. Since 2003, his music has been entirely oriented toward working on secondary sounds of instruments. These sounds are often of a very low intensity and often have to be enlarged using microphones. The way the compositions are designed is reminiscent of an "instrumental granular synthesis". Even if instrumental, Sandgren's compositions are conceived and composed in the way that we compose electroacoustic music. Since 2007 he has been working on a series of mixed pieces (for musicians and computer).
