Finnish-Icelandic electric guitar ensemble Sähkökitarakvartetti presents the Swedish premiere of new compositions by Daniel M Karlsson, Hafdís Bjarnadóttir and Tytti Arola & Þhorkell Nordal.
Sähkökitarakvaretti is a Helsinki-based electric guitar quartet that represents different backgrounds, aesthetics and approaches to the instrument. The quartet focuses on the breaking down of imaginary boundaries in relation to the sonic arts, the only constant being the guitar. By commissioning and performing pieces candidly, the group has found themselves in a wide range of settings: from fragile reductionism to extreme sludge drone, from uncanny conceptualism to sublime chamber music.
The quartet has premiered pieces by composers such as Clara de Asis, Léo Dupleix, Sami Klemola and Lauri Supponen and performed e.g. in the esteemed Musica Nova festival in Helsinki. At Fylkingen Sähkökitarakvartetti are joined by Stockholm guitarist Susanna Risberg.
