Jørgen Teller (DK) - two new works from EMS-studio

A sound piece based on spatial recordings of live actions in a circular 8-16 speaker system. JT used soundfield microphones - in a tetrahedral 4-microphone setup - both for recording sound actions and later for the final creation of the ambisonic 1st order sound file. The aim of this is to explore the inherent timbres of a copper plate and the frame of a grand piano - played with a contact microphone as a plectrum. Thus suggesting steps of dancing shoes running in and out of your skull. A short intro offers a montage of synths, palmas, tetrahedral recordings of objects and field recordings from a visit to Cadiz 2022. Created at EMS and Inkonst 2023.

Jørgen Teller born 1958 København. Musician, sound-artist, performer, composer and poet
I see my work as a "Nomadic Composer". This is an expression of the fact that I work in many different situations and in many different spaces in very different cities. Often in new series - each place. My work has strong roots in organized sound, musique concrète, electronic music, de-tuned guitar-rock songwriting, free-form guitar, drone/spectral music, acousmatic spatial music, jazz'n'poetry, performance and new dance.
Works / pieces has been performed for danish and international danse-theater-productions, conceptuelle events, inter-media, multi speakerconcerts and communications-actions at clubs, festivals and theatre.
Electro acoustic works commissioned by: Danish Radio, DIEM, Glyptoteket, Rundetårn, Lyd/Galleriet, Tycho Brahe Planetarium, NUMUS, Bourges, Soundtravels Toronto, KSYME, IAC-Malmø ao.
Works performed by; 21st Guitars, The Ghettoblaster Ensemble,
Released numerous CD, LPs.
Education: Master in Electronic Music 2006 at Jysk Musik Konservatorium DK.
Teachers: Dennis Smalley, Francis Dhomont, Wayne Siegel, Ivar Frounberg.


A very special duet for a very special night.

Lisa Ullén is a pianist and composer, born in Seoul, Korea, raised in the north part of Sweden. She has fronted her own quartet, since the mid nineties, and to date has released as a pianist over 30 albums . She studied at the Royal Musical Academy, Stockholm, and conducted further studies in jazz at Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA, EAM at the electronic music studio EMS in Stockholm and the Royal Institute of Art. She has been working for many years in the field of improvisation, free jazz and contemporary art music. Ullén tours internationally, solo as well in different groups.

Lise-Lotte Norelius is a composer and musician based in Stockholm. She established herself early as a percussionist, but has since 2000 mainly been focusing on EAM and live electronics. She studied electroacoustic composition at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm 1998-2002 and has since then composed music for speakers, musicians with live electronics, dance performances, and installations. In recent years she has been exploring vibrators, self-built noisy devices, synth jewelry, thermoses, vacuum cleaners and floppy drives, often in combination with Max/MSP software and various effect boxes.


Uncertain Response
John Bowers (UK)

Three years ago, under conditions of COVID-19 lockdown, John Bowers began exploring room feedback as a means for making music, drawing on the work of Éliane Radigue, Alvin Lucier, Nic Collins and others, and thinking of those who endure enclosed environments either by choice, caution, or punishment. In Bowers’ systems, the sound in a room is picked up by microphones, processed using his own self-authored software, and played back into the room. Multiple different transformations of the room sound are possible with the performer less controlling what is going on than thrown into the mess. Uncertain Response is the latest version of Bowers’ enquiry into the complex entanglements of architecture, sound, technology, and action.

John Bowers (UK) works with modular synthesisers, home-brew electronics, feedback systems, self-made software, field recordings, esoteric sensor systems, experimental film, and spoken text. He often combines performance with walking and the investigation of selected sites to research an imagined discipline he calls ‘mythogeosonics’. He has performed at festivals including the Venice Biennale, Experimental Intermedia New York,Transmediale/CTM Vorspiel Berlin, Piksel Bergen, Electropixel Nantes, BEAM London, Faster Than Sound Aldeburgh and Spill Ipswich, and toured with the Rambert Dance Company performing David Tudor’s music to Merce Cunningham’s Rainforest. He contributed to the design of The Prayer Companion - a piece exhibited twice at the Museum Of Modern Art (MoMA), New York, and acquired for their permanent collection. He has just launched a personal record label, https://unlanded.bandcamp.com/. Its first album, Unlanded Volume 1, is planned for release June 2023. https://www.instagram.com/johnthemodulator/

Laser Phase Synthesis [XXI VII III I]

Laser Phase Synthesis [XXI VII III I] is a light and sound performance by audiovisual artist Derek Holzer and electroacoustic composer Luka Aron. It is informed by the historical Audio/Video/Laser system developed by Lowell Cross and Carson Je ries for use by David Tudor and Experiments in Arts and Technology (E.A.T.) at the 1970 Japan World Exposition in Osaka, Japan. Our current project employs digital audio synthesis, modern laser display technology, and a close collaboration between sound and image composition to illustrate the harmonic progression of a musical work.
A laser display functions by de ecting the beam of a laser with a pair of mirrors mounted on galvanometers to create repeating patterns from two input signals, X and Y, at a given frequency in Hz. In our work, these de ection signals are sent from a digital audio interface controlled by the Pure Data application. Composing sounds for the laser display requires careful control of the frequency, amplitude, and phase relationships between two or more channels of audio, since interesting sounds do not always produce interesting laser visuals. These concerns can add quite an additional burden to the creative process of a musical composer, instrumentalist, or vocalist, particularly if they are not familiar with techniques for creating XY vector graphics. The Laser Phase Synthesis instrument, written in Pure Data and used in our performance, simpli es these requirements to the simple harmonic relationship of a monophonic audio channel to the laser’s de ection frequency. This direct relationship between sound and image in a single electronic instrument creates a feedback loop in the interaction process, within which sounds are crafted speci cally for their visual e ect alongside their musical expressiveness.

Derek Holzer (USA) is an audiovisual artist, researcher, lecturer, and electronic instrument creator based in Stockholm. He has performed live, taught workshops and created scores of unique instruments and installations since 2002 across Europe, North and South America, and New Zealand. He is currently a PhD researcher in Media & Interaction Design at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Sweden, focusing on historically informed audiovisual synthesis. http://macumbista.net/

Luka Aron is a German musician and composer of electroacoustic and minimalist music based in Berlin. The core of his practice is the spectral fusion of synthesised sound and acoustic instruments, combining the raw energy of power electronics with the fragility of the human touch. Aron’s work has been described by The Guardian as “thick, impasto layers of slow-moving sound that completely command your attention.” Aron is a graduate of Musikakademie Basel (CH), and is currently pursuing a master’s degree in Electroacoustic Composition at The Royal College of Music in Stockholm (SE). https://luka-aron.com/
