Dynamische Akustische Forschung
Ultima Festivalen 15/16. sept. 2018
Henie Onstad Kunstsenter

Experimental electronic composer Jan St. Werner (Mouse On Mars, Lithops, Microstoria), Dynamische Akustische Forschung and Ensemble neoN collaborate on an unconventional performance format that includes new composition, improvisation, spatial arrangements and interventions. For two days, Ensemble neoN will take up residence at Henie Onstad Kunstsenter and a space will open up in which a mass of different audio practices will be tried out.
Dynamic Acoustic Research is a radical course of investigation into post-war contemporary music, psychoacoustics and unconventional methods of capturing and producing sound and music. Periodic Composite Waveform Environment explores sound as an unstable art form and pushes players to the limits of their capacities.
Ensemble neoN is a Norwegian contemporary music group working across artistic forms, collaborating with visual artists and performers including Susanna, Terre Thaemlitz and Jan Martin Smørdal. In 2017 Ensemble neoN was awarded Artist of the Year by Norsk Komponistforening.
