In the news: Uniforum

This week's edition of the University of Oslo newspaper Uniforum features a story called "Forskar mellom kunst og vitskap" ("Research between art and science"), highlighting the importance of interdisciplinarity in research.

The interview was made in connection with a performance of the piece Transformation at Norwegian Academy of Music a couple of weeks ago. By moving inside a seemingly empty space, the violinist slowly explores a sonic landscape of thousands of short fragments of various violin sounds. The space thus becomes a musical entity in itself, a space that the violinist both controls and interacts with at the same time. What seemed to be an empty space at first, is left as a sonic space in our memory when the piece ends.
