Hilmar Thordarson is a composer using traditional instruments as source for researching and experimenting with the various possibilities new technology is offering sonically and visually in live interactive performance.

Thordarson is currently a research fellow at the Institute of Music at NTNU (Norwegian University of Science and Technology) working on a new tool designed to enable a conductor not only to control the overall sound of the performing musicians but also to control a digitally processed version of the performer´s sound in real time. It means that the conductor should be able to “grab” a sound throw it in the air (so to speak), change its sonority and move it around the hall, all with his conducting gestures.

Workshop will include:
The interdisciplinary artistic collaboration, what are the challenges and or opportunities.
Recent work – Hljods bid ek – for ensemble, live interactive sounds and video. Worked in collaboration with video artist Haraldur Karlsson and AJO ensemble.
Future work/research – ConDiS – Conducting Digital System, for conducting live sound and or visuals.
Interview with Matthew Collings and Jules Rawlinson about their work “Requiem for Edward Snowden” and their collaboration.
