An AIR-programme grant from Nordic Culture Point has made it possible to invite Lars to work at EMS.

Lars Lundehave Hansen has been working in the fields of ambient/drones and noise for the past 16 years - as a soundartist, enthusiastic promotor of and dedicated performer in these fields. The usual works of Lars L. Hansen are often constructions, making a point of being constructions, that emit or react to sounds or noise. In an attempt to explore the relations between timbre / room and action / reaction the works often revolve around controlled randomness, manipulation, expectation, suspended animation as musical criteria and sound as a physical entity.

Born in 1986, in Istanbul, Turkey, Elif Balkir started her musical career at the age of 11 as a pianist. She continued her musical studies in France at the Department of Music and Musicology at Paris-Sorbonne. Besides the theoretical background, her practical foundation was incorporated with music creation and craft and she became interested in the composition of electroacoustic music, sound engineering and musical acoustics, which she studied at Aubervilliers-La Courneuve Regional Conservatory in France.  

Elif Balkir is currently a Ph.D. student under-joint supervision of Jacob Derkert and Marc Battier at the Department of Musicology of Stockholm and Paris-Sorbonne Universities. Her research explores a comparative study concerning the evolution of electroacoustic music in GRM and EMS studios from 1960 to1980.

The dissertation undertakes Schaeffer’s musical ideas acknowledged by Wiggen during the foundation of EMS studio to examine the artistic divergence by means of French and Swedish composers selected works analysis.

The aim is to determine a methodology for an in-depth understanding of electroacoustic music analysis through comparison and to establish a scientific documentation on French and Swedish electroacoustic music within new technologies.
