An AIR-programme grant from Nordic Culture Point has made it possible for EMS to invite Fredrikke to work at EMS in 2014.
This is the last part of her residency, and we will miss her!
Frederikke Hoffmeier (1989) is a Copenhagen based music composer. Best known for releasing and performing under the name Puce Mary, she has made a name for herself within fields of modern industrial and experimental noise music. Despite a still rather young project, the discography is vast with releases on labels like Posh Isolation, Freak Animal and Ideal Recordings and it portrays her work methods to be many and diverse, from sound art pieces, minimal synth compositions to straight forward industrial music. During 2014 she has performed throughout Europe, Russia and America.
EMS welcomes Hafdis back for the last part of her residency!
Hafdís Bjarnadóttir (b. 1977, Reykjavik) graduated in jazz guitar performance from the FÍH School of Music in Iceland in 2002. She earned a bachelor’s degree in contemporary composition from the Iceland Academy of the Arts in 2007, followed by a master’s degree from the Royal Danish Academy of Music in 2009.
We are happy to see Lars back at EMS for a second residency this year!
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.
