My piece Hundi was performed on a lake

Goodiepal and some students of his performed some works recently in Old Zealand or Sjælland in Denmark on a lake. This was part of a mysterious festival and included for instance this work of mine Hundi for 8 aluminum cans and Jesper Pedersen’s piece Flöskuhnakki or Bottleneck both of which were originally premiered at the S.L.Á.T.U.R. new years concert in 2011 which I was not present at but has proved to have been legendary. About this legendary performance in Denmark I only received this photo and some rumors afterwards. Must have been great, at least the photo is.

S.L.Á.T.U.R. with Sarah Kenchington at the Tectonics Festival

S.L.Á.T.U.R. will be doing a collaborative piece with Sarah Kenchington in the Tectonics Festival in Reykjavík on the 16th-17th of April. We all look very much forward to the collaboration after having (most of us) seen the amazing work she’s doing on the Tectonics Festival in Glasgow last spring.
