Phase 3 of our project Eilíft sólskin was a creative residency in the south of France in the very last days of 2021. I was invited with duet Lila Bazooka – sound guru Céline Grangey and experimental bassoon priestess Sophie Bernado – for a week of composition on stage at the Astrada in Marciac.
Remember phase 1 of Eilíft sólskin was an explorative and collaborative residency in Iceland in July 2021, including scientists, Icelandic musicians (including Berglind María Tómasdóttir featured below), folk music archives, a remote farm festival and some humpback whales.
Phase 2 was a creative week at Elektronmusikstudion (EMS) in Stockholm in October 2021 where we processed large amounts of the raw matter into diverse modules.
Look for the final phase of this project in the second half of 2023! – then all different parts will finally be put together: Eilíft sólskin as Lila Bazooka and me, guested by our Icelandic colleagues, playing on stage the special piece that’s the result of this all. Stay tuned!!
