Spatial Y



Spatial Y by Michael Nielen, Ann Rosén and Sten-Olof :: FYLKINGEN :: Saturday, March 10, 2007 at 19.30 :: Münchenbryggeriet, Torkel, Knutssonsgatan 2 (T-bana Mariatorget).

The pianist Michael Nielen, the artist Ann Rosén and the composer Sten-Olof Hellström performs the sound work Spatial Y. In a meeting between chamber music, installation art and electronic chaos the spatial aspects of sound are woven together forming a sound work to which further dimensions are added by the audience movements, sounds and choices. The audience can choose to regard the work as an installation, which you can enter and walk around inside or as a concert where you sit down and listen. 120 min with individual pause.

Michael Nielen: Born 1961 in Germany. Trained pianist from the Academies of Music in Düsseldorf and Cologne. Solo and ensemble concerts in several European countries with both classical and contemporary music. Collaboration with several composers. CD and radio recordings. Since 2000 works with sound installation and live-electronic for exihibitions and concerts. From 1998 instructor at the Kunsthøjskolen in Holbæk / Denmark. Lectures on different issues of contemporary music.

Ann Rosén's work can take the shape of video, sound art, electro acoustic music, sound and video installations etc. In the early 1990s she investigated various forms of human interaction, her work focussed on creating situations where people could meet under different forms. As computer technology became more accessible Ann Rosén started to combine social interaction with digital art forms. Many of her ideas require a large number of people from different backgrounds. This has led to that she has initiated and coordinated a number of interdisciplinary projects. In 2000 Ann Rosén started to include scientists and researchers from different fields in her projects. To address the problems encountered in these projects and create a platform for interdisciplinary collaborations Ann Rosén initiated ADRA- Art Driven Research Association in 2004.

Sten-Olof Hellström has been active as a professional composer since 1984 Masters of Music in composition at University of East Anglia, England 1990 Employed as researcher and composer at the Centre for User Oriented IT Design (CID), Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) since 1997. As a researcher Hellström has mainly worked in the field of Human Computer Interaction where he has been part of several major international research projects such as eREANA and Shape. He is also very active in the field of sonification (representing data with sound). One example of current work is the construction and development of a computer interface for the visually impaired. Sten-Olofs Hellströms main occupation and profession is however as a composer working with Electro-acoustic music.
