Event description
TETUZI AKIYAMA (Japan) // ELLEN ARKBRO (Sweden) - CHORDS for organ

About this Event

FULL FESTIVAL PASS AVAILABLE HERE

Presented with GroundSwell as part of their 2019-2020 concert season, this evening’s concert brings together two utterly distinct solo performers, investigating the physical capacities of their respective mediums. Japanese improviser Tetuzi Akiyama boldly and delicately engages the guitar, attempting to convert its body into an electronic entity, while Swedish composer and sound-artist Ellen Arkbro blends organ and electronics, examining the materiality and harmonic quality of chords and extending the timbral character of her instrument.

Tetuzi Akiyama specializes in creating music with elements of both primitivism and realism by connecting his own aspirations, in a minimal and straightforward way, to the special instrumental qualities of the guitar. Besides his solo work, ranging in style from fingerpicking and slide acoustic guitar atonalism to noisy experimental drone to never-ending boogie, Akiyama has recorded many albums in collaboration with artists like Jozef Van Wissem, Jason Kahn, Michel Henritzi, Phantom Limb, Oren Ambarchi, Martin Ng and Alan Licht, to name just a few.

Ellen Arkbro is a composer and sound-artist primarily working with intervallic harmony in just intonation. Her work includes long duration compositions for ensembles as well as electronic sound environments in the form of installations and live- performances, employing both traditional acoustic instruments as well as digital algorithmic sound synthesis.
