sound-movement performance, 2022-ongoing
Supported by Composer Fund of the Icelandic National broadcasting station & STEF and Composer fund of bylgjan & Rás 2.
Instrument design of Hreyfð supported by Struer Tracks, SPOR Festival and the Danish Composers’ Society
co-financed and partially developed at Academy for theater and digitality (DE) and sound art lab (DK)

Materize is an interactive sound-movement performance for 4 dancers and the wearable speaker instrument Hreyfð, and explores embodied musical interaction. The interplay between sound, movement, and space makes a non-linear narrative where performers take the role of choreographed sculptures that interact with the audience.

Materize is a work-in-progress and planned premiere is in late 2023. The video below is from a demonstration performance at the Academy for Theater and Digitality, where the first parts of the project were developed. You can read more about my research as a research fellow at the academy here and about the wearable instrument Hreyfð here.
