Wednesday September 28th Notam will be hosting a lunch seminar with presentations by artist Vilbjørg Broch and composer Ernst van der Loo. During the seminar Broch and van der Loo will be presenting excerpts from their new works which they have been working on in Notams studio 3.

When: Wednesday September 28th, 1 PM – 2 PM
Where: Notam – Sandakerveien 24D, building F2

Vilbjørg Broch has been working in Notam’s studio 3 for the past few moths. Broch’s work with computer music is largely concerned with algorithmic spatialization and algorithmic composition. Broch is applying structures and maps in higher dimensional geometry and algebra, and projecting these onto 3D for audio spatialization. During this presentation Broch will be sharing some of what she has been working on during her time at Notam.

Broch is a danish artist with a background in dance and improvisation from SNDO Amsterdam. Broch has worked on multimedia projects and studied mathematics, programming and algorithmic composition. During the past years she has become particularly interested in algebra, algebraic geometry and group theory. Her work within spatial audio has been a natural extension of this interest.

Ernst van der Loo has been working in Notams studio 3 on a new project called «Evigheten under Stjernene». The project is a collaboration between van der Loo and writer and director Rudolf Terland Bjørnerem. This is the third collaboration between Bjørnerem and van der Loo, operating on the fringes between audio theatre, composition and audio walks. «Evigheten under stjernene» is funded by Kulturrådet.

The presentation at Notam will be held by van der Loo, focusing on the use of speech and text material in electroacoustic composition. There will be a short presentation of the first audio excerpts and the possibility to ask van der Loo about his working methods for this project.

Ernst van der Loo is an electroacoustic composer, performer and sound designer based in Oslo. He holds a BA in electroacoustic composition and performance from the Institute of Sonology in The Hague and a master’s degree in electroacoustic composition from the Norwegian Academy of Music.
