This concert is a rare opportunity to hear Ensemble Adapter perform their own work. Gunnhildur will premiere a new work for harp based to some extent on her opera "Das Ohr", which premiered at the Philharmonie de Luxembourg in 2021. Matthias will perform his piece "indistinct chatter" for percussion and video, which he premiered in Berlin earlier this fall. The concert also sees the first coming together of members from the co-creative collective FRIENDS. The group consists of musicians and composers from the Icelandic contemporary and experimental scenes who are variably involved as performers and makers. The group develops new works by its members in an open and collaborative setting, using a variety of methods known and unknown. In addition, they are curious to look beyond the boundaries of the mediums of music and sound in their work.
