Triangular Mass, 2017
Triangular Mass is a composition for multiple triangles, which is performable by all, regardless of previous musical knowledge or training.
The Triangular Mass was composed with the aim of creating a safe enviroment for performing music, and dissolve shame or trauma connected with a particular music instrument and the act of performing music in general.
The ensemble is playing triangles in different sizes, creating a crystalline and prism like sound. The sound of the individual triangle and the individual player is dissolved and the sound reappears in a new collective form.
Triangular Mass was commissioned by the Icelandic Dark Music Days festival, and
has been performed at Dark Music Days festival, G((o))ng Tomorrow, Roskilde Festival, CPH:DOX, Suoni Per Il Popolo (CA), Akusmata (SF), Nordic Music Days (N) and various other places.
