The glass instruments, blog

Three sessions at Bærums verk with composer Ranghild Berstad, professor Ivar Frounberg, music technologists Alexander Jensenius and performer Kjell Tore Innervik where we worked with developing ideas and making glass objects which have a potential of producing interesting sound.

Sessions during the summer of making glass objects Session in august of experimenting with electronics and developing a setup to play on, a layout of instruments, lightning and sound possibilities and playing on the instruments to get an idea of what to use them to. The composer worked constantly in her studio to make a piece incorporating the instruments. Different ways into the material as what sounds do I want the glass artist to make to what can I use this glass objects to.

Sessions i august and september: Ragnhild playing wtih the glasses at home, experimenting with vater, stick differnt playing technics. and working out a composition. Kjell Tore dropped by 3 times to se the progress, playing with the instruments to inspire the composer and to learn the thing the composer has found out.
