score exhibition and concert

June 3. - 12. 2011
BABEL art space, Mellomveien 4, Trondheim

Opening Friday the 3rd of June at 7 pm.
Concert and talks on Saturday the 11th of June between 2 to 5 pm.

Ny Musikk Trondheim (New Music Trondheim) invites to an score exhibition focusing on
the visual aspect of the quoted contemporary music: How do the scores look like? What are
the differences between traditional notation and graphic scores? Is it possible to make music
based on a picture?

Scores of seven Norwegian composers and one Norwegian sound artist are exhibited at Babel
art space during the period of the 3rd to the 12th of June. The works exhibited here are by Arne
Nordheim, Bjørn Fongaard, Lene Grenager, Ole-Henrik Moe, Maja S. K. Ratkje, Øyvind
Torvund, Else Olsen Storesund and Linn Halvorsrød. At the opening night Marianne B. Lie
(cello) will be playing a piece by Lene Grenager.

The last weekend of the exhibition will also include a concert and talks. Saturday the 11th of
June compositions by Arne Nordheim, Bjørn Fongaard, Lene Grenager and Ole-Henrik Moe
will be performed by Stig Førde Aarskog (clarinet), Michael Duch (bass), Ole Jørgen Melhus
(trombone) and Kari Rønnekleiv (violin). During the concert, Lene Grenager and Ole-Henrik
Moe will talk about their relationship with the visual aspect of the composing.

The exhibition, concert and talks are organised by Ny Musikk Trondheim in cooperation with
Babel art space.
