Building an Instrument Is Composing

Helmut Lachenmann famously stated that “composing is building an instrument.” In the upcoming Frankenstein’s Lab (18.05) we’ll be taking a look at how building instruments can be taken as an approach to composing.

New Instruments in New Spaces

For the next Frankenstein's Lab, curated by Lars Kynde, we will be moving out to Illutron for an on-site peek into the workshop of four instrument inventors who will be sharing their thoughts and give us a demonstration of some of their latest projects.

Opera, Why?

The word ‘opera’ evokes visions of celebrated singers filling plush opera houses with large voices conveying equally large emotions. Nothing could seem further away from the concerns of present-day composers of ‘new music’. Yet a large number of them have embraced precisely this genre as an outlet for their creative efforts.

Unusual Concerts In Alternative Spaces

The next lab, in which we explore the theme of creating unusual concerts using self-made instruments in alternative spaces, is coming up on the 6th of November.

Frankenstein's Xtra Impro Xmas App Edition

2013 is drawing to an end and we've decided to round off this years activities with a slightly more easy-going lab with some extra space for improvising and drinking glögg together. There will also be a special focus on 'apps' as Anders Monrad and Niels Rønsholdt & Signe Klejs present their work in this field.

Frankenstein Unplugged

The line-up for Frankenstein’s Lab tonight is going to be mostly acoustic for a change so we’ve decided to set a theme for the closing impro session and make it open to acoustic instruments/objects only. No loudspeakers or laptops this time round.
