Islaja's music arranged for defunensemble (arr. Islaja & Sami Klemola)

Islaja, vocals
defunensemble


The Musica nova Helsinki concert by the defunensemble will showcase recent electroacoustic music of international and Finnish origin and culminate in a premiere of Islaja’s works arranged for defun.

Despite its title, there are no words in Honeyed Words by up-coming British composer Anna Meredith. Instead, this piece for electronics and cello generates dialogue between “classical” and electronic music, the instruments and the notes themselves. Australia is the home of both Matthew Shlomowitz and, nowadays, Finnish-born Erkki Veltheim. The work by the latter, to be premiered at this concert, likens the search for a new idiom to the process of learning a language. The concert ends with some works by Islaja, one of Finland’s most distinctive singer-songwriter and now adopting a more electronic mode of expression in her latest SUU release, in arrangements for defun.

Mirjam Solomon, soprano

Nils Schweckendiek, conductor

Does God command us to kill? The themes involved in Autuus (Bliss) include religious violence, the relationship between an individual and a community, marginalisation and the frailty of the mind. The background for the work is a true story from Kangaslampi, Finland in the spring of 1881, when Chaplain Woldemar Hofström murdered his brother with a mallet.

The events in the work progress on several time lines, and the work is also musically and visually multi-layered. The overall audio production is the compilation of video material, along with soloists, a choir and a band on the stage.

The work was jointly commissioned from composer Antti Auvinen by defunensemble and the Helsinki Chamber Choir. The stage performance is directed by Teemu Mäki. This work is being premiered at the Helsinki Festival.

In collaboration with: The Helsinki Festival, Helsingin kamarikuoro
