Date: 30.03.18 17 – 18.
Location: Atelier Nord, Olaf Ryes plass 2 (entrance Sofienberggata).

Lemur is an ensemble that experiments with converting space to musical compositions. As part of their concert at Atelier Nord, they are bringing a processing tool custom built for the ensemble by Jeff Carey and Bernt Isak Wærstad.

Lemur is Bjørnar Habbestad (flute), Hild Sofe Tafjord (horn), Lene Grenager (cello) og Michael Francis Duch (bass).

In collaboration with Arup Acoustic in New York, Lemur developed Critical Band, a modular piece for spaces with substantial reverb. With Mikrophonie the ensamble explored the inner cavities of instruments. In the piece Lemuria, the group worked with the composer Luigi Nono and architect Renzo Piano’s use of the eye as spacial and compositional metaphor. Lemur marked its ten year anniversary in 2016 with a series of video portraits of roms in Villa Stenersen. in 2018 Lemur was ensamble in residence at The National Museum for Architecture, where they created the installation Polytop and the video piece Leilighetsportretter in collaboration with video artist Ellen Røed.
