Aeolian

A new collaboration between composer, Maja S.K. Ratkje, musician Andreas Borregaard and artist Kathy Hinde, commissioned by the Red Note Ensemble.

Aeolian – relating to or arising from the action of the wind

Aeolian draws its inspiration and title from the “breath” of the accordion. Ratkje and Hinde have collaborated closely on creating a hybrid piece where newly invented aeolian instruments are fully integrated within an acoustic ensemble. Accordion soloist Andreas Borregaard, is at the centre of the work both physically and musically.

The air-activated instruments are mechanically activated by the musicians during the piece, blending the sounds of the installation with the musicians’ conventional instruments in a composed, breathing entirety.

World Premiere: Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival 2017 (UK)
Commissioned by: Red Note Ensemble (UK)

The first stages of the Aeolian collaborative process took place at the wonderful Scottish Sculpture Workshop in Lumsden during August 2016 and continued at BEEF, the Brunswick Club Bristol in April 2017…
