Composer Maija Hynninen presents her recent work in this artist talk! Inspired by her surroundings, her work draws inspiration from the contemporary soundscapes.
In her work she uses computers quite heavily to analyse and shape sounds, generating new sounding material as well as an instrument to perform her live electronic works. During the presentation she will play fragments of her newest work as well as show a brand new mixed electronics piece as a work in progress.
The talk will be held in english. Welcome!
