String Quartet no. ∞ - an online interactive composition.

Earlier this year I composed a string quartet, which was unusual in the sense that it didn’t have a predefined beginning, ending or structure. Instead it’s made up of small modules that can be assembled in any manner you like. You can listen to them one or more at a time, in any combination or order. There is no one correct version of the piece, but an infinite number of possible versions. That’s why I named it String Quartet no. ∞ or The Infinite String Quartet.



The String Quartet was my graduation piece from The Icelandic Academy of the Arts. When it was performed at my graduation concert I created one predefined version of it, which was then performed by a live string quartet and a computer.



However, my original dream was always that the listener could create his or her own version of the piece – that the composition could be like a world the listener would enter and find his own way through. 

Now I’ve decided to make this dream come true. I’m going to create an interactive version of the composition and put it online where anyone can create and enjoy their own version of the piece. At the same time I want to release a few specially edited versions of the work as an audio DVD, so it can be enjoyed in surround sound (5.1 and 7.1).



If the funding is successful I’ll be able to pay a big part of the required expenses, mostly because of sound and programming work that needs to be done. 

The interactive version will be free for everyone to enjoy online – a public artwork of sorts. The DVD and download version will cost, but comes at a special price if you select one of the pledges. 

To pledge simply press the “Plegde to Project” button and follow the instructions.

--- Icelandic description ---

Strengjakvartett nr. ∞ - gagnvirkt tónverk á netinu. 

Fyrr á þessu ári samdi ég verk fyrir strengjakvartett sem var óvenjulegt að því leyti að það hefur hvorki ákveðið upphaf, enda né uppbyggingu, heldur er það búið til úr mörgum litlum einingum sem má setja saman hvernig sem er. Þær geta verið einar eða fleiri samtímis, í hvaða samsetningu eða röð sem er. Þannig er ekki til ein ákveðin útgáfa af verkinu heldur óendanlega margar. Fyrir vikið fékk verkið titilinn Strengjakvartett nr. ∞ eða Strengjakvartettinn endalausi

Strengjakvartettinn var lokaverkefni mitt frá tónsmíðadeild Listaháskólans. Þegar það var flutt á útskriftartónleikunum mínum bjó ég til eina fyrirfram ákveðna útgáfu af því sem var flutt af lifandi strengjakvartett með aðstoð tölvu. 

Draumurinn var hinsvegar alltaf að gera verkið þannig úr garði að hlustandinn gæti sjálfur raðað einingunum saman og hlustað á sína útgáfu – að verkið væri einskonar heimur sem hlustandinn gæti ferðast um og kannað á eigin forsendum. 

Nú er komið að því að láta þennan draum rætast. Ég ætla að ráðast í að búa til gagnvirka útgáfu af verkinu sem verður sett á netið. Þar getur hver sem er sett verkið saman á sinn hátt, hlustað á og notið sér að kostnaðarlausu. Um leið ætla ég að gefa út nokkrar spariútgáfur af verkinu sem DVD hljóðdisk, þannig að hægt verði að njóta tónlistarinnar í umkringjandi hljóði (5.1 og 7.1)

Ef fjármögnun lukkast verður hægt að borga hluta af þeim kostnaði sem verkefnið útheimtir, aðallega vegna hljóð- og forritunarvinnu. 

Gagnvirka útgáfan verður ókeypis og öllum aðgengileg á netinu – einskonar almenningslistaverk. DVD útgáfan og niðurhal verða til sölu, en fást á sérdeilis góðum kjörum þegar þú styrkir verkefnið. 

Til að styrkja verkefnið ýtir þú einfaldlega á “Pledge to Project” hnappinn og lætur teyma þig áfram.
