Graphite Barrier – Third Space Helsinki

Graphite Barrier – Third Space Helsinki

Graphite Barrier – Third Space Helsinki 10-17/5 2018

Ann Rosén presents a new module of the Great Barrier Orchestra, GRAPHITE BARRIER, through a performance series during 8 days. The GRAPHITE BARRIER instrument consists of graphite, paper, computer and her own software with which she can create and control sounds by drawing. Through playing the GRAPHITE BARRIER instrument one can play, conduct and generate graphic scores all at the same time.

During her residency at HIAP in April and May 2017 Ann Rosén started to develop the GRAPHITE BARRIER instrument and created the video GÅRDEN-Suomenlinna that will be the first performance in the series. Each following day Ann Rosén will perform and create a new score, there will be solo and duo performances and on the final day an ensemble performance.

The scores generated at the performances will be exhibited as they are created and can be viewed between the performances through the Third Space window.
