Pascale Criton: Portrait of a Composer

French composer Pascale Criton in conversation with Hild Borchgrevink

Tuesday, 21 September, at 17:00

Since the 1980s, Pascale Criton has been exploring the unstable elements of sonic media, focusing on microtonality and psychoacoustics. 

After Monday evening's portrait concert of Pascale Criton featuring the French Dedalus Ensemble and Norwegian vocalist trio Song Circus, nyMusikk here presents Criton’s work in a composer talk at their own office and events space. 

Pascale Criton, born 1954, has continually been examining music’s perpetual variation, via the use of new instrumental techniques and site specific listening. 

She frequently works with microtones and makes significant use of particular types of scordatura.

Scordatura is a method of performing usually related to string instruments. In Criton’s works, it is often combined with other orchestral instruments and digital materials. 

Hild Borchgrevink is a writer, artist and music critic.

The conversation will be held in English.
