A new piece by Simon Steen-Andersen, Run Time Error, will be premiered at Musica nova as a live stream concert. The award-winning composer and multimedia artist Steen-Andersen will create a Gesamtkunstwerk at the Helsinki Central Library Oodi that combines video art, music and movement in the footsteps of Polytopes by the inspiration of this year’s Musica nova, composer Iannis Xenakis. The concert will also feature defunensemble, an experimental electroacoustic music ensemble composed of leading musicians and sound technicians in Finland. Defunensemble will perform the following works in the concert: Bart de Vrees: For Flute or Percussion or Mandolin or percussion or….., Michael Beil: Die Zwei and Simon Steen-Andersen: Study #2 for string instrument.
