Austria’s renowned record label Kairos has released the album “Born in Waves” by Estonian composer Elis Hallik (born in 1986). The album predominantly features chamber compositions and includes one orchestral piece – a concerto for two violins and a string orchestra titled “Stiihia.” The album brings together the most significant themes from the composer’s work of the past decade. Listeners will experience a diverse soundscape shaped by Hallik’s studies in composition in both Estonia and France, with a particular focus on spectral and electronic music techniques. At the heart of Hallik’s musical thinking lies sound and its various qualities, juxtaposing or merging clean and distorted tones through extended playing techniques, with timbre and harmony as the building materials.
The event will feature an introductory discussion about the album and a performance of the composition ‘Tuning the Iron’
