In Between: Soloist Concert – Marianne Sihvonen, flute

Marianne Sihvonen studies flute at the soloist programme at RAMA.

Marianne about the concert:
In this concert I am exploring new sounds with the combination of flutes and electronics in search for my own unique artistic identity. During the past years the use of electronics have taken me closer to this goal and have helped me to start creating my own music. I am excited to share a part of this process to you as well as some works that have been an inspiration to me!

Furthermore it is the first performance for the exceptional and forward looking flute duo, MoMa, in Denmark. The duo combines improvisation, electronics and virtuosic flute playing in their music that they have closely created together. The duo recently won a scholarship at the renowned contemporary music summer course in Darmstadt.
