Gitte Hjort Viuff (DK)

Gitte Hjort Viuff is a student at the Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts, Southern Denmark. She began playing the flute but later changed her study to composition. She is working in the field of electroacoustic music, where sample production for the various works is an important part of her way of working. She is exploring the three-dimensional universe in various ways when creating her virtual rooms, including binaural sound. However, she also writes works such as Havblik (Calm Sea) without electronics. She insists on her own intuition as the basis for her music.

for flute, oboe, clarinet, horn, two violins, viola and cello.
The inspiration for this work comes from observations of the surface of the sea. In the beginning everything is silent and without life when you look at the glassy sea surface. But if you look long enough a world of small movements will appear where the light is reflected on the surface. The composer explores the development of these reflections and the often strange refractions of light and transposes them into music.
