About MORF 1

MORF 1 is a piece in which the course of events is defined by instructions written on

cards. Each card presents instructions to follow and implement in a sonic action. The piece puts focus on improvisation and intuitive sonic communication, on the balance between individuality and adaptation, slow process of change, and openness concerning content and shape. The piece offers a possibility of polyphonic, intricate fabric of sounds with the instructions from the cards individually interpreted by the participants. The shape of the piece is totally connected to the unique mix of participants during the current event. MORF 1 refers to no specific genre and welcomes everyone with interest in intuitive and spontaneous sonic collaboration, with a strive towards community and togetherness.

Since the creation of the piece in 2005, MORF 1 has been performed on numerous occasions, and with very different ensembles. With professional musicians and with amateurs, on prestigious festivals for experimental music as well as small jazz clubs, art galleries, private living rooms, museums, art- and music academies.

 

About Herman Müntzing

Herman Müntzing is an experimental and improvising musician and composer from Baskemölla, Sweden, who prefers to treat and mistreat different kinds of acoustic and electric objects whenever and wherever it is appropriate. His musical world embraces sounds produced by “normal” musical instruments as well as short-circuit video-mixers, children toys, found objects and slowly rolling ping-pong balls. He is also the creator of 12 stringed experimental instrument “Flexichord” built out of strings and pickups from 2 electric guitars attached to a piece of massive wood. He performs concerts and workshops mainly in Europe, due to a stubborn decision about never ever traveling by airplane. So he travels mostly by train, performing solo and with groups, with various musicians from the “improv-scene” and with people who don’t even consider themselves being musicians.

This concert is a collaboration with Brötz, Högskolan för Scen och Musik and Kulturskolan Askim-Frölunda-Högsbo.
