Fredrik-Gran-img

Fredrik Gran is a composer originally from Stockholm. He is interested in the musical potential of  constantly flowing and mechanical processes and in experimenting with new performative and auditive strategies. His music and research intersect acoustic and electroacoustic sound ideas, employing mechanic / robotic interactive units, amplified instruments and objects, computer-assisted transcription of his own electroacoustic music and purpose-made electronic models into the notated sphere of acoustic instruments. His work covers orchestral, chamber, vocal, electroacoustic and live electronic music, as well as music for installations, dance, digital and visual art. Gran studied at the Music Academy in Stockholm and at McGill University in Montreal, where his doctoral research is connected to the Center for Interdisciplinary Research in Music Media and Technology.
