LornaLAB: Image and Sound, Saturday 8 December 1-4 p.m. Reykjavik Art Museum - Hafnarhús,


Ríkharður H. Friðriksson

LornaLAB in collaboration with Reykjavik Art Museum offers a series of workshops in its program of events. Next workshop will focus on image and sound where composer Ríkharður H. Friðriksson and Margrét Elísabet Ólafsdóttir researcher in new media and electronic arts, discuss their own works and projects.

Rikhardur H. Fridriksson, composer and teacher in electronic music, is co-director of the Kopavogur Computer Music Centre, besides teaching Composition and Computer Music at Iceland Academy of the Arts and the Reykjavik College of Music. His music is either pure electro-acoustic music, where he works mostly with natural sounds and their movement in space, or live improvisations, playing electric guitar, processed through live electronics. In that field he either appears alone or with the group Icelandic Sound Company.

Margrét Elísabet Ólafsdóttir has a D.E.A. in aesthetics from the Université de Paris 1 in France, where she's now a PhD candidate. She is a lecturer in modern and contemporary art history at the University of Iceland and in new media art history at the Arts Academy of Iceland. Margrét is a founder of Lorna, an association for electronic arts and a co-member of board at the Icelandic Association of Philosophy.

LornaLAB is a newly founded (late summer 2010) forum for the creative use of technology. Its current function is information, resource and inspiration sharing which has taken the form of lectures, fieldtrips and workshops in its short life to date. Among its members are industrial designers, art theorists, computer scientists, AI researchers, music theorists and new media artists to name a few.

The event is free of charge and open to everyone.
