Nordic Fractals is a cross-art work – a staged concert. A unique collaboration between the Swedish/Icelandic ensemble Nordic Affect and the Danish digital artist Carl Emil Carlsen.
Nordic Fractals is a visual, interactive and digital study in microscope of the character of the North. Just like the fractals of mathematics emerge at the most surprising places in the world, the Nordic culture, nature and tone of language are woven together with common images, performances and sounds.
Nordic Affect is one of the most exciting Nordic ensembles these years. The ensemble's musicians all play periodical instruments and blend the distinctive sound of Baroque instruments with electronic and contemporary music.
The Chicago Reader wrote about the ensemble:
"Decades ago the Sugarcubes proved to be the rest of the world that Icelandic rock was its own original creation - now Nordic Affect promises to do the same for the country's new music community".
Nordic Fractals offers music by e.g. Valgeir Sigurðsson, Anna Thorvaldsdóttir, Jobina Tinnemans, Úlfur Hansson and Bergrún Snæbjörnsdóttir. The director of the ensemble, Halla Steinunn Stefánsdóttir, has created the soundscapes of the performance.
