Guðmundur Steinn Gunnarsson – “Skorpma IV – Lofið eintal”

Ah, the sweet chaos of algorithmic composition. “Skorpma IV – Lofið eintal” is the Icelandic composer Guðmundur Steinn Gunnarsson‘s experimentation with multiple plucked strings and flutes in just intonation along with electronics. The result is a deeply affecting, supremely unsettling sea bed of electronic rumblings, mallets pounding and flutes whistling in a time signature outside the reach of us mortals. It’s a beautiful type of cacophony that is difficult to shake.

  1. Wonderful!

    But I must admit that there’s absolutely nothing algorithmic about it. I’m not smart enough for that. Just pours directly out of my fractured heart!

    Thanks for these poetic insights!
