Creative Pact 2 Day 9: Ylva Lund Bergner
Today’s composer is Ylva Lund Bergner from Sweden. She is a composer of both acoustic concert music and music with live electronics and currently lives in Denmark.. Her website is confusingly quite minimalist and yet packed with information; a few clicks will eventually show that she has a lot of information about her pieces up there. She also has a [SoundCloud page](https://soundcloud.com/ylva-lund-bergner ) but it doesn’t have anywhere near the amount of music that her website has, so it is worth persevering.
For example, I enjoyed her piece [Palabras](http://www.ylvalundbergner.com/music-info/palabras.html ) but you’ll need to go to her page to listen to it. When you get there you can also download the score and even the Max/MSP patch. I like the fragile nature of this piece, and what she says about the relationship between the live part and the electronics (that if everything is not entirely correct the piece won’t work) also reinforces this fragility.
I’m most impressed by her most experimental works. Her piece Achenar for flute, violin, different objects and electronics is particularly intriguing as a listening experience. There’s clearly a visual element to the performance, which would answer some questions about the provenance of the sounds, but wondering about these whilst listening is actually an interesting way to approach the piece too:
