Bodø BEAT 2023: InnOvation
At the end of the twentieth century the coalescence of cultures and sounds
expanded the range of orchestral percussion instruments.
This importation had immediate ramifications with composers wanting to use “new” sounds while percussionists were therefore under pressure to learn a variety of techniques to be able to produce these sounds. Where are we now? As performers, composers, instrument makers and as audience we have a task to look ahead and evolve new directions. This year Bodø BEAT is for innovations!
