EIRIK HAVNES [no]
Eirik Havnes (b.1989)
Eirik Havnes is an artist, composer, musician and poet from Ålesund, with a background from Music Technology at NTNU in Trondheim.
He focuses on producing sound on the fringe of genres and technical barriers, with a playful approach to conceptuality and perception.
Feedback has been in the centre of his works for a long time, both as a concept and as a sound source; incorporating both into his installations and musical works. The same can be said about his use of sonification; the art of translating data or concepts into sound, to give the audience a different and auditive perspective on the subject in matter. Havnes have exhibited in arenas such as Trøndelag Senter for Samtidskunst, Bomuldsfabriken, Heimdal Kunstforening, Høstscena, Lydgalleriet, Meta.Morf (2014) and have released a number of records. Most recently, he has been the subject of the documentary Polyfonatura (2019), where director Jon Vatne has been following Havnes over the course of 4 years, while he is composing a cinematic score solely based on field recordings.
