MØRT//ISUM – Double debut concert
Double debut concert at Biscenen, Teateret, 3 June 2023
The project was lead by Martin Eidesvik and Isak Dybsjord who both held a concert. Martin is responsible for MØRT and Isak for ISUM. In total 12 were involved in the bands and we had a light- and soundengineer.
The purpose was to create a thoroughly composed, making the two different concert seem connected. We wanted to create a concert for both music and nonmusical students to celebrate. In my concert I wanted to create a big atmosphere without tracks, using SPDSX, and MainStage sample and a MIDI controller linked to abelton to create it. We also wanted proper lighting and good sound which our engineers managed well. The concert was a success, approximately 85 people attended, and the mood in the audience gave us the impression that we succeeded!
The project was organised and lead by Isak Dybsjord and Martin Eidesvik. With us were 10 music students from Rythmic music at UIA, 1 light engineer who also studies music at UIA, and an external sound engineer. Around 90 people were present in the audience at the concert.
We wanted to create a prestigious concept-based concert, were we collaborated with a light- and sound-engineer to create a great experience for the audience. We also wanted to use technology in our music in ways which we are not accustomed to. For example, I used my Macbook and Ableton as an amplifier and effect-processor for my guitar. This is not very usual in rock and metal, which are the genres which represent my music the best.
