Almir og Puffene
video by ©André Løyning
If you’re wondering what happens when you combine an accordion, ableton music software, an iPhone and a bunch of high tech boxes which contain thousands of screws, wires, lights diodes, speakers etc., then check it out here!
Almir og puffene is a non-verbal concert with accordion and 9 large custom made light boxes (designed by Kyrre Heldal Karlsen). The light boxes (puffene) also have a speaker each and they act individually based on light design as well as the music played by the accordion via the Ableton program. The music is a commissioned work written and performed by Almir Meskovic. In the piece Almir also uses looping via Ableton which creates a large ensamble feel.
