Øyvind Torvund

Øyvind Torvund, b. 1976. is a Norwegian composer. Often there is a paradoxical mixture of elements in his music: melodies encounter conceptual ideas, acoustic chamber music together with lo-fi sounds from home-made instruments. Many of his pieces circles around the idea of an archaic music and the representation of naïve idyllic situations. Recent pieces includes «Archaic Jam» for the SWR-orchestra in Donaueschingen 2017, «The Exotica album» for Bit20-ensemble, and «Sweet Pieces» for Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra.
