Draumsyn is new music for hardanger fiddle, viola d'amore and vielle composed and performed by Anne Hytta. The Draumsyn music is released on the CD Draumsyn on German label Carpe Diem January 2014.
The music is both modern and old - new and original - inspired by modal melodies of medieval music and the sound landscapes of composers such as John Cage and Morton Feldman. Some tunings in the hardanger fiddle repertoire have color names from color shades that occur at different times of the day. Throughout the day light and color change gradually - with frequent, continuous variations it is repeated over and over again...
The concert Draumsyn can be performed either solo with only candle lights as accompaniment, or with video by Ingeborg Staxrud Olerud.
