Instrument by Espen Sommer Eide

For his performance at the Stedelijk, Espen Sommer Eide taps into his collection of musical tuning systems, both new and old, from the eerie Norwegian ‘troll tuning’ for the Hardanger fiddle to relaxing Pythagorean pure mathematical intervals. He constructs his own instruments – hybrids between acoustic and electronic – for the purpose of tuning into and out of the present time and place.
