Lau Nau will perform material from her extensive catalogue of film soundtracks and albums, building sound worlds with her modular synthesiser and voice live on stage. In this special presentation she will also play a live score to a short film.
Lau Nau, aka Laura Naukkarinen, is one of the more interesting names in the Finnish contemporary music scene. A composer, music producer and performer who’s music is imbued with a cinematic breadth of vision, while her idiosyncratic, finely honed sound world builds on fragile otherness.
She is well known for her music to films, silent films, theatre, dance and multi channel sound installations. She has held lectures and workshops on film music in Colorado College and Moscow Film School.
She works using both acoustic and electronic instruments, from traditional instruments and singing voice to analogue synthesisers and field recordings, evolving her music to new directions concert after concert, release after release.
Lau Nau’s first solo albums were released in the US (Locust Music 2005 & 2008), winning acclaim from the likes of Pitchfork and The Wire. To date Lau Nau has released six albums in Europe, USA and Japan, garnering prize nominations and a wide acclaim across fans and media.
