Info for Martin Rane Bauk: Through a network of illuminated streets
Martin Rane Bauck (b. 1988, Oslo) studied composition at the Norwegian Academy of Music, the Paris Conservatory (CNSMDP), and the Royal Danish Academy of Music in Copenhagen. His works can be placed in both time and space and he has worked with a multitude of collaborative partners.
“Through a network of illuminated streets” brings together the best chamber music from Martin Rane Bauck’s classical middle period (2013-17) and points towards the 2020s. This music is characterized by drowsy states and subtle humor. It is more mumbled than articulated, and is perhaps reminiscent of staring at falling snow through a window, only to be interrupted by the occasional thud as your forehead crashes against the glass. Poetry. This recording is Bauck’s first collaboration with the award-winning Ensemble neoN, and also includes interpretations from renowned Bauck experts Heather Roche (clarinet) and Ole Martin Huser-Olsen (guitar).
In addition to his work as a composer, Bauck has been active in the music festival Ung Nordisk Musikk (UNM). He was also instrumental in starting the contemporary music ensemble Aksiom in 2010 and in 2016 helped establish the Oslo-based concert series Periferien.
