Ríkharður H. Friðriksson
Ríkharður H. Friðriksson’s music falls into two general categories; he either makes pure electro-acoustic music, working with natural sounds and their movement in space, or he does live improvisations, playing electric guitar, processed with live electronics, either alone or with the Icelandic Sound Company. He teaches composition and electronic music at Iceland Academy of the Arts, Kópavogur Music School and the Reykjavík College of Music.
...e mezzo (2016) and Postcards from North and South (2008) – two electroacoustic works
...e mezzo uses sounds coming from the mouth and Postcards from North and South uses sounds either from Icelandic nature or man-made sounds from South-America. They both make use of heavily processed sounds and their movement in space as a major structural factor.
