The Lemur ensemble (Bjørnar Habbestad, Hild Sofie Tafjord, Michael Francis Duch and Lene Grenager) works with improvised and composed contemporary music. Many of their works are spatial explorations through sound and music: Critical Band (2014) explores and expose acoustic architecture, the miniscule inner acoustic spaces of the instruments are explored in Mikrophonie (2014), Leilighetsportretter (2018) portraits flats as inhabited places, and Polytop (2018) is a site-specific work for the Ulltveit-Moe pavillion at National Museum – Architecture in Oslo. Lemuria (2017) enters into dialog with Guai ai gelidi mostri by Luigi Nono. Islands (and Venezia) serve as metaphors, and the form of the work is organised according to dynamics and principles of spatiality. Å lage et Lemuria (Developing a Lemuria) exposes the compositional motivations and the dynamics of the collaborative development and realisation of the work.
