Örnólfur Eldon & Krõõt-Kärt Kaev
Krõõt-Kärt Kaev (*1992) and Örnólfur Eldon Þórsson (*1992) have been collaborating since 2017, doing concerts and composing music together as well as working on their own.
Based in Hamburg, their philosophy of collaboration is to be completely involved in all of the works aspects during the composition process, avoiding any kind of hierarchy and splitting of tasks between the two of them.
They both studied instrumental and electronic composition with Prof. Ming Tsao, Gordon Williamson, Daniel Moreira and Joachim Heintz at the Hochschule für Musik Theater und Medien in Hannover, Germany.
Constantly discussing and questioning each other’s methods and ideas requires them to break out of their habits, rethink their creative process and to find a common ground where the integrity of the art work is of highest importance.
The process has led them to discover new ways of expression in their music, which is entirely different from what they would normally find in their own works.
