2020 - 2023

Scoring and performing music compositions is one facet of Mia Salsjö’s investigation of architectural forms and systems, their underlying principals of mathematics and geometry and how these representations can be traced to underlying base codes. Working from pictorial references, plan projections and meticulously plotted co-ordinates, Salsjö intersperses notational values throughout the spaces under inquiry. The resulting outpouring includes drawings, codexes, diagrams, word association games and multi-instrumental manuscripts. These give rise to films, installations and performances with chamber and ensemble groups. Now based in Australia, Salsjö has worked for many years in Havana, Cuba and in Indonesia, where both musical and architectural traditions have influenced her work.
