Stephan Meidell is Norwegian guitarist and composer who fearlessly ventures into the unknown, using improvisation as a trusted guide. His music exists where genres dissolve, harnessing the guitar as a catalyst for electronic manipulations with sound and a harmonic core to which other elements gravitate. At Rewire 2018, Stephan Meidell conjures his latest album Metrics to life with the help of a full ensemble. Comprising musicians from a wide array of backgrounds, including Norwegian folk music, improvised and contemporary music, baroque and jazz, they create an intricately woven sound universe that unites chamber music, sound art and techno.
