Skeylja is an international artist-in-residence programme focussed
around meetings between Dutch, Frisian, Icelandic and English musicians
and video-makers. Eleven artists spend a week in Iceland and then brought
the material they had recorded to Terschelling. A dialogue took place
through improvisation sessions in which collective audio and visual
landscapes arose. This was the follow-up of 'Seeljocht', last year's artist in residence project on Vlieland (NL).
Skeylja was performed 8 times on this year's edition of the 'Oerol' Festival on Terschelling NL.
Participating musicians, sound- and video artists: Borgar Magnason | Ingi Garðar Erlendsson | Kira Kira | Eiríkur Orri Ólafsson | The Alvaret Ensemble: Greg Haines, Sytze Pruiksma, Jan Kleefstra, Romke Kleefstra | 33 ⅓ Collective | and guest artists like Tsjêbbe Hettinga.
