Þorkell Nordal is a composer from Iceland that utilises different means of sound-making in his compositions such as instruments, voices and electronics. In his music he likes to create musical environments where he invites the listener to dwell in – fluctuations and gradual processes over time bring narrative to the music. He mainly writes music for the concert hall but also works with site-specific sound installations. Þorkell has studied composition in Iceland University of the Arts, Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre and the Sibelius Academy. His music has been performed by various groups in festivals such as Ung Nordisk Music, Musica Nova Helsinki, Estonian Music Days, and Tampere Biennale.
