Rudolf Terland Bjørnerem is a guitarist and writer based in Oslo.
I play acoustic, electric and electro-acoustic guitar, but mainly focus on the classical guitar, utilizing it’s unique timbre as well as expanding it with preparations and electronics/amplification. I experiment with combinations and transitions between acoustic and electric sounds and with the physical placement of sound sources.
My main focus lies on improvisation and contemporary classical music, with emphasis on Open Form compositions. I currently work a lot with combining composition and improvisation, with the goal of creating spontaneous expressions within clear structural frameworks.
I also do a lot of collaborative work, creating interdisciplinary performances together with a vide array of artists.
