Girilal Baars

Girilal Baars’ two main fields of work have long been electroacoustic composition and performance, and the research and performance of vocal folk/ethnic music traditions. Lately, his main musical concern is the meeting point of the old vocal traditional music and contemporary electroacoustic music. Lykanthropos is a fixed media piece, but a lot of Girilal’s work is focused on live-performance using realtime manipulation of voice. He is one of the founders of the male vocal quartet Äijä (based in Finland) who’s 2009 release Jet-Black was nominated for a Finnish Grammy.
