Collaborating with the glass-artists Lars Kværne and Pal Roland Janssen, we have explored the creation of instruments with various types of construction, shape, and coating techniques. We have explored three di erent types of creating music with the instruments: improvisation, improvisation related to composed material and fully composed material. One finding is that the objects which do not have a clear pitched sonority are the most musically interesting. This is because they allow for experimentation with more complex timbral and textural nuances.
