The techno-violin duo GEIGEN invites guests into a cosmic violin universe. In this world, the past, present and future come together in a techno party. GEIGEN are extra-terrestrial beings who live in this undefined world. They are both violinists and guides and use their instruments to narrate a mysterious story. They do not use words to express themselves, but rather the language of the violin and electronic, unearthly sounds, created by the touch of bow and string. The two beings are synchronized in their movements and through their music they inspire physical expression among the guests.
GEIGEN is a techno violin performance duo formed in San Francisco, fall 2018, by choreographer and artist Gígja Jónsdóttir and composer Pétur Eggertsson. GEIGEN creates transformative concert experiences where the audience are participants and fellow travellers in a spaceship nightclub.
