LYD PORT was founded in 2017 by composers Mai Ane Pil Siedentopp and Morten Schmidt. They both graduated from Electronic Music and Sound Art at The Danish National Academy of Music.
Their recent works includes a stone sculpture for the project UNESCO World Heritage Centre at Stevns, where they created the piece Under Lag, that merged the synthetic plexiglass with the local grainstone.
A theme they often work with is the contrast between the synthetic and the organic. This theme is also unfolded in the project Macro Plastic The Laboratory, which is a development project for an upcoming electro-opera performance they will write and stage in 2020 at the opera house Den Fynske Opera in Denmark.
In this project they explore in visual, texture in sound and in text, the impact of plastic pollution.
In 2019 they will be a part of the residency project “Human and Wind” in the north of Denmark, they will contribute with their choir work for the local voices.
