NEW PIECE FOR STEMMEKLANG AND FOLEY TO THE PEOPLE!
Two calm, but productive, months have gone. I took a break from COVID-19 and spent some weeks at my family's cabin, spending the time writing new music for Stemmeklang. Inspired by the nature and the birds this piece will represent something new in this project, a live-field-recording in vocal version. I also managed to do some concerts with live foley and music for silent films together with Kjetil Shjander Luhr, before everything closed down again, Now looking forward to concerts with Stemmeklang in late November - fingers crossed!
This month I was to perform two of my site-specific projects in two of James Turrell's light works: Sound/In Light for the Ganzfeld Double Vision in Ekebergparken (Oslo) and Morgon/Kveld for the Hardanger Skyspace (Øystese). Both projects have been canceled due to COVID-19, and with that 7 concerts, including a premiere, will not happen. Nothing to do about that but still sad and frustrating. I cling to the few projects and events that actually will happen this autumn, and hope for better times. In the mean time you can IMAGINE vocal music in the amazing spaces of James Turrell.
Participated on VoxLAB VÅRFEST with singing on the premiere of Mariam Gviniashvili's piece UNITY for 8 vocalists and electronics. It is so nice to finally be a part of an ensemble and a festival again. And who would have thought that waiting for sound check and dress rehearsals would feel meaningful and fun?!?!
EG ER EIN FROSK
NyNorsk Messingkvintett did a digital concert at Sentralen UNG with my piece "Eg er ein frosk" in late June, and you kan see the concert HERE.
