SOLO

Kirsten Aage, Vertical Song af Toshio Hosokawa

Hosokawa om Vertical Song: “I try to make music into the expression not of the outer layer of human emotion but its depths. I believe that the language of music is born not from a superficial place but from deeper places unnoticed in our daily lives. When I am going to sing, I want to sing songs that reach down vertically into those depths. I want to sing songs which are born from those depths and come rising up vertically to the place of our singing.” (Noter fra Works of Toshio Hosokawa V)

The Bach Project

Kirsten Aage og Yngvild Vivja Haalund Ruud, BWV 529, III Allegro

SOUND X Sound by Niels Lyhne Løkkegaard.

Om mangedobling af lyd: forestil dig at du kommer ind i lokale fyldt af mennesker der taler på kryds af tværs, tæt på høre man alt klart, men på afstand ophører man med at kunne adskille samtalerne fra hinanden. I stedet for den enkelte samtale, smelter samtalerne sammen og forvandler sig til en ny lyd.

The Secret in the Sound

Projektet er en performance hvor sanger Helle Thun og Kirsten Aage gennem den japanske og den nordiske kunst knytter natur, kultur og traditioner tæt sammen.

'A performative concert with Kirsten Aage and Helle Thun. As both of us being versatile contemporary classical musicians with strong interest in ancient cultures, the timeless Japanese zen approach to art and music is our point of departure for this performance.'
