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.

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)
