“AND YET THEY SING” AT NABLUS CULTURE FESTIVAL

Unforgettable, beautiful and outrageous at the same time. Touching and thought-provoking meetings, especially among people in Askar Refugee Camp. Adults and children living in anything but security and hope for the future, and who struggle for dignity and freedom every single day. I am deeply grateful that I got to experience this, thankful for the people I´ve met and can I can not wait to go back.

“DETTE ER VERDA” PÅ NABLUS KULTURFESTIVAL

Uforglemmelig, vakkert og opprørende på samme tid. Sterke møter, ikke minst blant mennesker i Askar Flyktningeleir. Voksne og barn som lever i alt annet enn trygghet og framtidshåp, og som kjemper verdighetens og frihetens kamp hver eneste dag. Jeg er dypt takknemlig for at jeg fikk oppleve dette, og gleder meg til å reise tilbake.

SOUND OF A CAGE 2016

The triennial Sound of a Cage is a collaboration of an interdisciplinary and professional art field. The event will take place in Stavanger, and curator is Liv Runesdatter/CARMA Contemporary Art, Music and Dance. The triennial is built up around the legacy of John Cage and his contemporaries and it combines art, music, design, performance, workshops, lectures and topical discussions. This third edition set focus on sound poetry.

The idea of “texts without words”, text as phonetic sound, detached from semantics, can be traced back to the Futurist and Dada movements in the 1920s and 30s. Kurt Schwitter’s Ursonata is one of the first known examples of sound poetry. The art form developed into different categories, such as simulateous poetry, concrete poetry, abstract poetry and visual poetry. In the beat cultures well-known names such as Burroughs, Allen Ginsberg and Brion Gysin started using cassette recordings. European examples were found in France, Italy and United Kingdom, and names such as Bob Cobbing in the UK and Henri Chopin in France were significant figures. In Sweden a peculiar form of sound poetry developed, known as “text-sound-composition”. Behind it were persons with links to Radio Sweden and Fylkingen-groups. Important names are Åke Hodell and Sten Hanson.

ANATOMY OF SOUND

“Anatomy of Sound” is the concept that permeates all of Song Circus´ artistic work during the period 2014-2018, and it contains eight projects and fifteen composers. The repertoire focuses on the expansion of the register of expression and sound available to the human voice. In addition, Anatomy of Sound suggests a multitude of potential historical, theoretical, phenomenological and artistic angles.

The album “Anatomy of Sound” was nominated Norwegian Grammy (Spellemann). The album contain new music written by the Norwegian composers Ruben Sverre Gjertsen and Ole-Henrik Moe. Anatomy of Sound was recorded in Uranienborg Church by Lindberg Lyd in 9.0 Auro-3D and released on Pure Audio Blu-ray and hybrid SACD by 2L.
