For wind instrument, string instrument and video
This work tells the story of three stones from the Lofoten archipelago in Northern Norway. Imagine what the stones around us have experienced, what tales could they? I’ve explored three special stones both in a sonic, textural, and conceptual context. A 3.5 billion-year-old gneiss from Reine, a quartz from a secret location, and a stone from the mountain pass of Einangen where a young girl was buried like a goddess 2000 years ago.
This piece is part of my ongoing work with sound choreography. In «Stein I-III» the performers have specific instructions of what and how to play, all connected to the video projection - visible to both the performers and audience.
