Apotheosis - the term for the elevation of human beings to the status of god - is a piece reflecting on the ever-growing god complex of the human race. As an abstract portrait of how the Norse god Odin achieved all-knowing wisdom and status as the god above all other gods, the piece follows a character's search for the same.
The piece is part of an ongoing research on how to interpret visual material and/or movements sonically. In "Apotheosis" the performers have specific instructions of what and how to play, all connected to cues in the video projection visible to both the performers and the audience.
