Trondheim Voices and Asle Karstad - Bedrock
A stellar ensemble breaks new ground
What is important now? What do we long for? Where do we find something to lean against, something to hold on to - our bedrock? This has become the pivot point for the lyrics in Bedrock. The music is composed by the ensemble's singers, and is performed in a mix of improvisation and fixed structure, of acoustic and electronic sound collages.
The human voice is a flexible and elastic instrument, and Trondheim Voices stretches the boundaries even further, through live electronic processing with its specially designed effect controllers, Maccatrol, developed by Asle Karstad.
In Bedrock, images, scenography, improvisation and composition are woven together into a sensual whole, creating a space where we can feel a connection between each other and within ourselves.
