Live Cinema: Jeanne D Arc - Sept 26, 27
Posted Sep 24, 15:30 with tags , ,

 

I perform my live score to Dreyer's Passion Of Joan Of Arc this weekend. 

I love working with live film scores; they are living beings, growing and changing. The original score from 2003 was upgraded earlier this year to an anniversary 2013 version. I now upgrade it further to include live violin and electronics. Here is a two minute teaser video for the anniversary version, with glimpses of cues.

Festspillene: Masterpiece Revisited
Posted Apr 11, 15:02 with tags , , , , , , ,

May 31st I perform a commision for Festspillene i Bergen at Østre.

Working title is "Rose-offeret" / "The Rose Sacrifice". It's a live performance, a realtime cinematic interpretational mashup of Grieg's song Rosenlied, Stravinsky's symphony Rite Of Spring and using elements from a broad palette of Astor Piazolla's work.

These are all excisting works presented in the regular Festspillene programme of 2013, which is the idea behind the concept, to have new artists re-do classical masterpieces in a new language and setting.
