Lene Langballe and Hans Knut Sveen play their ‘prologue’ to Requiem by W.A. Mozart. The piece is based on a set of diminusions (ornamentations) by Ric. Rognoni, developed from Palestrina’s motet Pulchra es anima mea. The cornetto part is accompanied by electronic sound and thus taking the melodic line into other contexts and assosiations.

Today, you can experience the collaboration in a new constellation, where Frode Thorsen, Siri Hilmen and Hans Knut Sveen will play together with (and against) Trond Lossius’ sound installation in the old jail building. We start at 12.00 with “experiments” (work-in-progress till aboutn 13.00) and at 14.00 there will be an “official” performance, lasting ca. 20 minutes.
Not easy to predict what might catch most of your interest, we recommend you to hang around most of the time. Between 12 and 13 we welcome you to take contact with the performers and get more insight in what we are doing or trying to do.
