Ser du Människa? – music event and mass for choir, actors and computer

20121020, 22:00, Lunds Domkyrka, Lund, Sweden

Ser du människa?”  is not only a concert. It is neither only a service or a play. It is perhaps a state of being, where you are invited to meditate.
Based on texts from the Book of Revelations, Olof Hartman, and Arne H Lindgren this event explores ways of relating to text, sounds, music and space  within the context of the church, containing a choir, actors, computer, and a mass.

Choir: Saxenborn Singers, Conductor: Joachim Saxenborn, Actors: Kerstin Andersson, Matthias Thorbjörnsson, Priest: Lena Sjöstrand, Computer: Stefan Klaverdal

The event is a part of  a larger project including a sound installation and readings of the texts.  This event occurs as part of the Lund International Choral Festival and readings of the texts in relation to the installation.

Composer and sound artist Stefan Klaverdal is working in public with an interactive sound installation. The main project is called ”Text, Sound and Space,” and is exploring various ways of spaces and interactions, between audience and sound, text, and space, art and community, and many more.

The current version or work in progress is taking the form of a sound installation. It is based on texts by Olof Hartman and excerpts from the book of revelation. It will be possible to interact with the texts by moving in space or singing in a microphone.

The finished work will be shown in various forms during autumn 2012. The largest version will include actors Kerstin Andersson and Per Löfberg as well as the choir Saxenborn singers and will be premiered during Lund International Choral Festival in the Cathedral of Lund.
