At the city library, amidst normal visitors reading books and studying, musicians are playing intense music, but nothing is heard! However, if you wear headphones available at the site or go to a temporary web adress the mystery is revealed. You may even become part of the silent concert even if you are not aware, with microphones and sensors put out in the library.

”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.
