About the event
Ylva-Lund Bergner’s ensemble work ‘Speak, Dodona’ is inspired by the oracle in Dodona, an ancient Zeus-temple, where it is said visitors came to seek answers by interpreting the sound of oak leaves playing in the wind. In Joss Smith’s ‘Misattributed signifiers’, performers look for connections where they might not find them. The work gradually plays with the limits of information that can be mimicked, eroding and subverting perceivable imitative connections. Jakob Glans’ ‘Festen Var Sjov’ is a ‘utterly ridiculous piece for ensemble, electronics, microwave oven and party supplies’, and Leevi Räsänen’s endearing piece ‘Tunteissin’ borrows its name and a number of musical allusions from the theme song of one of Finland's most popular soap opera television series. In ‘The truth will set you free’, Li-Ying Wu makes references to a phenomenon we encounter on a daily basis, where messages are manipulated, propagandised, magnified, and subjected to other forms of deception.The music is violent, powerful, distorted and noisy, but the “truth” gradually materialises and becomes evident.
