24 Oct 2020; Japanese Water Music

Under the Umbrella

It has been already three years since I started writing this piece. It was right after my opera “Skyggen(The Shadow)” and I was very much interested in raining, water and shadow at that time. Yes, I am now too. Under the umbrella, it’s kinda personal space. You cold cover your face and body and also protect yourself from something outside, the rain. Sometimes you can share that space with another one, but often with someone special.

The rain itself doesn’t have sound. When it teaches something it sounds. You can’t have a relationship by your own, you need someone to have it.

If you are in Aarhus, please come join us to share the meditative water music on 24th Oct. The concert starts at 19:30. Our beautiful friend Anja Nedremo is also performing Japanese composer Akira Nishimura’s piece.

Alto Flute: Marie Sønderskov
