Premiere of Close to You

Since the summer of 2020, I have collaborated with composer Morten Riis and ensemble recherche on the project Close to You.

With inspiration in the sound phenomenon ASMR, the project investigates whether we can create sensual closeness in a time with social distancing.

Morten and I have had several sessions with the musicians in Freiburg, where we from Jutland and Zealand, respectively, could get really close to the musicians and instruments in Freiburg with the help of extreme amplification and high quality streaming.

We found quite delicate and fragile sounds, which now become the work Close to You.

The premiere will take place on Tuesday June 1st 2021 at 8pm on www.458.dk.
