Jens Hedman: Threads and Cords

  • ©, , Threads and Cords

Artist Statement:

    Threads and Cords is a musical drama by Swedish composers Jens Hedman and Erik Mikael Karlsson consisting exclusively of sounds from the human voice and from the voice-synthesis program CHANT. The piece is based upon poems by Erik Mikael Karlsson, and can be described as surrealistically apocalyptic; a journey beyond time and space to another reality where life and death are blended together to form a new existence of being or nonbeing.
