Premiere coming up!

I'm back in Denmark after a wonderful trip to the Caribbean where I found time to record some sounds for the Escarramán soundscape which premieres next Thursday. Even though the story of the opera is set in 17th century Spain the world is full of similarities and repetitions, especially when you close your eyes and listen. A lot have changed and a lot hasn't since then. A harbor is still a harbor whether it's placed on one or the other side of the pond. So to speak.
