Featuring: Earchestra for Voices

A live performance in the sonic garden by Aarhus Pigekor, of a new vocal composition by Jacob Kirkegaard, with voice arrangements by Katinka Fogh Vindelev. The vocal work is composed from tones generated in the inner ear, it connects two intimate organs of the human body: the ear and the voice. The faint tones recorded deep inside the ears will be interpreted for voice and performed live. In Spring 2017 Jacob Kirkegaard has recorded the sound of Aarhus Pigekor‘s ears and collected those that emit tones. He filtered and organized all the ear ‚chords‘ into a composition that is now entirely based on tones emitted from the ears of Aarhus Pigekor.

Supported by the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia and Købmand Herman Salling Foundation.
