Århus Festival (known in Denmark as Århus Festuge) has commissioned us to make a new piece entitled ‘Lyden af København’ (The Sound of Copenhagen). The 23 minute long sound collage will premiere today August 30th in Århus, Denmark.
There will be a listening station in the foyer of Musikhuset playing ‘Lyden af København’ in its entirety from August 30th to September 8th in the opening hours of the concert hall.

DR Kunstklub organised the collection of sounds that we have used. In May and June anyone could contribute with their own recordings of various sounds of Copenhagen. We received the sound files beginning of July and with Mads at the steering wheel we have created this 23 minute long piece.
Here is an illustration made by Stephanie F. Scholz for ‘Lyden af København’. It will be printed on a postcard which will be distributed during the festival.
