Århus Festival (known in Denmark as Århus Festuge) commissioned us to make a new piece entitled ‘Lyden af København’ (The Sound of Copenhagen). The 23 minute long sound collage premiered August 30th 2013 in Århus, Denmark.
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 new piece, which is based almost entirely on the collected field recordings. The only exception is a few added piano parts.
This is the first of four parts of ‘Lyden af København‘. To listen to it in its entirety you will have to travel to Aarhus. There will be a listening station in the foyer of Musikhuset, from August 30th to September 8th in the opening hours of the concert hall.
