My newly composed chamber music drama, Avskärmad, for recorder, soprano and EAM, will premiere on Saturday, June 10, at Stenkrossen, Lund, 18:00, with a second performance at Stenkrossen on June 11, 15:00.

(Previews/Open rehearsals: Inter Arts Center, Malmö, May 26 at 18:00 and May 27 at 14:00; Stenkrossen, Lund, June 9 at 19:00.)

Avskärmad is an experimental music drama project exploring topics such as isolation, ambivalence and power hierarchies in human interactions, and how our perception of reality is influenced by digital communication.

The performance is built around two central characters, a mother and a daughter, whose relationship will be portrayed on stage through music, poetry, and AI generated dialogue. The theme of the project is the challenges presented by physical interactions and nonverbal communication between humans, compared to the effortless “mirroring” offered when talking to an AI.

The piece will be premiered by recorder player Ida Höög and soprano Agnes Wästfelt.
