LUMEN PROJECT // ISAK SUNDSTRÖM
11 september, 2022 18:30
ISAK SUNDSTRÖM is a musician and artist from Gotland, Sweden. He lives and works in Stockholm. Isak also makes music under the name IB Sundström and in other projects, such as Rocks & Waves Song Circle and Skriet.
Together with an oil barrel orchestra and Lumen Voices, Isak Sundström will freely interpret Stina Nordenstam’s song The World Is Saved.
Oil barrel orchestras are often associated with carnivals, parties, and an almost brutal joy. In this performance, you will be immersed in the slowly growing soundscape of a sinking, low-key oil barrel orchestra at a carnival where everything has fallen asleep. The concert can be seen as a regret, a distorted prayer that the world is saved.
Also performing is vocalist Victoria Verseau.

Lumen Project is a non-profit organization creating immersive experiences, employing sound / light / and space to inspire awe and stillness.
The format embodied by LUMEN PROJECT seeks to redefine the concert experience as something akin to a spiritual + communal happening. Lumen Project uses extended-duration unbroken sound to invite participants into a contemplative mindframe, placing our attention in the NOW. The format’s trajectory bends always towards togetherness and shared experience, away from hierarchy and divisions… seeking to act as a harmonizing force.
The expansion beyond limited notions of time and song-based music, the unembarrassed injection of the spiritual into public life, the creation of a unifying space… this is our aim, and our small resistance against the dominant culture of frantic consumption and acceleration.
