The Great Learning Orchestra + Ida Lundén: BVMJ
LUMEN PROJECT is hosting the Great Learning Orchestra (GLO), which is celebrating 20 years as an ensemble playing experimental music. Together with a choir, GLO will perform pieces inspired by the work of Pauline Oliveros and a specially-composed piece by Ida Lundén.
In 2005 I asked my parents to record my grandmother Britta, then 93, when singing an old song that her mother taught her – Så bister kall sveper nordanvinden (Bitter cold sweeps the northern wind). A song from the Swedish branch of the International Order of Good Templars with a cautionary message not to drink and to leave your sick kids alone at home without food.
I wanted to use this recording to somehow find an inner music within it. With the help of the orchestra GLO, I have deconstructed the song and tried to recall both melancholy, beauty and joy between the notes and words of this 130 years old song.
Bor vi med jorden?
Bra vänner minns juninätterna
Bröd vilar mellan jäsningen
Verkligheten menar jag behövs
Men jag behöver vanligheten
Jag bor vid mörkret
Jag begriper varsamhetens möjligheter
Jag börjar veta mer
