MIRROR OF THE PAST uploaded
September 9, 2022
It is a great pleasure to give information about the new OUR Recordings Digital EP MIRROR OF THE PAST – based on 4 Tang Dynasty Poems. It has been great and inspiring to read the Tang Dynasty Poems that have as a common theme,- man’s wonder at and deep dependence on nature. In their apparently naive form, they explore the reverence humans used to have for nature, and give perspective to the distorted relationship we have today. As such it is a comment to the current environmental situation the world is facing today. The music is written for counter tenor, Stephen Yeseta,- erhu, Xu Ziling, - recorder, Michala Petri, - percussion, Gert Mortensen, - and guitar that I play myself.
