one world above, another below
One world above, another below is a 45 minute chamber opera inspired by journeys abroad; nature and culture, the outer space and the inner person, electronic manipulated field recordings and classical traditions.
The piece is a reflection of one’s own reality in another context.
Composer Lil Lacy collaborated with electronic musician and composer Tobias Sejersdahl to create the electronic composition.
The piece is commissioned by Århus Sinfonietta.
Reading the air.
To listen and to respond.
