Threads for Nya Perspektiv


Tsembla live at Nya Perspektiv, Västerås, Sweden, 1 July 2017. The set was partly prepared and rehearsed during my residency at EMS Stockholm the two previous weeks and includes some samples of my work there with the Buchla systems, as well as field recordings from Skyros, Greece and a Tokyo burial ground.


Sound design for Kaisa Koulu and Anna Torkkel’s new dance piece for children, Vuokko (Anemone).

The performace shows one flower’s growth from a seed to a blooming plant. The making of the performance has been inspired by the wonder of all that is alive and the diverse miracles of growth. The porous and soft structure of the non-verbal performance, as well as the combination of different elements give space for a small spectator’s own imagination and associations. The half-hour long performance is suitable for children ages 1-12 years.
