The work for ensemble and solo soprano NADA BRAHMA – Sanskrit for ‘all is sound’ – and the viola solo RAGA III are real highlights with Eastern inspiration.

Separate to Indian natural philosophy, ATLANTIC WALL came about as an unusual mediation on the four elements. This work for mezzo soprano, electronics and video was created at deSingel in 2012. The American video artist Kurt Ralske made a video collage with original images filmed on location from bunkers at the Atlantic Wall in Northern France.

This production is part of deSingel OnLive
