URTID – Lyden af Oldtiden

On the 12th and 15th of June Anders Børup, Ying-Hsueh Chen and myself performed URTID, a sound walk concert by Laurits Jongejan. The idea person behind it all is Eva Fock. She and Ingeborg Okkels made instruments with a school class with materials that for most part would have existed in antiquity. They made shakers of bones and shells; simple pan flute made with branches of elder trees; and bullroarers made from wood (we had some in bones as well). Then the children joined us musicians in the sound walk. It was amazing to imagine how it might have sounded in the Stone Age. Probably very different….
I love working with these natural materials. They will certainly creep into my other projects! Thank you, Eva!
