WITH

Five musicians in a medieval concert hall with instruments"

it started as an exchange between australian and swedish musicians and developed into a project about climate change. The newly founded Ensemble Mykorrhiza commissioned two pieces for a series of concerts from australian composer Andrew Ford and swedish composer Emmy LIndström; Nature   for guitar, flute, cello talba and mezzo ( poems by  Jen Hadfield, Maria Takolander and Tomas Tranströmer) and Mykorrhiza, the network under the ground where trees and mushrooms communicate with eachother. After receiving the scores 

"On the stairs infront of a red farm house with sunflowers five people are standing in casual clothes"

we met up for a rehearsal week in the beautiful swedish landscape of Hälsingland. On the traditional farm we found a room to practise with time for long walks and lectures about climate change with invited teachers. The food was farmed locally and prepared for us especially. After testing the pieces for friends and family we set off to Stockholm and later to Kaunas where we were invited to participate in the
Is Arti Festival
