Always and Never the Same

New collaboration with Ensemble neoN and Benedicte Maurseth.

Ensemble neoN premieres Benedicte Maurseth’s Always and never the same, featuring the composer on the Harding fiddle.

The piece explores the way both folk music and contemporary minimalism evolve by the use of repetitions with constant variations.

Live digital animations by Simone Hooymans, inspired by Norwegian nature and the traditional rosemaling (decorative rose-painting), flow in the background.
