20060316: Cave songs

 

In an article some years ago, literature nobel prize winner W.S. Naipul was asked how he was able to create characters, and have so much understanding for people. His answer was short: “You don´t write because you understand, you write because you don´t understand.”

 

To him the motivator for writing was that he had an ambition to understand the characters in his novels. I laborated a bit with this idea when working on the piece Cave songs. Prehistoric religions have always been a source of inspiration to me – but I have had problems to approach them in a direct way. Cave songs is based upon a live session, and through the fragments I sometimes feel a hint of the powers of nature.

 

This is a net-release. You find the CD for download here (Cave songs, mp3, 128 kbit, ca 27 mb). And a sleeve here
