TALKING NYMPH - Performance with Natural Echo
Live in Nusfjord, Lofoten
There is a fascinating new area of science that I have recently heard about: Acoustic Archeology. One of the areas of study is the acoustics of sacred sites. Often there is a special acoustic phenomena that can be found, such as a very special echo, connected to places where art has been created and rituals practiced.
On the way to Nusfjord there is a beautiful place with extraordinary echo. Has someone tried connecting with the spirit world, at one point of history, to get the echo to reply? Could there be some spirits that could be spoken to?
One female voice multiplied in the vastness of a landscape that returns the voices. An abstract ritual to honour the beauty of the natural echo. A concert and a dancing prayer.
