Before Christmas, it was confirmed that the Norwegian Council continues the ensemble support for Song Circus in 2014. We are very grateful!
This winter we will start recording works by Trevor Wishart, Ruben Sverre Gjertsen and Ole-Henrik Moe. It will be recorded and released in surround format by Lindberg Lyd / 2L.

«Landscape with figures IIa» by the Norwegian composer Ruben Sverre Gjertsen will have it´s first premiere in Stavanger on the 16th of March. 45 minutes music written for Song Circus. The room is used in different ways, and the singers are positioned among the audience, and electroacoustic sounds are conveyed via a large loudspeaker setup that fills the room and creates a three-dimensional terrain. We will also perform «Persefone» by Ole-Henrik Moe.
We wish our friends a happy new year!
