Reflections on unaccompanied singing 

Posted on

We would like to thank all of you who have taken time to listen to and look at our newest video with #koraleriet, as well as coming back to us with positive and encouraging comments! 

Unaccompanied live singing strips away many intermediates, there is no instrument to hide behind. There is only the singers, their voices, their bodies. At the same time as this could be scary, it sure can be, it invites to communicative aspects that are hard to find elsewhere. Being on stage with our bodies and voices could sometimes  be transformed to being there as our bodies and voices. 

  
When this happens, it is like opening the vertical perspective to time- and roomlessness. (Think about the longer vertical part of the Christian cross, as opposed to the shorter horisontal that could be said to connect us to time!) When making music as closely as possible to our bodies, we create a simularity with other singers in other places, and – possibly – times. Cultural patterns and behaviours may separate us. Embodied perspectives are more likely to connect. 

With this perspective #koraleriet continues to search for new soundscapes. We hope that you want to come along on this journey!
