The big experiment

With an unique approach to terms like work, composition and process, Damkapellet provides the listeners and the audience with completely unparalleled experiences.

The engagement of the members in the creative process and in the commissions given to composers is demanding for both composer and the co-composing/improvising/contributing musicians. The demands for the composer are among others that she must agree to things changing in the work, once it has left her hands. The musicians in the ensemble on their side are obligated to take a special kind of ownership of each work and each performance.

Alina Petrova has composed the piece Cado for the ensemble. “Cado (lat. cado – falling, ending). For any number of performers. For any instruments and voices”. Thus the composer describes her piece. At this concert the music collective Damkapellet are joined by Kvinnoorkestern, based in Malmø. Swedish composer Lo Kristenson has collaborated with both ensembles on a big work, or as the project is called: The Big Experiment. The work is being premiered at this event.
