’Like a moth to a flame’ is a three-part suite written for marimba and violin, performed together with video art. The three sections Attraction, Heart and Brain take us through the course of a love story. A course we all know in one way or another. How did yours end?

Like a moth to a flame is both a concert piece and an installation, where Anna Lundqvist collaborates with the artist Samot Nosslin. The work is composed for Stensöta from Gothenburg: Karin Wiberg, violin and Ellen Sjö Sander, marimba, who also stand for the performance at Vänersborgs Konsthall.

The composer, as well as the jazz singer, Anna Lundqvist takes a leap outside her own field as a composer and creates a two-part mood in the new work ’Like a moth to a flame’. The comfortable and familiar are mixed with suggestive and skewed sounds. Like a moth to a flame will be available as sheet music + video art at the premiere night and later on via this webpage and online stores.

Samot Nosslin allows himself to start from scratch, allows randomness to steer to new results and to take all the present anxiety expressions with a calmness, not by closing the eyes but by inoculating the world with an almost Dadaist antidote. Visually, the work hovers in and out between an everyday world, a romantic shimmer and an inner chaotic mill.

Stensöta is passionate about producing new music in collaboration with female composers with a special interest in new music in combination with improvisation – which is expressed in Like a moth to a flame. During his five years as an ensemble, Stensöta has collaborated with and performed music by a number of composers from Sweden and abroad on both regular and unusual scenes. ”

The event will be videotaped
